I usually write my comment for this newsletter on Wednesday or Thursday during the week, and this week was no different. Except, you’ll have to wait another week to read what I had drafted because Apple ruined my plans in the most glorious way, by releasing a set of new betas with ALL THE NEW THINGS yesterday!

There’s usually a few little features and API changes that don’t make it into the beta 1 releases, but yesterday’s versions felt significant and were full of surprises.

Whether you’re excited about the brand new macOS frameworks, the new redaction view modifiers, the fact that SwiftUI views now have built-in keyboard avoidance, or merely the re-designed System Preferences battery icon. There really was something for everyone. That’s not everything though, so check out the iOS, macOS, and Xcode release notes for the full details. 🚀

Oh, and if you’ve been cooking something up for September, as long as it's not an App Clip, the TestFlight gates opened yesterday too, so get your builds uploaded!
