Comment Did you see Apple announce door detection and other iOS 16 feature previews for Global Accessibility Awareness Day a few days ago? Don’t you love living in the future? I know I do. 🥰 Of course, Apple didn’t say it, but as impressive as door detection is on a phone/tablet, it transforms into a life-changing one inside...

Comment I want to start this week with the story of the first Apple product I owned, a third-generation iPod. This week, Apple finally retired the product line, and my thoughts went back to my first few minutes of owning it. I was very much in the Microsoft/Windows camp at the time, and I remember being very sceptical and...

Comment This week saw Apple announce a few more details about the in-person portion of this year’s WWDC. Even though these words make no appearance on the page, I love how the URL to the page ends in “special-day”, and I’m sure it will be exactly that for those that attend. The circumstances mean that it will almost certainly...

Comment This week saw many developers receive notices from Apple saying they will remove apps from the store that haven’t been updated for more than two years. I actually thought Apple had done this before, but I can’t find any evidence that they did. From the wording in the notices, though, it seems likely to happen this...

Comment One thing I’d love to do a better job with for this newsletter is noticing when Swift packages get significant updates so that I can link to more of them. This community invests so much time and effort into open-source Swift libraries, yet we’re often not great at telling the world about our open-source work. I...

Comment If you read one thing this week, read this post by Rich Mogul on security and the App Store. In my opinion, it’s an excellent article, and he makes a good case for why both side loading and alternate stores would hurt the security of iOS. Tim Cook also spoke publicly at the IAPP Summit this week about privacy, the...

Comment Last week, the custom, automated subscription change people saw in Disney+ was surrounded by speculation. This week, we’ve had confirmation from Apple via Sarah Perez at TechCrunch: An Apple spokesperson did not dispute the accuracy of the developers’ claims we presented and said this was part of a pilot test. ...

Comment When swift-numerics debuted in 2019, Steve Canon mentioned that you might have expected some of the APIs to be a part of the standard library. He talked about a few reasons why, but the primary benefits were that more people could be involved with the API design and that enhancements to new APIs could be independent...

Comment If you’ve visited iOS Dev Jobs over the last couple of months, it might look the same as when it re-launched, but it’s not! I thought it was time for a quick update on some improvements since the new site went live. There are new features, like filtering jobs on the web version (The original only had filtering for...

Comment As John Ternus left us with “just one more product to go, Mac Pro” at the end of last week’s event, my thoughts turned to how Apple might get to that Pro machine from the Studio. The biggest problem facing the Apple silicon Mac Pro isn’t CPU or GPU performance. It’s memory. You can configure an M1 with a maximum...
