How do I convert a UITextField to an integer in Swift 2.0?

I'm a beginner at swift, and was doing some testing. To tell you the truth, I barely know what I'm doing yet, so please try to explain clearly. I was making a random number generator app & wanted to add in a

so that the user can type in their guess of the next randomly generated number. I keep getting an error when trying to use the if statement to compare the randomly generated number to the number entered In the text field.

import UIKit

class ViewController: UIViewController, UITextFieldDelegate {
@IBOutlet weak var input: UITextField!
@IBOutlet weak var infoLabel: UILabel! // Displayed Before The User Clicks Button For The First Time.
@IBOutlet weak var numberLabel: UILabel!
@IBAction func go(sender: AnyObject) {
// Remove The Text Under The Button
infoLabel.text = " "

// Generate Random Number
let randomNumber = Int(arc4random_uniform(11))

// Change The "Number Label's" Text In Order To Show The Randomly Generated Number To The User
numberLabel.text = "\(randomNumber)"

// Check To See If The User Guessed The Correct Number, And If They Did, Tell Them They Were Right
if input == randomNumber {
infoLabel.text = "Your Guess,\(randomNumber) Was Correct!"

override func viewDidLoad() {


To convert the input string to an integer using Swift 2:

let guess:Int? = Int(input.text)

if guess == randomNumber {
