Apple has just announced that its Swift programming language, which it first introduced at WWDC 2014 in June, has now reached GM status for iOS. This means that third party developers can now submit apps that use Swift to the iTunes App Store.
Apple added, "Whether your app uses Swift for a small feature or a complete application, now is the time to share your app with the world. It's your turn to excite everyone with your new creations." Swift will reach GM status for Mac when the final version of OS X Yosemite ships sometime later this fall.
Apple also said, "You'll notice we're using the word 'GM', not 'final'. That's because Swift will continue to advance with new features, improved performance, and refined syntax. In fact, you can expect a few improvements to come in Xcode 6.1 in time for the Yosemite launch. Because your apps today embed a version of the Swift GM runtime, they will continue to run well into the future."
