From 9To5Mac: iOS 14 was announced with some great new features for iMessage, including more options for group conversations, inline replies, and more. However, there’s also an important change in iMessage that Apple hasn’t mentioned so far. The company has adopted a new security system called “BlastDoor,” which is basically a sandbox mode that protects […]
This is sad. On the one hand, it’s the right move to respect the developers’ wishes (particularly of small, independent apps). For a single-person developed application this feature could have a material impact on their bottom-line revenue over time. On the other, this was a killer feature of the M1 Macs.

If the event next week is about Apple Silicon, I can’t believe they didn’t go with this. pic.twitter.com/pvLqHw7UHg — James Thomson (@jamesthomson) November 3, 2020 Brilliant.
This article from 9to5Mac had me thinking: The company has reportedly introduced mandatory overtime for workers, and employees have been asked to forgo the eight-day national holiday beginning on October 1 … Sounds…not great, by American standards. On the other hand: One worker said some are happy to comply with the stringent iPhone 12 production […]
