In 2015, Facebook said its excessive background usage was just a bug. “We’re looking into this and hope to have a fix soon.” I guess Apple was done waiting. https://t.co/HVTx5diuYL

Waiting at a Genius Bar, I heard a customer be told he can’t move his data to his new phone because he’s out of space on the free iCloud tier.

This is nuts. Why put friction on upgrading? Why ruin the unboxing? “Buy an iPhone, get a year of iCloud,” would cost Apple pennies.

I rewrote our watch app in Objective-C for Halide 1.10. By dropping the extra Swift libraries, we cut 15mb off our download size.

Twitter for Mac got off the ground mostly because so much of the codebase was reused from iOS. It absolutely suffered as it became difficult to share underlying code.

For example, the main codebase moved on to weak refs with ARC, but Mac couldn’t because of Snow Leopard support.
