Changing Placeholder Text Color with Swift

I have a design that implements a dark blue UITextField, as the placeholder text is by default a dark grey colour I can barely make out what the place holder text says.

I've googled the problem of course but I have yet to come up with a solution while using the Swift language and not Obj-c.

Is there a way to change the placeholder text colour in a UITextField using Swift?

You can set the placeholder text using an attributed string. Pass the color you want with the attributes:

var myTextField = UITextField(frame: CGRect(x: 0, y: 0, width: 200, height: 30))
myTextField.backgroundColor = .blue
myTextField.attributedPlaceholder = NSAttributedString(string: "placeholder text",
                             attributes: [NSForegroundColorAttributeName: UIColor.yellow])

For Swift 3+ use following:

myTextField.attributedPlaceholder = NSAttributedString(string: "placeholder text",
                             attributes: [NSAttributedStringKey.foregroundColor: UIColor.white])
