Swift hasn’t completely overthrown Objective-C as the language of choice for iOS developers, but new data shows it has turned an important corner in making Apple’s legacy framework a thing of the past. Since January, there's been a huge divide in the number of companies posting new positions to Dice with Swift in the job title versus Objective-C. At its closest margin, there were four times as many companies posting Swift jobs as there were for Objective-C. On average, there have been nine times more companies posting Swift jobs versus Objective-C. That doesn't mean it's time to do a 180-degree turn if you’re an Objective-C developer. While the disparity is growing, there are still 25 percent more Objective-C jobs posted to Dice, even thought Swift averages eight more job postings on a month-to-month basis than its older rival. Oddly, some months have shown a big spike in posted Objective-C jobs, but from fewer companies. That may indicate freelance or placement firms looking to round out their existing cadre of developers. The metrics don’t favor Objective-C in the actual job market, though. Objective-C may have more open positions than Swift, but applications to those jobs pale in comparison. When we look at ‘Swift’ jobs versus ‘Objective-C,’ there are typically five times more applicants to those positions. Examining ‘Objective C’ (the hash is the proper nomenclature for the language; this is just evaluating a relatively common misspelling) positions, we find the applications per position are still roughly half that of Apple's newest language, with about one-third as many postings. While there may be slight overlap of job postings for the two languages, our methodology should eliminate the bulk of any cross-over.
