Channel companies active in mobile development have begun to explore Swift, Apple’s programming language for iOS and OS X.

Apple announced Swift in June at its annual Worldwide Developers Conference. The language marks a departure from Apple’s past focus on Objective-C, the key language for iOS and OS X applications. The new Swift language takes a page from easier-to-use scripting languages, which could open native mobile app creation to a wider range of developers.
Compared with Objective-C, Swift offers a simpler syntax, characteristic of more modern languages. Apple described Swift as providing “modern features” that make coding easier, noting that the language is “friendly to new programmers.” The new coterie of programmers is expected to accelerate the pace of app creation in the Apple environment.
