How we cut our iOS app’s launch time in half (with this one cool trick)
Building with frameworks at Automatic has sped up our development workflow and improved our code quality by enforcing strong boundaries between our components. In total, our iOS app contains over 40 first and third-party frameworks: one for consuming our HTTP APIs, another for interacting with our hardware devices via CoreBluetooth, and so on. Although this pattern has made development easier, it came with a cost: slow app launch times.

Daring Fireball: Ikea Details Plans for Furniture Placement App Powered by Apple's ARKit
Mitchel Broussard:
At WWDC this year, Apple senior vice president of software engineering Craig Federighi performed a demo of the company’s new augmented reality platform, ARKit, while mentioning popular furniture company IKEA as an upcoming partner in the technology. Similarly, Apple CEO Tim Cook referenced an Ikea AR partnership in a recent interview with Bloomberg Businessweek.
Now, Ikea executive Michael Valdsgaard has spoken about the company’s partnership with Apple and ARKit, describing an all-new augmented reality app that will help customers make “reliable buying decisions” for Ikea’s big ticket items.
Very cool idea — probably the sort of thing that’s going to be common soon. I’m curious how much of a leg up ARKit will give iOS on this front.

One Weird Trick to Lose Size – Halide
One Weird Trick to Lose Size
Popular social networking apps are over 400 megs. With weekly releases, over one year you’ll download twenty gigs of data.
Since we launched Halide, the most unexpected compliment we’ve heard is about its size. At 11 megs, we’ll push less data in one year than a social network pushes in a single update.

Daring Fireball: How to Build Smaller Apps
Ben Sandofsky:
Popular social networking apps are over 400 megs. With weekly releases, over one year you’ll download twenty gigs of data.
Since we launched Halide, the most unexpected compliment we’ve heard is about its size. At 11 megs, we’ll push less data in one year than a social network pushes in a single update.
“So you aren’t using Swift,” asked a friend. After all, Swift bundles its standard libraries into your app, bloating its size. Halide is almost entirely Swift. How did we do it? Let’s start with the technical bits.
His conclusion is spot-on:
There really is one weird trick to lose size: focus on your customers.
