Apple’s Swift blog will act as a connecting point between it and the developers that will use the new programming language. The company announced Swift at its Worldwide Developer Conference in June. During the announcement, may questions were asked about the new language.
Apple has dedicated one of the first Swift blog posts to answering questions developers have about the programming language.
- Apps made with Swift and released when iOS 8 and OS X Yosemite are later this year will continue to be compatible with newer operating systems. The apps will also work with iOS7 and OS X Mavericks.
- Swift apps can be made with Xcode 6 beta, which is available to all Registered Apple Developers for free.
- Apple suggest that all extension and components of Swift apps should be made with the same version of Xcode to reduce the chance that the app will become incompatible in the future.
- Swift is currently available for use.
- Apple intends to release new tools in Xcode to help move Swift projects forward.
