After the advantageous launch of Swift5, Apple came with a new framework for for designing the mobile applications at WWDC Developer Conference 2019. That new framework is called Swift UI, which will make the process of designing an application more flawless and beautiful.
What is Swift UI?
SwiftUI is a creative and revolutionary framework for all iOS app developers over the world. Using it, developers can create user interfaces for all Apple devices utilizing only one set of tools and APIs.
With a declarative syntax that is easy to read and write, SwiftUI works flawlessly with new Xcode design tool to keep the code and design impeccably in synchronization.
framework possesses some unique features that will bring it directly in the competition
React Native and Google’s Flutter in the cross-platform app development
industry. It will support the latest versions of iOS13 & iOS13+ but is still
in its beta version for now.
learn more about this revolutionary framework in the next section.
1. Declarative Syntax: – SwiftUI comes with a declarative Syntax that makes writing codes and deciding what UI should
do simple for developers. This will make introducing complex concepts in apps
easy and less time-consuming.
2. Design Tools: – Xcode 11 have new design tools that make building interfaces with SwiftUI as easy as dropping and dragging. For example, while working on the design canvas, every change made by the developer will be in complete synchronization with the code in the adjoining editor. In the long run, features like this will help Swift compete with programming languages like Python.
3. Previews: – SwiftUI also allows
developers to make more than one preview of their display and design on
different devices and in different orientations. This will help developers in
experimenting with their designs in terms of layouts and colors at the same
4. Real-Time App Development: – With
application development companies will get a chance to create and run their
apps in real-time. According to the conference, the Swift compiler and runtime will
be completely incorporated with Xcode 11. That implies the design canvas won’t
display the image of an approximate UI, but of the live application to the
5. Native Characteristics: – Despite the
fact that SwiftUI is launched by Apple to compose codes that work productively
on every one of the platforms, the SwiftUI is completely native. It can use all
the native functionalities of any platform to deliver interactive UI experience
at a lightning speed.
addition, SwiftUI is also incorporated with APIs, for example, ARKit that will
streamline the experience of both; the users and iOS mobile app developers.
With SwiftUI, Apples tried to come with everything that users and developers love about Apple’s systems, for example, controls and clarity is delightfully exhibited in the code written using SwiftUI. With its advanced features, it is surely going to change the way apps are designed and will set the benchmark higher for apps we called powerful.
That’s it. Hope you enjoyed reading about the new features of SwiftUI. Happy Developing 🙂
