    Will I be able to program on it? Is it possible now (I have an iPad Air 2, btw)? Thanks,

    What do you mean? As in run apps you've created in Xcode or actually write code and compile on an iPad?

    Xcode 7 allows you to test on device even on iOS 8. Xcode is a Mac app.

    Yes, write and compile.

    Not on the device itself. You'll need a Mac and Xcode to do that.

    I guess I was wondering if Xcode was going to be available to use on the IPad with these new updates. The other question is if it's possible to do any programming on the iPad.

    Nope, Xcode is only available for Mac.

    However, I think you can use this site on an iPad...it works like a Swift playground for Swift programming: http://swiftstub.com

    You can't make apps with the site though, it just let's you fool around with Swift code

    With swift now being open source, does this open up any possibilities for third party development environments to come to the app store?

    It would be cool to do swift tutorials and write code on the iPad itself, even if you can't develop apps.
