"Starting March 27, 2019, all new apps and app updates for iPhone or iPad, including universal apps, must be built with the iOS 12.1 SDK or later and support iPhone XS Max or the 12.9-inch iPad Pro (3rd generation). " developer.apple.com/news/?id=0

@tonyarnold 😂 My projects are mostly Swift now and then I got a job that only uses Swift, so I haven't written much Objective-C since like 2017. Didn't set it out to go this way, but my current job being nothing but Swift pushed me in this direction

Apple is doing spec bumps on Mac hardware again? I'm being filled with something, it's like despair but opposite.

@tonyarnold I really hope spm support in xcode is such that we largely can eliminate needing to use cocoapods. I'm fortunate that I've never needed to touch cocoapods in a while. The last few times I touched it, every projects build system was majorly broken because of it.

@GeekAndDad I think I’ll go with the Apache 2 license. It’s mentioned as having similar qualities as the Blue Oak license, but it’s already an established OSI approved license and Github has support for it built in already (I believe)

YouTube: we allow you to block channels now

Also YouTube: but those blocked channels will still show up on tending, searches, etc so really you're just blocking the channel from the home screen listing

Well written case for why you should stop using MIT & BSD licenses and switch to licenses like Apache 2 d.pr/mbs1Q3

Current earworm. I thought the music on the Mortal Kombat 11 story trailer sounded a little like Eminem, turns out it's not him itunes.apple.com/us/album/war-

If we are ever going to transition to usb-c I think this is the way to do it. Include a usb-c cable and an adapter for usb-a. Simple and over time the small adapter will get cheap and easy to make

If iOS 13 does adopt dark mode, the one thing I hope that fixes is apps launching with a start screen that doesn't match the UI (ie a light startup screen on a dark themed app)

Notices lights flashing like crazy on router
Me: What in the world? Nothing should be making that much traffic right now
Turns off TV which isn’t playing anything. Lights stop.
Me: Good thing I blocked the TV’s internet access.

Does Apples usb-c charger cable for MacBook Pro's work well with other usb-c devices? like say Sony WH1000XM3 headphones?

@Theudric1 not just for the privacy part, but in general I'd feel a lot better about a swiping keyboard that was built by someone like ddg

I didn't set out to switch from Google to @DuckDuckGo , but now that I have, I kinda wish they'd make an equivalent swiping keyboard to replace Gboard

Various people asked me about my language learning research recently. 2 interesting concepts that came up in my research was Comprehensible Input and TPRS. This video goes into both topics d.pr/EMiypp

When you show a coworker Xcode misaligning text that they never noticed before

@stevestreza these days I'm using Privacy Badger and uBlock Origin, I think those stop tracking quite well. Though I appreciate this, because far more people will see this and install it as Firefox users are exactly the right type of people to show this message to.
