SwiftUI – Ready for Prime Time Production Apps

Apple’s annual developer conference, WWDC20, went all-digital last week and brought much more insight to Apple’s iOS developer intentions. One topic we have been following closely is what’s new for SwiftUI, Apple’s declarative UI framework released last year at WWDC19. As you might guess, support is expanded for more platforms, and with new features.

SwiftUI can now be used for:

  • iOS Apps
  • Watch Apps
  • iPad Apps
  • tvOS Apps

SwiftUI Device Support

While SwiftUI requires devices to run minimum of iOS version 13.0, as of June 17th, Apple’s latest Usage Report shows iOS 13 at 94% adoption among all devices sold in the past 4 years, and 82% of all devices. Unless you’re needing to support some really old devices, there’s no need to hold back from adopting it for your latest project.

We recently released a brand new Formula 1 news app written using SwiftUI, check it out here.
