Almost three years ago in 2014, Apple introduced a new language Swift for iOS, macOS, watchOS and tvOS. Before Swift, programmers have to bang head against Objective C but that’s old time story. Swift is a new language but it is getting it shape well done. There are changes from day one to make it better and better.
Now if you are new to Apple and want to develop apps for Apple’s closed walls devices, you need to learn Swift. If you have not started doing so, you must do it because developers for Apple world earn a lot.
You must have Mac to develop apps for Apple’s ecosystem.
The book Beginning iOS 10 Programming with Swift 3 will guide you step by step. It will take you from start and will put you in advanced level. After reading a few pages from the book, now I have strong feeling to learn Swift. I have added the book in my Kindle. The summer is coming. I will have a lot of time to do stuff I like. I will add this task to my to-do-list.
