Week 411

Happy Thursday! They say all things come to an end. And while this may or may not be the end, this will be the last edition of the iOS Goodies newsletter, at least until the end of this year. I’m sure you’re wondering why that is, and I’ll try to explain in the following lines. To do a good job curating the content for this newsletter, I need to spend...

Week 410

Happy Thursday! Around this time, every year, Apple announces that the App Store Connect goes on holiday around Christmas. Not this year, though. For the first time, as far as I know, App Store Connect submissions will be accepted through the holidays. Be aware thought, that they anticipate a high volume of submissions and reviews may take longer to...

Week 409

Happy Thursday! Apple’s Tech Talks have been going on for a while now, they’ve already updated the schedule. I really like the way they are listening to feedback, adding more sessions and increasing their capacity. The most attended sessions will be run again, and the sign up has been split in two, with half the spots released once and half in a second...

Week 408

Happy Thursday! Xcode 13.2 just got its first beta yesterday, and in it, the new concurrency model in Swift has been ported all the way back to iOS 13. iOS 13 is the first version that supports SwiftUI and Combine, so just imagine how much more fun writing iOS apps just became. This is still in its first beta, and as Doug Gregor mentions, it’s an enormously...

Week 407

Happy Thursday! Apple announced Tech Talks 2021, with live sessions and office hours for developers, between 25 October - 17 December. And every two weeks, a Tech Talks Digest will be published with the details of the latest developer events. macOS Monterey now has a release date: 25 October. That’s next week. I mentioned this in issue 404 as well...

Week 406

Happy Thursday! This week my attention was caught by this Twitter thread from Jeff Verkoeyen, the staff engineering lead at Google Design for Apple platforms. Jeff announces that they’re slowly moving away from the material design for Google products on iOS to use the native iOS components that UIKit and SwiftUI provide. The whole thread is very interesting,...

Week 405

Happy Thursday! Back in the WWDC week it was very easy to miss it, but Apple updated then the App Store Review Guidelines, making it mandatory for apps offering account creation to also offer account deletion? I drew attention to this tiny update back then, because I think it’s a pretty important change and it can impact a lot of apps. Now Apple added...

Week 404

Happy Thursday! Let’s start this week’s edition with a quick word of advice: if you’re not able to switch to Xcode 13 any time soon, then don’t update your macOS to Monterey when that’s out, because only Xcode 13 will work on macOS Monterey. In other news, it’s been around 10 days since iOS 15 was released and the adoption rate is around 20%, which...

Week 403

Happy Thursday! iOS 15 has been officially launched, and I guess the adoption rate will be slower than we’re used to. However, iOS 15 has been a great update on my iPhone 11, everything runs smoothly and I think it’s one of the most polished iOS updates I’ve seen so far. Great job everyone who worked on it 👏. Go update your devices so we can use async/await...

Week 402

Happy Thursday! Apple had its September event this week, where they announced new iPhones, a new Apple Watch and 2 new iPads. I was fearing a scenario like last year, but luckily we got the Xcode 13 RC and developers still have until Monday to get their apps on the App Store if they want to be live on day 1. Yes, iOS 15 will be available on 20 September,...
