Yes, the title is a little dramatic, but this subject has also been on my mind since learning Swift. As the Swift standard library expands, how long will it be until Foundation (as we know it) is replaced, and then what? UIKit? Like Mattt, I don't think this will happen very quickly but jumping forward 5 years I can imagine that the iOS code we're writing with Swift today will look very out of date.
As I understood it, the existing 90 day returns policy for apps didn't ask very many questions before granting a refund so I'm not sure this news is as huge as the media is making it out to be. Regardless, in the EU there is now a blanket, no questions asked refund policy not only for the App Store but music and video purchases from iTunes too.
