On Swift Playgrounds 1.5

Jim Dalrymple at The Loop reported this week on the new version of Swift Playgrounds, coming this Monday, June 5. The banner feature is users will gain the ability to connect to Bluetooth devices such as drones and robots. As Jim writes, "you can go through the lessons, just as you would before, but you get to see a robot dance, or a drone fly when you execute the code."

And of course, Apple designed Swift Playgrounds to be fully accessible.

“We made it a priority to make sure it was absolutely accessible to all kids. We partnered with our accessibility team and they were able to do some amazing things—that’s something we’re super proud of,” said Cheryl Thomas, Apple vice president of Software Engineering Operations.
