    Apollo iOS, on the other hand, generates Swift types from queries in our "queries.graphql" files and supports caching out of the box. Generating types from the SDL is not per se a problem, but it becomes cumbersome and error-prone with large nested queries. Apollo iOS also strongly-binds the generated structures to your queries, making it almost impossible to translate fetched data into an internal state.
