Swift Playgrounds Updated With Improved Access to Third-Party Content, Better Touch Gestures

Apple today updated its Swift Playgrounds app for the iPad to version 2.2, introducing a number of improvements.

Third-party content is easier to discover and download within the Swift Playgrounds app, and Apple has made touch gestures for selecting code both more precise and easier to use.


The What’s Next feature that’s designed to suggest new playgrounds for users to try is now smarter than ever, and the on-screen keyboard has been revamped to show and hide more predictably.

Apple’s release notes for the update also say that unspecified bug fixes and performance improvements have been included.

– Third-party content is easy to discover and download for free directly within the app

– Touch gestures for selecting code are more precise and easier to use

– What’s Next is smarter about suggesting new playgrounds for you to try

– On-screen keyboard shows and hides more predictably

– Additional bug fixes and performance improvements

The Swift Playgrounds app is designed to teach children and adults how to program through a series of entertaining and educational “Learn to Code” lessons.

Swift Playgrounds was last updated in April with the What’s Next feature for suggesting new content to explore within the app.

Swift Playgrounds can be downloaded from the App Store for free.
