QuestionLooking for suggestions, and clarify a few things for a beginning Apple programmer Pin

I recently bought a Mac Mini, loaded up XCode and created my first app, the demo iPhone app and ran it on my Virtual iPhone on the Mac, so that part works now.

I have a couple of questions about Xcode and this project I created, that wasn't too clear to me on some YouTube videos. I sort of get what Objective C is, but not to clear on it. And I sort of get what Swift is, but not clear on it.

Is Objective C the base language? I was looking at the sample code generated and it looks like some sort of controller view system, sort of like Microsoft MVC. Or are libraries already created in Objective C and I use Swift to write simple code to execute logic and generate it to the a assigned view or screen, where the underlying Objective C code executes it.

I was just book shopping on Amazon and the web, and so many books are published on the subject, some promoting Objective C and others promoting Swift, so I'm not sure what book to buy.

My goal is to write a robust iPhone app that collects data and stores it in the cloud or on the device like where, when and notes, and then a larger app like on a iPad or Mac can analyze the data and help find fixes for the user. It's a sports app to help players be better.

I need to move fast on this and would appreciate your experience and thoughts. Or any books that I can read to catch up on this technology. I was going to React Native, but was told to just build the app with native tools by Apple.
If it ain't broke don't fix it
