"The scheme has been criticised for not providing an Apple version of the app to scan your passport and face."

I wonder if the criticism stems from the other problem: "The app has had mixed reviews, with many users unable to get it to take an acceptable photo of their passports."

I have found the cameras on iPhones/iPads to consistently be good, however, with Android phones - due to the greater range etc. results are very variable. Hence I can see users complaining without understanding the poor image quality is down to them using a cheap phone...

>"Last time I checked Apple only had 15% of the mobile market so surely it makes sense to focus on the much bigger alternative mobile platform"

But what about the target user group for this app...
