Comment There’s no long introductory comment this week. Instead, I’m going to start by wishing those of you who celebrated Thanksgiving yesterday a happy one! I hope you managed to make the best of what must have been an unusual day, given the circumstances. I hope you all managed to celebrate the good things in your lives....

Comment Sometimes, not having to write about the latest Apple developer news until Friday is a blessing. If an announcement drops early in the week, it gives me a few days to think about how I really feel about it before having to write my opinion down for all eternity. I like it. 👍 Other times, like this week, it means that...

Comment As I write this, the first Apple Silicon Macs are making their way across oceans labelled with the names and addresses of lucky, or impatient, people all over the world. We got a glimpse at the future of Mac hardware this week, and I’m excited about it. The only thing I was hoping for a hint towards, that they didn’t...

Comment It’s (presumably) Apple Silicon time! Of all the events that Apple have held since WWDC, this is the one I’ve been most looking forward to. That’s not to say that the new iPhones and other products aren’t exciting, but this is the one I’ll be glued to. I won’t make any hardware predictions or comment on any of the...

Comment Pricing is a vast, complex topic, and it’s hard to talk about in generic terms – it’s far too dependent on the product being priced. Business models are easier to talk about, proven by the multitude of posts every year about paid-up-front vs in-app purchases vs subscription. Upgrade pricing, feature unlocks, I’m...

Comment Let’s talk a little more about the App Store, shall we? Fear not though, I’m not going to talk about problems this week, but opportunities. Specifically, an opportunity offered by iOS 14 that you might not have considered. Grab an iPhone and check out the marketing page for Phoenix2, an iOS game. See that banner...

iOS Dev Weekly - Issue 478 - Oct 16th 2020

Comment I really enjoyed reading Riley Testut’s article “Thoughts on the App Store” this week. He talks about the legal challenges Apple are facing and how sideloading might be in the platform’s future. His piece talks about the mounting pressure on Apple to deal with this situation and how he sees two possible options:...

Comment Is everyone ready for their phone to feel slow and outdated? 😬 Dave Verwer Sponsored Link Orchestrate macOS VMs on genuine Apple hardware - Try Orka With Orka and MacStadium, moving your Mac build infrastructure to the cloud is just as easy and powerful as using AWS or GCP....

iOS Dev Weekly - Issue 476 - Oct 2nd 2020

Comment It’s been a joy to hear to the story behind Widgetsmith direct from David Smith this week. I don’t often link to podcasts, mainly because I don’t listen to tech podcasts anymore (I stopped because I spend too much time reading tech and reserve my podcast time for other subjects). But I made two exceptions this week...

iOS Dev Weekly - Issue 475 - Sep 25th 2020

Comment It’s always hard to tell which features of a new iOS release are going to be a hit with your app’s users. Should you spend time creating a widget, an App Clip, adding support for Siri, or any of a multitude of other system features that Apple adds each year. It gets even trickier to make those decisions when you’re...
