Welcome back! Apple is a massive company that develops both hardware and software, so, let’s take a look at some of the programming languages that Apple uses! The process of me finding these languages was by going to their career page, looking at relevant programming positions, and tallying the most frequent languages I saw:

Let’s take a look at some of these languages!


First up we have Python, this is an awesome programming language that many developers use at Apple. Here’s the thing, Python is used for many different positions across Apple, this includes for their web development, software development, and data science roles as well! Without a doubt, if you’re trying to get a positions at Apple, I would recommend learning this langauge.

C, C# and C++

First up, C, C# and C++ are very popular languages that i’m sure everyone knows about. C is one of those languages that whatever software engineering position (even some data science positions) are going to require it regardless. C++ is another very popular language, this language was originally known as “c with classes”. Since it’s origination, it’s pretty much been it’s own language. You can build out a lot of different things with both C and C++: Games, Applications, Operating Systems, etc.. As some of you may know, C# is a language actually developed by Microsoft, but it’s used in a ton of different companies. This language is a object oriented language with a ton of different uses.
