Apple’s Swift Playgrounds, its educational coding app for iPad, has a new way for students to learn to code using robots, drones and musical instruments. The Swift Playgrounds 1.5 update will be available as a free download on the App Store beginning today, June 5. Swift Playgrounds is for students and beginners learning to code with Swift, Apple’s programming language for building world-class apps. Apple is working with leading device makers to make it easy to connect to Bluetooth-enabled robots within the Swift Playgrounds app, allowing kids to program and control popular devices, including LEGO MINDSTORMS Education EV3, the Sphero SPRK+, Parrot drones, and more. Swift Playgrounds is compatible with all iPad Air and iPad Pro models and iPad mini 2 and later running iOS 10 or later.
