.h/.m files instead of .swift have different syntax

I'm using what I believe to be the most recent version of Xcode. Instead of .swift files, I have .h and .m files, both of which have different syntax than what I'm seeing in this video. Is this a new update to Xcode? If so, how can I interpret this code?

No, what happened is you accidentally created an Objective-C project, not a Swift project. Simply create a new project and when you create it on the second set-up page specify Swift.
