Apple has released a new cryptotechnology framework for app developers that will make it easier to create things like cryptocurrency wallets or blockchain applications.
It’s certainly odd to see a company like Apple, known for liking tight control over their users, to embrace and support something like cryptotechnologies, which were created specifically for decentralisation.
With CryptoKit, developers will be able to easily connect the dots between their Swift app and the blockchain. Apple seems to be following in the footsteps of Samsung, which has an integrated cryptocurrency wallet in its latest Galaxy S10 flagship. It’s very likely that Apple simply prefers to embrace what’s about to come instead of refusing it.
CryptoKit also helps developers to easily integrate checksum hashes into their projects, supporting standards like SHA256 directly with Swift. Previously, developers had to rely on third-party frameworks for such things, or code their own in a worst-case scenario.
While it may not be of high importance right now, CryptoKit could prove to be an essential framework for app developers in the future, with the current trend of pushing for a decentralised and open web and applications.
The framework will support iOS 13 and up once the OS is released, so don’t expect your favourite apps to implement it anytime soon.
