Supertop Blog: How Not to Crash #1
Here’s a quick summary of what I learned:

Apple reports some crashes that other services don’t. Check for crash reports through iTunes Connect or Xcode as well as any external services.
The rules for file locking are stricter when your database is in a shared location.
It’s not enough to rely on a background fetch completion block, don’t do any work in the background without an active background task.
It’s hard to debug issues that only manifest in particular stages of the app lifecycle. If you haven’t tried it yet, learn how to use the new Sierra
Don’t forget about Technical Support Incidents, you get 2 included in your developer account payment every year. (Thanks Kevin!)

The proposed framework is sensible and expressive, yet one that is simple and obvious in hindsight. (8254 words)
