what’s being announced today?
Developer conference is typically new OS developments I believe.
iOS 14 is the biggie, I believe.
NVM. Fired right up this morning. Can't kill this thing.
Kinda hope Apple keeps this format for WWDC and other announcements. The production is pretty slick and it not being live in front of an audience is so much better, imo.
I’m excited about the iOS changes.
betas going on all the devices. hope it isn't too buggy
They already released the public betas?
iOS 14, macOS 11 Big Sur, and tvOS 14 public betas available in July. developer betas are all available today iirc
Don’t download the dev beta.
I’m quite excited for the iOS 14 updates tho. Seems like a lot of QOL updates that it’s been lacking for a looooong time.
Don’t you have to pay to have a developer account?
I go to the dev betas to test our apps.
I recommend waiting on the public betas for general use.
If anyone wants to test the dev beta DM me and I’ll send you the profile (again, expect bugs/crashes)
Not just bug and crashes but bricking your device. It really shouldn’t be ran on a person’s primary personal device
Looks like Apple really wants me to drop some money on that Mac Mini since my Macbook Pro is not eligible for the Big Sur update
You can run a patch and install it. Will probably be fine.
Me and my team have run dev betas on hundreds of devices and have never bricked one.
What is this wizardry you speak of?
I can't fucking wait to get this public beta of iOS 14. It literally adds several things I miss from Android, widgets alongside icons, emoji search, call notification doesn't take up the whole god damn screen, setting default browser and email app.
Actually I'm hoping I can hold off to get a new Mac now that I see they are going to be using with their own chips. Going to take that Mac game up a whole new level when that happens, assuming they do as well compared to the competition as their mobile chips do.
Doesn’t mean it doesn’t happen. Supposedly the Apple Watch OS beta is bricking devices* atm.
* at an unknown, to me, rate
Oh boy this is a game changer for the future Macs with Apple chips
Macs with new Apple-built chips will natively run iPhone and iPad apps
Not really. Catalyst has largely been uneventful since launching. This is all part of a much longer road map of somehow making a unified Apple OS.
Oh for sure. Sorry didn’t mean to come off as disagreeing. I just think the risk is really low.
I just hope my 2012 MacBook Pro can last up to two more years. Need this baby to hold on until them Apple processors get in the computers I'll be deciding between. If I ever get to go back to work in the office it won't be a big deal. I don't use my laptop nearly as much as I used to but I'm not paying for a damn Windows machine anymore unless I don't have any other financial choice.
But this native support is different from Catalyst. With catalyst it sounds like developers might have had to rewrite some code before they could port it over. With this, they'll be able to port it without having to rewrite anything.
iOS developers aren’t writing code close enough to the metal to truly care if it is x86 or ARM. Apple is pushing them to languages that obfuscate that difference away. Just because the ARM Macs can run ARM iOS instruction sets natively doesn’t mean that the market demand is there for developers to want to port or write apps for the Mac.
Hell there’s nothing stopping them from doing it now and the Mac landscape has been pretty lacking for many years compared to iOS.
The biggest impact that this ARM transition will have is on enterprise type software like adobe CS and things like machine virtualization.
Take it to the dorks thread
this IS the dorks thread.
Sorry. The nerds thread
I know some of those words
Hopefully I can create my own folders in the app library or that is going to be fucking useless
Maybe do some learning about your new ecosystem
I’m not a developer so I’m not going to learn that developer mumbo jumbo
Nandor the Relentless i listened to a podcast today from people who know a lot more about Mac/iOS development than me and they think the running iOS apps natively is a big deal so I was wrong.
Anyway you can track down your airpods?
Lost or someone stole my AirPod Pro’s
I think u can do it thru ur find your iPhone app, and u can make it do a noise too I think
That only works if the AirPods are within Bluetooth range of your phone and they’re on, which is like 5% of the time when you’re actually trying to find them.
so looks like I’ll have to buy another
Got the public iOS 14 beta. App library is dumb as shit, can't even organize the apps how you want. It's either use how Apple shittily deems the apps should be organized or don't use it at all. Such a wasted opportunity.
And the Smart Stack widget that seemed so nice, at least so far, only works with the widgets for some Apple's built-in apps, not even all of them, just some. Hopefully that changes or the appeal of it is going to be seriously hampered.
App stack is a little nicer than I originally thought. It doesn’t indicate anywhere that the biggest widgets that take up three rows can be added in a stack. Also, you can create your own stack manually by adding widgets and dragging them over another same sized widget. When you add an app stack from the widget panel it only gives you two sizes but there are three size possibilities, and nowhere did it indicate you could drag widgets over top another to make your own stack. Not a particularly well thought out implementation, should have provided a tutorial of some sort.
The App Library, definitely does not appear to be any customization to that. So dumb.
Podcast app changed and I do not like how it is organized. I liked the listen now grouping by show.
Trying a stack in place of some app icons.
Really like the ability to ditch the folders full of app icons that I didn’t want on the Home Screen with the app center thing. Welcome to always on Android, I guess.
Everyone should ditch the default Podcast app and use Overcast instead.
I like Pocket Casts.
Fuck my mom all you want, you’ll never be my dad. I don’t have to listen to you.
I used to use Downcast but now use Overcast - much better, IMO
