iOS Swift Basics (retired) Control Flow While and Do-While Loop

Console error message

So while entering this code into Xcode I get an error in the console that reads:

Playground execution failed: /var/folders/pf/44bj9s515yz8gfskt9kckxw00000gn/T/lldb/673/playground183.swift:8:18: error: cannot invoke '<' with an argument list of type
'(Int, @lvalue [String])'
while todo.count < todo {

// For-in

import UIKit

var todo : [String] = ["Return calls", "Write blog", "Cook dinner", "Pickup laundry", "Buy bulbs"]
