Mobile Development Digest #40


I’ve been sick last week and had too weak to write a digest. However, it was important week for iOS developers. Bunch of updates were released, starting from iPhone 7, Watch Series 2, iOS and TVOS 10 (Read 16 pages comparison of iOS 10 and iOS 9). New Swift 3.0 and XCode… This time developers were under high pressure, I think. SceneKit editor is crashing all the time for me.

Anyway, the week after the update iOS 10 adoption is 30% due to Mixpanel. Really good. Let’s see when it will hit 90% (new year?). Apple doing well to increase it. Frontpage of AppStore is full of iOS10 apps.

It was quite easy to miss big update on GitHub because of this. If you use GitHub you would be surprised with huge and solid changes in GIT tools.
