Apple has announced the launch of a new iPad app called Swift Playgrounds that is aimed to make learning to code easy and fun for everyone. The app Swift Playgrounds is now available on the App Store. Swift Playgrounds is compatible with all iPad Air and iPad Pro models and iPad mini 2 and later running iOS 10. With Swift Playgrounds, real coding concepts are brought to life with an interactive interface that allows students and beginners to explore working with Swift, the easy-to-learn programming language from Apple used by professional developers to create world-class apps.

Everyone should have the opportunity to learn coding, and we are excited to bring Swift Playgrounds to the next generation of programmers, said Craig Federighi, Senior Vice President, Software Engineering, Apple, in a statement. Swift Playgrounds includes Apple-developed programming lessons that guide students through a series of challenges and puzzles. Apple will also regularly release new standalone challenges so that users can continue learning new skills. Swift Playgrounds uses real Swift code, thus projects can be exported directly to Xcode and ultimately be turned into full-fledged iOS and Mac apps, the company said. Apple had also released the latest iOS version last night. iOS users can now update to iOS 10.
Apple had launched the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus earlier this month and announced that it will be going on sale in India starting October 7, and prices will start from Rs 60,000. According to industry experts, the announcement of October 7 as the date for the India launch has not only improved the product availability date for the country but is also eyeing the long festive season ahead. Since Navratri is an auspicious time for shopping, dates from October 1 and with Diwali falling on October 30, this is a strategic time for Apple to register super iPhone 7 sales, they further added. Last year Apple had started the sales of the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus in India in less than a month after going on sale in the US.
