Apple announces Swift Playgrounds so kids can learn to code on an iPad

Apple wants your kids to learn how to code. The firm wants it so badly that it released an app called Swift Playgrounds, which is to be the building block toward a world of Swift developers.

It's been two years since Apple introduced its in-house programming language, Swift. Since then, the firm has open-sourced the project, hoping to make it even more robust.

Indeed, the language has continued to grow in popularity, mainly because it's now available on other platforms.

Swift Playgrounds introduces basic programming concepts to kids, such as conditionals and loops. In fact, Apple thinks that programming should be required learning for children, and making Swift Playgrounds a free app is the first step toward that.

The app is available right now, if you're a registered Apple developer. All you need is an iPad running the iOS 10 beta, and it comes preinstalled.
