Swift 6 will be a big, under the radar change – Six Colors

Howard Oakley says that there will be very little hype for a major change that will alter the fabric of apps on Apple’s platforms:

Don’t be caught by the marketing hype in Apple’s long list of new features coming in macOS 15. Just as Sonoma’s biggest change came not in its emoji count, but in how iCloud works, something glossed over at the time, there will hardly be a mention of this year’s biggest change, with the arrival of Swift 6 and its deep concurrency.

Apple devices all have many, many processor cores, so threading and concurrency is key to optimum performance.
