Yup. The Linux version of Swift is for building code that runs on Linux. If you wanted it to build code that runs on iOS there are a bajillion other things you’d need that aren’t included — ARM cross-compilation, Mach-O executable generation, integrating with Apple’s Objective-C ABIs, a full set of headers for the iOS frameworks, and so on.
