I’m convinced this holds Apple back with recruitment or retention. They’re so on-site oriented, but in some ways remote work could be a great advertisement for them. “Our teams can build great stuff from anywhere in the world thanks to Apple’s products and services!”

If Apple wants to be this picky, they should either provide a pre-built UI component or specify EXACT wording that everyone has to use. The current situation punishes devs who are trying to be good citizens but can’t because of uneven enforcement and inconsistent requirements. https://t.co/UcQXiinjoj

The good argument that Tile should make is that Apple’s own apps like Find My should be subject to the same rules about asking users turn on persistent location access. Same goes for Apple apps that can currently bypass permissions for notifications, photos, etc. @gruber https://t.co/Hg4tyKtRmL

Props to @backblaze support for helping me debug a tricky problem across several days recently. They’re so affordable it would be easy for Backblaze to skimp out on support, but they stuck with the issue and made the process easy. 💯

What’s your take on RAM needs for iOS development? I ordered the 16GB i9 because the upgrade price to 32 feels 😱, but I’m starting to worry all those cores will chew through memory.

On a related note, you always seem to have a wealth of solutions for dealing with tricky Catalyst issues. Any resources you can point out for reference? I find myself running into walls, either because of unfamiliarity with AppKit or what’s possible with Catalyst.

Sure, but I think it’s undeniable that Catalyst fails to provide some basic affordances that would make it much easier to serve Mac users well. For instance, an easy way to present a UIKit view in a sheet, or a date picker control appropriate to the Mac.

This article seems deliberately obtuse. I doubt it’s possible to make something like AirPods with a replaceable battery without making them much larger.

A more honest take would be: “No company should make a battery-powered product this small.” https://t.co/oHoz4JPb0a

The FaceTime camera switching is SO BAD. Not only does it require extra taps to access, but you can’t see the “mirror” screen while flipping, so you can’t tell if it’s worked. Plus, the controls require a swipe to dismiss and it’s super easy to hit the End Call button instead. https://t.co/F2IycaquS5
