Swift – Create Array with Initial Values

To create an Array with initial values in Swift, use square brackets. Get all the initial values, separated by comma, in the opening and closing square brackets. This is our Array with initial values. We may assign it to a variable.

Example

In the following program, we create an Int Array with initial values: 2, 4, 6 and 8.

main.swift

var someEvenNumbers = [2, 4, 6, 8]
print("Array : \(someEvenNumbers)")

Output

Array : [2, 4, 6, 8]

Similarly, we could create Array of any type with required initial values of that type.

Now, let us create an Array with initial values: “United States”, “India”, “Russia”, “China” and “Japan”.

main.swift

var someCountries = ["USA", "India", "Russia", "China", "Japan"]
print("Array : \(someCountries)")

Output

Array : ["USA", "India", "Russia", "China", "Japan"]

Conclusion

In this Swift Tutorial, we learned how to create an Array with initial values.
