1) External sites are loaded via SFViewController! So authentication flows and still work without leaving the PWA.

2) State is maintained if it goes in the background. A bit buggy though, but promising

3) A hell of a lot more experimental features! Web Auth, Web Animations, WebMetal(?), pointer events, intersection observer...

And service workers see to be removed from the experiments list. Enabled by default!

Yeah, Wkwebview/SFViewController has removed media methods. I reported it here a while back. But works in Safari proper.

I opened this thread just to confirm that Apple will never implement push notifications. 🤣

¯\_(ツ)_/¯ You know, the more I think about it...the more I'm ok with this. Notifications are a pain to setup and I sure as hell hate getting them.

Agree, but without them there is no hope for building things like chat, reminders, etc

A lot of live scenarios are useful even without notifications if they allow you to be connected to websockets in the background for a reasonable time (say, 5 minutes) while PWD is backgrounded. Use email to notify after that. Can be a simple and useful architecture.

Nobody wants notifications in their email. There are a lot of scenario's where you want normal push notifications. Apple is far behind here.

A few more indeed! No manifest updates sadly, though this is only beta 1. Still very hopeful. It seems feedback does not go unheard.

Confirming, no manifest updates. I have a little test app, and it’s still the same: .
