Date struct conforms to both
Comparable, which means you check two dates for equality and compare them to see which is earlier.
In practice, this means you can use
== to compare them just like you would do with strings and integers. Try this in a playground:
let now = Date() let soon = Date().addingTimeInterval(5000) now == soon now != soon now < soon now > soon
