Swift version: 5.0
If you know an instance of
Data contains a
String and you want to convert it, you should use the
String(decoding:as:) initializer, like this:
String(decoding: data, as: UTF8.self)
Note: you do need to know which format is used to store the string, but UTF-8 is usually the best to go with.
