iPhone Security Bug Fallout
Charlie Miller demonstrates how not to handle the discovery of a bug like this and was unfortunately removed from the developer programme for it. I am of the opinion that it is almost never a good idea to annoy Apple by making a big public splash with something like this and I am sure this situation would have ended differently if he had approached them first.
Why you should almost always write a test app for your Radar bug reports
Solid gold advice here from Peter Hosey. Just extracting what may seem like a buggy piece of code away from all of the complexities that surround it can often get you quickly to the bottom of an issue, and hey if you find it really is a bug then you have a ready made test project ready to submit to Apple.
The Xcode 4.2 Review
Martin Pilkington is making a habit of these Xcode review posts but they are always a great way to be sure you didn't miss anything with the latest release.
iOS 5 Tech Talk: Allan Schaffer on OpenGL ES with GLKit
I was not lucky enough to get a ticket to the Tech Talk in London this time around so thanks to Ole Bergman for writing up not only the GLKit session by Allan Schaffer but also the iCloud session from Michael Jurewitz and the UI design session by Mark Kawano. I linked to the GLKit post here but just browse around the site for the other two.
Using URL Schemes To Open The Settings App To A Specific Page In iOS 5
I was idly asking for this just a couple of weeks ago and ended up filing a radar on it, little did I know that it was already implemented and that all it needed was someone to notice. It will be interesting to see if this gets documented and/or if apps using it will get through review.
Scrapbook of an Advanced Core Animation View
Drew McCormack talking about creating the card flip control in version 2 of his excellent Mental Case study app. I think it was just last week I said how much I love articles which dig into the evolution of a feature and this is another great example of exactly that.
I think the internet is punishing me for so boldly stating that I always have enough links for iOS Dev Weekly by hiding them all from me this week. I hope you still enjoy this slightly lighter weight issue. :)Dave Verwer
