Apple recently unveiled a new programming language Swift, to replace Objective-C for OS X and iOS application development. The advent of Swift marks the transformation from a decade old language to a naive yet effective programming language – Swift. The main purpose of introducing Swift is to provide a new easier, simpler, more flexible programming language to code than Objective-C.
As per recent rankings by a popular index, Swift has overtaken Objective-C to become the 14th most popular language among iOS developers around the world.
Swift extends many out-of-the-box features which make app development easier and faster. It is surely a difficult task for developers to completely do away with an already habituated language.
Here is an infographic highlighting the 12 key differences between Objective C and Swift to help you choose the right language.
