The Swift Programming Language (Swift 4.0.3) Swift is a programming language for creating iOS, macOS, watchOS, and tvOS apps. Swift builds on the best of C and Objective-C, without the constraints of C compatibility. Swift adopts safe programming patterns and adds modern features to make programming easier, more flexible, and more fun. Swift’s clean slate, backed by the mature and much-loved Cocoa and Cocoa Touch frameworks, is an opportunity to reimagine how software development works.

This book provides:
- A tour of the language.
- A detailed guide delving into each language feature.
- A formal reference for the language.


  • Overall nice book but code snippets not visible on iPhone

    By arbijawe
    The code snippets seem to go outside of the screen on the iPhone and there is no way to see it. Please fix it.
  • A perfect book for mastering in swift

  • Wonderful!

    Looking to get into swift programming; so far so good!
  • Great Guide to get started

    By Hotmandead
    Learning to develop apps for iOS this was the book right from the start to strengthen my core concepts and practise swift for better app developement. I recommend this book. Thought I wish one could increase the font size of the book on full screen mode on the mac when reading as the syntax for get is a bit small and have support for single page view. In-addition the only thing which bothers me everytime I come back for reference is that the book doesnt have subtopics listed for each topic so lets say I want to navigate quickly to the subtopic “functions with no return types" in functions topic I can't dive straigh into it from the table of contents which becomes a hassle to navigate from the start of the chapter all the way to the required text. Then again its something to be desired ,but not too bad and i wish apple updates the book soon Happy Coding.
  • Good book, but terrible upgrade experience.

    By DeadlyDevice
    I’ve been reading the Swift Programming Language since the beginning, and every time a new update is released, it takes an obnoxious amount of time to upgrade my stored version on iBooks, and the highlighting is destroyed. Now I can’t remove my highlighting at all, and the download is corrupt (with the corrupt version locked on my iCloud). Just give me a PDF, FFS!!!! Inexcusable.
  • Cannot Download Swift 4

    By MageAI
    I cannot download Swift 4 because it thinks I have it although I do have older versions. It says I can READ it but it opens an older version of Swift. Rating goes to iBooks ...
  • It’s corrupt

    By Jdjdbe
    It says the book is corrupt. It’s not an isolated case as multiple reviews posted the same problems. Amazingly, it’s not fixed for quite some time! Nice job, Apple!
  • Would Be Great If I Can Read It.

    By hanjoes
    The book doesn’t work, or the iBook App in general doesn’t work very well. Basically every time I wanted to navigate to a later chapter, it goes to revision history. Apple is getting worse every year.
  • Cool

    By bikes fly
    I'm going to read this again.
  • Latest version 3.1 is corrupt

    By Reynard Sheerr
    I tried to update to the latest version. I have tried to download several times. iBooks reports that the book is corrupt every time.
