    Swift vs Objective-C

    First appeared in 1984, Objective-C was a preferred language for iOS app development for many years. But when Apple introduced Swift in 2014, programmers started switching to a new language. Swift is designed to be compatible with Xcode, the Cocoa framework, and the Objective-C itself. It has a more readable and cleaner syntax than Objective-C and allows developers to build apps faster reducing the cost of app development.

    Why develop an iOS app using Swift?

    Swift is modern, safe, and allows for building cost-effective and high performing apps of any kind for macOS, iOS, watchOS, tvOS, and beyond.

    Responsive app

    Smooth and responsive app

    As its name suggests, Swift is built to be fast. Whether you want to build a native app for iPhone or smartwatch with Swift, it will perform its best thanks to optimized native code that gets the most out of modern hardware. Swift uses a high-performance LLVM compiler technology, just like Objective-C, and in many tests, including those conducted by our team, Swift code scored a similar performance to C and C++.

    Crushes & bugs

    Fewer crashes and bugs

    The safer your code is, the fewer bugs and unexpected crashes your users will experience, hence more of them will remain active app users. Swift eliminates entire classes of unsafe code that were common in Objective-C development. For example, in Swift, all values are non-null by default. This prevents a huge category of runtime crashes in iOS apps. Also, automatic memory management keeps memory usage to a minimum.

    Maintain

    Easy to maintain

    Every app, if it wants to live long, must be maintained. The maintenance activities involve bug fixing, new feature adding, and system updates. Maintaining verbose legacy code will always be longer and more expensive than improving applications powered by modern technologies. For example, in Objective-C, because it was created from C, we have to maintain two separate files of code. In Swift, it's two times less work.

    Interoperable

    Interoperable with Objective-C

    Swift is a successor to both the C and Objective-C languages. You can add new features written in Swift to your Objective-C application. Swift supports all existing C and Obj-C libraries and frameworks and can co-exist alongside your existing Objective-C files in the same project. We would, however, advise you to rewrite your application completely in Swift so as to reduce your app development cost in the long run.

    Take your iOS app a step ahead

    More than 1831 companies use Swift in their tech stacks, including Uber, Slack, and LinkedIn.

      Why we love Swift application development

      Swift became the most loved programming language a year after it was launched. Today, it's the 10th most popular programming language in the world. We love Swift because it's geared to the user and is created to simply work.
