Announced earlier at WWDC 2021, Swift Playgrounds 4 is finally here.

Earlier versions of Swift Playgrounds have mostly been a tool to teach beginners coding, but the latest version can now function as a standalone developer's tool because users can now develop apps for iOS and iPadOS directly on an iPad without the need for a Mac.

To do that, Swift Playgrounds 4 has an App Preview feature that shows users real-time updates as they make changes.

There's also an App Connect feature that lets users upload their completed app to the App Store.

You can download Swift Playgrounds 4 for the iPad here.
