Difference between a struct and a class in Swift.

Every swift developer who has at least 6 months experience will know about Struct, Enum, and Class. Everyone use them on a regular basis without knowing what they are and when and where to use them. I will try to make it simple.

Value Types and Reference Types

An instance of a class is traditionally known as an object. But it is better to use the term Instance as we are dealing with struct and enum as well.



What are the common factors between struct and class?

Memberwise Initializers for Structure Types

struct Resolution {var width = 0var height = 0}let vga = Resolution(width: 640, height: 480)

When and where to use them?
