Swift is a multi-paradigm, compiled programming language developed by Apple for iOS and OS X development. Introduced at Apple's developer conference WWDC 2014, Swift is designed to replace Objective-C, Apple's object-oriented language, while working with Apple's Cocoa and Cocoa Touch frameworks and the large body of existing Objective-C code written for Apple products. Swift is intended to be more resilient against erroneous code. It is built with the LLVM compiler included in Xcode 6 beta, and uses the Objective-C runtime, allowing Objective-C, Objective-C++ and Swift code to run within a single program.
Truth be told, I have my own idea regarding the true motives behind Swift. Unfortunately this is pure speculation and have no way of "proving" it.
For this reason, I'd like to open it up to you and hear what you have to say.
