So what goodies did iOS 11 bring us? Paul Hudson has a great round up here and includes code samples for all of the major new features. There's also a nice list of minor points at the end of the article. We're going to have a busy summer!
Full disclosure, Paul is also this week's sponsor but that had no influence on this article being picked for inclusion in the newsletter. It was just a really good round up of all the developer features of iOS 11!
Xcode 9 has got to be one of the best Xcode releases in a while. So many great updates. A few of my favourites include refactoring across Swift, C, Objective-C, and C++ files, auto-detection of AppKit, UIKit, and WebKit method calls that are not made on the main thread, and of course, deployment over WiFi. The crazy thing is that these are only a few updates from a vast majority of improvements! For the entire line-up of features, check out the doc! 💻
What else did WWDC bring us? A huge set of changes to the App Store Review guidelines! 📖 Along with some quite shocking improvements like "Apps that provide a programming interface may now (in some cases) download and run code from the Internet." which I never thought we'd see! Unfortunately, some of the humour has also been removed, which is a shame. I'll take the new rules though!
