In the previous tasks, we modified variables, but what about variables whose values we don’t want to change? Constants in Swift are in charge of this task.
Constants, unlike variables, cannot be reassigned during their lifetime. In Swift, when we assign a value to a constant, it becomes immutable. This means that the data it contains cannot be altered.
Constants are declared in Swift with the
let radius = 4.14;
So, why do we use constants in the first place? Constants are primarily used as a safety measure. We make our programs safer by using constants, which ensure that we only change the values we expect to change, preventing some potential bugs.
