How to reverse a string using reversed()

Written by Paul Hudson    @twostraws

Reversing a string in Swift is done by using the reversed() method on its characters, then creating a new string out of the result. Here's the code:

let str = "Hello, world!"
let reversed = String(str.reversed())
print(reversed)

That will print "!dlrow ,olleH" to the Xcode console.
