How to convert a string to array in Swift

To convert a string to an array, we can use the Array() in Swift.

Here is an example that splits the following string into an array of individual characters.

let name = "King"
let arr = Array(name)
print(arr)

Output:

["K", "i", "n", "g"]

Similarly, we can also use the map() function to convert it.

let name = "King"
let arr = name.map { String($0) }
print(arr)
  • The map() function iterates each character in a string.
  • String($0) helps us to convert the Character to String.

or you can use the traditional for loop.

let name = "King"
var arr = [Character]()

for char in name{
    arr.append(char)
}

print(arr)
