Apple’s second iOS 13 and iPadOS betas are now available to registered developers. They come exactly two weeks after the first beta builds and should eliminate some of the teething troubles testers have experienced so far.
Apple has been accused of violating its own App Store guidelines within the new Apple News app.
The Apple News+ signup page is missing a number of important elements that would lead the app to be rejected if it was made by a third-party developer. A former Apple developer says he is surprised the company hasn’t been hit with an “an extremely public lawsuit” for its double standards.
Apple plans to make it easy for developers to merge iOS and macOS apps into one by 2021, according to a new report.
The project, dubbed “Marzipan,” hopes to encourage development and boost App Store revenue. It will start with a new software development kit that will let developers port their iPad apps to Mac later this year.
Apple is launching a new Entrepreneur Camp that’s specifically designed to help app-driven organizations founded and led by women.
The two-week technology lab, which takes place in Apple’s home town of Cupertino, offers one-on-one coding guidance from Apple experts and engineers, as well as “mentorship, inspiration, and insights from top Apple leaders.”
Apple has removed 11 categories from the Mac App Store. The Categories tab now displays just 10 options as opposed to 21, with Finance, Lifestyle, and Sports among those dropped.
The move is a disappointment to app developers who rely on specific categories for discoverability. Many initially believed that the change was a bug, but Apple has since confirmed that the removal of these items is “expected behavior.”
Apple warns us that its beta releases should not be installed on our primary devices. Until just a few years ago, it only allowed registered developers to download them. But that doesn’t stop keen Apple fans from updating early to get their hands on its latest features.
You won’t believe how many people are already running the next versions of macOS, iOS, tvOS, watchOS months before their public debut.
