Heads up. The Xcode 10.1 release notes changed overnight.

The Asset Catalog issue that used to start with:

“Resolves an issue that affected app compatibility with iOS 9.0, 9.1 and 9.2…”

Is now in the ‘Known Issues’ and therefore seems like is not resolved in Xcode 10.1.

If big download figures aren’t going to translate into sales, or even ad revenue, then freemium is just pointless for me. Especially as it makes occasional big sales through the volume purchase programme impossible as that only works with paid apps.

Figured it out.

The LG UltraFine 5K does NOT work with the iPad Pro. It only accepts Thunderbolt input, but the iPad Pro outputs 5K over USB-C as DisplayPort, not Thunderbolt.

A 5K display that supports DisplayPort input should work, but I don’t have one to test.

Are there any good MacBook vs MacBook Air comparisons out there? I'm struggling to understand why some people who don't like the MacBook are happy with the new Air. They seem very, very similar.

iPad external-screen support isn’t like Macs/PCs. You don’t just get more screen space.

You can either mirror the iPad on it, or SOME apps use it for custom purposes.

If you don’t have a specific app in mind that you know works with external screens, you don’t need one. https://t.co/zeNABy9QX3

Challenge: write a Swift extension for Sequence that destructures the sequence into head and tail, i.e. returns a tuple of the first element and the rest (or nil if the sequence is empty).

Make sure it works correctly with self-consuming sequences that can only be iterated once. pic.twitter.com/kc1cdjgs2i

Biggest worry answered, sounds like a Mini will indeed be my new Mac. (for travel too: Mini + portable monitor + keyboard comparable weight-wise to a 15" MBP, and you can check everything but the Mini without great fear of loss) https://t.co/VlOkPp9htR

The last two zips that I unzipped with Archive Utility unzipped without directories (cf screenshot). Using /usr/bin/unzip creates the directories as expected. Is this a new bug introduced with the last security update or was I just unlucky with two zips created on Windows? pic.twitter.com/OEY43oxBf6

Even so, Apple's trying to prove its own chips' capabilities in the face of Intel processors. The best way to do that is to give reviewers more RAM. Why else would they be seeding maxed-out review units? https://t.co/FM3cBo55cO

The level of ridiculousness we go to here at Shirt Pocket:

Current test: 1600 queued up automatic copies, all waiting their turn to run their scheduled copy.

That means 1600 simultaneous AppleEvent clients pounding the script interface.

Looking good so far…

Apple gave every reviewer maxed out iPad Pros but seemingly no one got given top spec Airs or Minis.

2/2 Also sandbox is technically expensive though importantly provides security—but at expense of battery life.

Assuming ARM does more than port OS but respects power mgmt of iOS, desktop in general is poor and sandboxe is really poor. Host doesn’t know what goes on in sandbox.

This was our debate on Windows.

The challenge is there isn’t really active/hardcore development on the desktop APIs (for either platform) so the pace to be in store would be SLOW to ZERO.

Also the economics need to be right. Apple would not do that (eg MS, Adobe).

1/2

Apple told me specifically that video out is USB-C and not Thunderbolt, so you can't drive Thunderbolt-based displays

It does. I verified with Apple that it indeed supports full 5K resolution, at 60 Hz, without any downscaling tricks or other quality reductions. https://t.co/Yk0SFXAETx

Unless, of course, you're pulling from the existing iOS app ecosystem to populate your new ARM desktop platform, and not the Mac developers. If Apple wants a legion of developers who already build sandboxed ARM App Store apps, it doesn't have to come from the Mac side… https://t.co/oT7NBWrssT

Also if you want all Mac Developers to switch over to ARM quickly, changing APIs and adding new barriers isn’t a good way to do that.
