Swift Playgrounds now allows you to build and publish apps on your iPad

Swift Playgrounds was first revealed during WWDC in 2016. The app initially would only work on iPads, but Apple has recently expanded support to include macOS, too. Last June, the company announced during WWDC21 that Swift Playgrounds 4 would allow iPadOS users to publish iOS apps directly from their iPads, without needing Xcode on a Mac. The wait is finally over, as version 4 of the app is now available on the App Store.
MacRumors has reported that Swift Playgrounds 4 is finally available to iPad users. The update allows you to independently build apps and publish them to the App Store without needing a Mac. This change brings the tablet a step closer to becoming a PC replacement, as Apple markets the device. The full changelog of the update is:
Swift Playgrounds 4.0 features:
– Build iPhone and iPad apps with SwiftUI right on your iPad (requires iPadOS 15.2 or later)
– App Store Connect integration lets you upload your finished app to the App Store
– App Preview shows live updates…
