If company X has your fingerprint data to "secure" your data (and does so poorly) - what happens when they get hacked and that data is used against company Y and Z? You can't request new fingerprint or biometric data

If you want to sell SUBSCRIPTIONS via your App on Apple, you have to give them a cut. There are means to circumvent (having people go to your website to signup and pay) but taking payment and not giving apple their pound of flesh has always been operating procedure.

Lack of backwards compatibility is the issue. You shouldn't have to refactor your entire code base once a year (oh and Xcode doesn't support Swift refactoring). That is the gripe. Move the language forward, don't break it yearly. Swift is a nice language, I enjoy using it, but this is a big issue.
