This is unexpectedly the most stressful podcast I’ve listened to in a while. Will Marco survive until the end…<dun, dun, dun/>

It’s been on my list for a while, there are some changes in iOS 12 that make it likely for this fall…so stay tuned

Sorry about that my host had a major power outage last night. Should be all normal again now

Whoops, I thought I’d caught all those. Thanks for letting me know, I’ll get it fixed

Just stumbled across the line of documentation that lets me close my oldest known bug (existing since iOS 7). “For transfers started while your app is in the background, the system always starts transfers at its discretion” I guess I should have read the manual. 😔

Yup, I don’t know why it isn’t just a switch rather than this weird stateful button…or at least they should use the same sounds as AirPods for consistency.

While I love AirPods for around the house, I gotta say I’m loving BeatsX for walking around a noisy city. Their passive isolation is great and having inline controls is a welcome bonus.

These graphs of average street intersection direction from around the world are absolutely delightful.

That is an interesting theory. It always seemed odd because nothing obvious had changed but I do wonder if it gets tighter as I go

Anyone know what causes my Apple Watch heart rate data from running workouts to have this weird drop off half way through. The second half seems accurate but first section always super high.

I believe there is a bug in there right now that hides this for some reason. That is actually the very next thing I’m going to be working today.

I think my favorite kind of work is the impossibly detailed kind. Today was ensuring that if a bar hasn’t quite reached the goal line that there is always a tiny bit whitespace above it.

Didn’t want to travel on a beta? Or just finally cracked

It is amazing how much muscle memory there is in programming. Today was the first time I’ve opened Xcode in a while because of travel. It was initially really hard to get going again cognitively but my hands seemed to know what to do until my mind caught up.

That means that there is no email account registered with the system so I can’t pop open an email compose sheet.

My thanks to all the Apple engineers and staff who clearly put so much thoughtful work into making this WWDC so great. It is clear that an week this polished and rich doesn’t happen by accident. Thank you!

Bugs and issues are in my experience always given attention, but I mean more things like developer enhancements and improvements to the new APIs. Once they get finalized this fall it much harder to get movement than in the next few weeks.
