SwiftUI date picker is a very handy built-in modifier(DatePicker) for selecting a specific date, time, or both. A date picker has four modes: date, time, date and time, count down timer. You can display date picker in contact, wheels and inline style. You can present the date picker in the following way:

struct ContentView: View {
    @State private var date = Date()

    var body: some View {
        VStack {
            // Full date time
            DatePicker("Date:", selection: $date)

            // Time
            DatePicker("Time:", selection: $date, displayedComponents: .hourAndMinute)

            // With style
            DatePicker("Time:", selection: $date, displayedComponents: .hourAndMinute)

If you want to show the whole calendar to pick the date you can use .datePickerStyle(GraphicalDatePickerStyle())

 DatePicker("Date:", selection: $date)

You can also play with different types of range while using the date picker. The most commonly used range is …Date() where you can select any date until the present date or Date()… to select the date from the present date.

DatePicker("Date range", selection: $date, in: …Date())
