Can You Code On iPhone?

You don't need prior experience to dive right into creating apps for Apple platforms. Apple's app development curriculum makes it easy for anyone to code in Swift just like the pros — whether it's for a semester in school, for professional certification, or to advance your skills.

I think it has a lot of potential. With a bigger screen and maybe an external keyboard it could be a pretty mobile setup. 😁

Been thinking the same! Maybe with a foldable display smartphone? 🤔
