A dig from a Googler about Apple's ostensibly security-minded (in part) reason for allowing only its own browser engine on iOS & iPadOS. (Chrome, Firefox, etc. are available on iOS, but unlike on MacOS, Windows, Android, are required to use Apple's WebKit browser engine.) https://t.co/DxPLPIW8xk

If Apple allowed browser engine diversity on iOS, then fewer than 100% of iOS users would have been vulnerable over this 2 year period https://t.co/Bed5hTmhn0

It also leads to confusion: we see this iPad where certain models support certain Pencils, instead of just making it straight forward and including the Pencil. It also means they can’t focus all the attention to this accessory, because they know only a fraction of users have it.

Instead, every iPhone is “the one with the better camera” or “the one with yet another camera”. This is because at some point Apple decided to ship you nothing but the phone (remember the dock?), and so every phone update lives and dies by things that ship *in* the phone.

Alternative reality: Imagine that Microsoft didn't allow people to check any other folder except for c:\\Users\______\Desktop and only Microsoft and malware authors could use other folders.
This is what iOS and Android are like today! Ridiculous. Device vendors: please WAKE UP!

As always, I have no idea why @apple treats my Mac’s Safari browser as a “new device” after every significant system/browser update (or even a simple reboot) AND displays the two parts of 2FA on the *same* screen on the *same* device.

How is this “secure” in any way? pic.twitter.com/086VIsk98f

Apple created xcframework to simplify binary frameworks, but they forgot to think about dSYM files. That got even messier now. FB7166302

Facebook scans system libraries from their Android app user’s phone in the background and uploads them to their server

This is called "Global Library Collector" at Facebook, known as "GLC" in app’s code

It periodically uploads metadata of system libraries to the server pic.twitter.com/olwk1BPMoQ

IMHO, the headers should be sufficient to use AppKit; unfortunately, most of the developers don't add header comments. NSTableView.h always had great header comments.

What deeply worries me is that they apparently aren't QA-ing with third party panes since an empty pane is the most basic thing you can have.

Paraphrased response from Apple regarding my pref pane dark mode bug which you can replicate with a newly created project in Xcode with no added code: "Here are some things to check in your code, oh, and could you provide a sample project?"

This would also protect user privacy. Apple doesn't need to know when users launch an app.
