Swift Playgrounds 4 lets iPads submit apps to the App Store without a Mac
Apple released the long-anticipated fourth iteration of its Swift Playgrounds app yesterday. The app is available for iPadOS 15 and macOS Monterey and it allows users and developers to create new apps using the Swift language.

Finally, the new Swift Playgrounds 4 version allows developers to submit new apps to the App Store directly from their iPads. Previously, a developer could have designed an app on the iPad, but they needed a Mac to submit it to Apple’s App Store.

According to users, the new Swift Playgrounds 4 is much faster and flexible compared to the previous versions of the app. Swift developer Paul Hudson praised the app on Twitter.

The Swift Playgrounds 4 app was announced at WWDC earlier this year. There were developers who received early copies of the app and gave very positive feedback.

Apple’s Swift Playgrounds 4 can be used for creating apps even by people who don’t know how to write code. The app includes lessons on the concepts of coding which advance as the user progresses. The Swift Playgrounds app is an alternative to Apple’s main programming app, Xcode. The two apps are enabled to transfer codes back and forth between them, which is very useful to advanced developers.
