        let time = Date().timeIntervalSince1970


        returns


        1484904148.363985

         

        1484904148 is the epoch time in seconds,

         

        What is 363985 ? Must be millseconds in there somewhere....

          timeIntervalSince1970 is a floating point count of the number of seconds since the UNIX epoch.  The numbers after the decimal point aren’t milliseconds per se, but fractions of a second.  You can get milliseconds by rounding the value to three decimal places, microseconds by rounding to 6, and so on.
