iOS Dev Weekly - Issue 503 - Apr 16th 2021

Comment I’m sure I’m not the only one who has a constant stream of ideas related to software I either work on now, or may work on in the future. The quality of my ideas varies wildly, and it’s often the worst ideas that shout loudest at me to drop everything and start working on them. 😅 You’ll never be perfect at knowing where...

Comment Many years ago, back when I used to be a .net developer, I remember feeling frustrated by Microsoft developer marketing. They needed to sell Visual Studio upgrade licenses every year, so their messaging was always around what was coming in next year’s release. As soon as every major version released, it felt like it...

iOS Dev Weekly - Issue 501 - Apr 2nd 2021

Comment Even though some countries are making good progress with deploying vaccinations and reducing cases, there was little doubt that this year’s WWDC would be virtual again rather than in-person. So it was no surprise to see the announcement this week of another all-virtual WWDC starting on June 7th. 🚀 Apple is also...

iOS Dev Weekly - Issue 500 - Mar 26th 2021

Comment It’s not only a milestone for OS X/macOS this week. Here we are at Issue 500! It was almost ten years ago, but I can recall pressing send on Issue 1 quite vividly. I remember at first being surprised by and then immediately loving the Mailchimp high five. I remember wondering if I had made any typos or got any links...

iOS Dev Weekly - Issue 499 - Mar 19th 2021

Comment You may remember back in January when I mentioned that some community members had kindly stepped up to run this year's iOS Developer Community Survey. Well, I'm delighted to say that they were successful, and they recently unveiled the results of this year's survey. Thanks to Chris Hefferman and Dragos Dobrean for...

Comment In around three months, we’re likely to be settling into our comfiest chairs to watch this year’s WWDC announcements. Thinking about that made me consider what I’d most like to see this year, and if I had to pick only one thing, it would be improvements to Xcode. Do I wish for an iPad version? Nope. Am I hoping...

iOS Dev Weekly - Issue 497 - Mar 5th 2021

Comment One of my wishes for last year’s WWDC was that we’d see Xcode level up its support for projects opened from a Package.swift file. Compared to working with an xcodeproj or xcworkspace project, it can feel a little bit like you’re using “Xcode Lite” when working on a Swift package or server-side Swift project. So,...

Comment “Clubhouse” would like to access your contacts. Knowing what apps do with contact data after issuing a prompt like this, my default answer is no every time I see this prompt. There’s been plenty of criticism of apps that use these prompts over the last couple of weeks, mainly aimed at Clubhouse as they built their...

iOS Dev Weekly - Issue 495 - Feb 19th 2021

Comment In my comment last week, I said: I don’t want someone else being able to judge the value of what I produce, that’s the market’s job. Apple doesn’t want to go there either, even in regular times but especially not with potential anti-trust issues looming. Rarely is anyone this wrong this quickly. 😂 It appears...

iOS Dev Weekly - Issue 494 - Feb 12th 2021

Comment If you follow Kosta Eleftheriou on Twitter, you’ll have seen his recent campaign to yet again urge Apple to tackle scam subscription apps on the App Store. Kosta isn’t the first person to embark on this mission. Many have tried, most notably David Barnard who attempted to effect change for years. I’ve commented...
