    In these 10 years, the app store has fundamentally changed the way we live.
  • Scott Stein 6/4/2018 5:06:27 PM
    Can't believe it's ten years old already. I, too, am old.
  • Connie Guglielmo 6/4/2018 5:06:34 PM

    We know that developers are a powerful group of creators...We want more people to learn the power of code and it all starts with Swift and Swift Playgrounds.
  • Connie Guglielmo 6/4/2018 5:08:08 PM
    We've made it easy to learn to code -- as it is easy for our products to use. Cook says it's the fastest growing programming language out there. Over 350,000 apps on App Store written in Swift.
  • Connie Guglielmo 6/4/2018 5:08:25 PM
    Learning to code has so many benefits -- it develops problem solving skills.
