Now the question is if the "MacBook" with no suffix will make a return in the form of being the first non-Intel Mac in 15 years🤔

Yes, @zoom_us is a garbage fire that deserves to go bankrupt.
But we need to analyse why they do this: it’s because macOS doesn’t provide the frameworks & infrastructure to implement these features in a simple & secure way.

"The Pro model informally known as the “MacBook Escape”—so nicknamed because of its physical Function and Escape keys that the Touch Bar replaces on higher-end versions—is kaput." https://t.co/ASkSZeH82u

Dear Apple, Drop the absurd Touch Bar already. It is an embarrassment.

I would like it if Mac laptops came with a no-camera option. I never use it. It’s just a privacy and security issue waiting to happen.

Theory: It's another thermal corner. They couldn't add anything to the product w/o a redesign because of the fanless thing, they couldn't get it down under $1000, and decided (early on, I guess!) to replace it with another Air.

My daughter has one and loves it 🤷🏻‍♂️

Can we talk about how Safari's "security policy" makes an exception for App Store app?

Fans: "That's different, because... umm..."

Me: The phrase you're looking for is "services revenue"

The reason iOS devices generally get good battery life is yes partly because ARM is more efficient, but also it has a lot to do with how restricted processes are on iOS, how little RAM and other peripherals they have to power.

People who assume that running a Mac laptop on ARM will magically give them all day battery life or something really should go back and read reviews of the Surface Go.

There’s also an implied level of stability in a public beta that’s not in a developer beta. We know they’re basically the same builds, but to normal users “public beta” means “safe, but some stuff might work weird"

This (via reddit) is highly intriguing, particularly the "requiresGameController" flag, which suggests that we may be on the dawn of a very exciting new era in iOS gaming indeed. https://t.co/2sgo2ZVDCT

Zoom had a cascading failure of product decisions, security bypasses, and then a terrible hand-waving blog post—which has been updated several times, and they’re finally doing the right thing. https://t.co/PROJzhOYux

As developers *we* have to deal with the reality of our users. It’s not our users that have to deal with our hairsplitting definitions of technical terms.

If everybody thinks „a beta is just fine“, then it’s *our* problem for teaching them so, not theirs.

> I don’t think I’ve ever seen a 12-inch MacBook in the wild
You are welcome to visit the ARI. This is by far the best mobile Mac (and for non-mobile you use a proper desktop)

Yeah. And I bet it's hard for macOS because most of the APIs you want to sandbox were built with the assumption they always succeed, making anything other than a modal hard to retrofit

*I* know what a beta is and what that means. But in times where everything is a beta, people tend to to forget.

imo, a company giving betas to millions of people is responsible for doing this in a responsible manner. As a minimum it’s to make sure to at least not delete data.

Informed consent is good, but there could be better UX for it than endless identical-looking modal dialogs

Last year Core Data would spontaneously delete external binaries. Nightmare for us. Data is really the one thing you have to get right. You can fix UI glitches, but when data is gone, it’s really gone.

I still don't get why they don't just make a laptop form factor iPad, having to maintain macOS over two different processor architectures for probably quite a long time just doesn't seem like a good use of resources.

My favorite new example of a great cross platform app from Apple: Reality Composer. Sleeper hit of WWDC IMO. AppKit on Mac, UIKit on iPhone and iPad.

Mac app has more features. Or at least has finer-grained control.
