The docs have indeed declined in quality. As you pointed out, Inside Mac set a high bar they abandoned by decimating the technical writing department.

The quality of their software has also plummeted.

But with declining iPhone sales, Apple just can't afford top-notch staffers.

I bought $999 2018 MacBook Air and don’t feel bad about my purchase. If it wasn’t on sale I would have purchased the MacBook Pro instead.

Besides only charging a 5% fee, the Google Chrome Web Store also pays developers in a reasonable amount of time. For example, my payment today included a sale from a week ago. In contrast, Apple App Store takes forever to pay out.

The TidBITS membership program gets you a ton of discounts on software, but more important, you support great tech writing and analysis (still going strong since before the Web existed!). https://t.co/nIq7wAEaQk

One of the great things about being in business for 15+ years with @basecamp has been hearing from people who tried the product a years or a decade ago, didn't like it or it didn't stick, who then gave us another shot and was shocked by how it finally clicked and they loved it ❤️

In fairness, the docs haven’t declined in quality. Apple simply hasn’t written anything beyond semi-automated class references for the last few years.
Yes, some of macOS etc. has quality issues too, but Mojave is generally much better, and there has been much worse in the past.

Did I ever tell you about the clang bug we found a few years ago, where the compiler would go into an infinite loop when compiling certain buggy code that had an infinite loop?

Gave $50 to https://t.co/QYwYZuVopZ. Worth every penny. After a week of use, no problems and everyone has noticed a speed improvement.

USB ports are confusing because they often don’t work the first time, but if you know what the spec says, it’s even more infuriating when it isn’t followed.

I’m trying something new with @CapsicumApp. I’d like to offer a 14 day free trial without requiring those days to be consecutive and without automatically charing at the end of the trial. What are the chances that makes it through App Review? 🤔

If Apple wants to continue to profit handsomely from selling $5000+ computers to pro users, then it has to invest in a suitably pro OS, with suitably pro class libraries to support rich 3rd party development. It’s a simple choice, and it can’t claim poverty in its defence.

That makes as much sense to me as Brexit, thanks!
If you’ve got a fundamentally good OS with more users that it has ever had before, and solid support in its class libraries, throw the whole lot away for something inadequate, then wonder where all your pro users have gone.

Really? That would spell the end of macOS and Macs, IMHO.
