Apple announced their new Swift programming language at their WWDC conference earlier this year, and now the company has announced that Swift has reached version 1.0 which is now GM.
This means that Apple will now start to accept apps that have been developed using Swift, at the moment, Apple is only accepting iOS app developed using Swift, they will also be accepting OS X apps developed using Swift when OS X Yosemite is released.
You can now submit your apps that use Swift to the App Store. Whether your app uses Swift for a small feature or a complete application, now is the time to share your app with the world. It’s your turn to excite everyone with your new creations.
Swift for OS X
Today is the GM date for Swift on iOS. We have one more GM date to go for Mac. Swift for OS X currently requires the SDK for OS X Yosemite, and when Yosemite ships later this fall, Swift will also be GM on the Mac. In the meantime, you can keep developing your Mac apps with Swift by downloading the beta of Xcode 6.1.
