Should I go for swift before objective-C or vice-versa? *I have completed the basic of Objective-c tutorial.

Since Swift will be used in the future, I have been thinking I might be wasting time on learning Objective-C, because it involves alot more coding. However, with Swift, it is easier to read. Any advice, on which language i go for first?

Swift is a faster newer version for iOS. I think objective-c is getting a little bit outdated. So I would say you learn Swift since it's less code, faster and a lot more functional. But if you still want to learn objective-c then feel free to, it is all helpful to you. You should pick up the language C if you are interested about that kind of stuff and then branch out from there. :)
