Go Go Go! Submission for both iOS 12 and macOS Mojave apps has been activated with the Xcode 10 GM release that came directly after Wednesday's event. I can not wait for all the new Siri activities that will probably start showing with these updates! 🤖
It appears that it is not possible to submit apps that include the new Complication APIs, but who is mad enough for them to complete just a few hours after they were announced? 🤔
I do not want to talk much about the new hardware that you undoubtedly have read a million words on it already. All I want to say is that as someone who has started taking my health even more seriously in the past year, the new clock was what stood out for me. The overall improvements are amazing, and AFib detection and ECG are incredible features. The AFib detection is also a good example of how something we first looked like a ResearchKit project has now entered the core system. This is amazing work from Apple, and I still think HealthKit has great potential to change the world of medicine even longer. I hope they get the necessary approvals to roll out these features outside of the US itself! I'm lucky my heart is doing for now, but I still want to keep an eye on it!
I had no hesitation in ordering a new clock (and phone!) Like the previous options opened this morning, although it was from a slightly unusual location. 😂
Apple Tech Talks ̵
1; iPhone XS, XS Max, XR and Apple Watch Series 4
As always, new hardware brings together new APIs, and this year there's nothing else . There are some new videos available on the developer's video page. Take a look at Building Apps for iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max and iPhone XR, Design for Apple Watch Series 4, and Develop Complications for Apple Watch Series 4.
Future of Fabric
This is not a "Not surprisingly, I've been waiting for an announcement since the acquisition last year. The bad news is that Firebase is now a necessary addiction if you want to continue using Crashlytics and that some other features in Fabric are gone. It's not that Firebase It's bad, far from it! You even get more features when you make the switch, but it's a big addiction if you used to just used Crashlytics.

Exit CacaoPods Warnings
I've never been a big fan of disabling all cautions when importing a CocoaPod so I was interested in seeing this little hack from Artur Grigor that allows specific warnings to be turned off for a pod. Of course, a better solution to this is to fix the warnings in the pods you use and submit drawer requests! 🛠
How Apps Customize to Series 4 Apple Watch Screen Sizes
Geoff Hackworth was fast out of the port with this post with all you need to know about the new clock sizes. He also has a similar post for the new iPhone models. Thanks Geoff!
What I Learned To Create 5 ARKit Prototypes
I talked about some of Nathan Gitter's ARKit prototypes back in Edition 362, so I was happy to read this recipe of his experience of build them. Some of these are really interesting experiments, and the all have value.
Is CMMotion Activity getting a "falling" state after this week's announcements? Probably not, but it has states for many other classes of motion like cycling, walking, running and traveling in a vehicle. Mat Thompson provides the NSHipster treatment.
Build a form library
After last week's link to DataSourceKit, this week, more talk about explanatory table views with this post from Chris Eidhof and Florian Kugler. The position is great, but it's also more than four hours of video to accompany. Comprehensive!
Increase the Pressure Area of a UIButton
More follow-up, this time it's Roland Leth that follows up on last week's post on overall hit. In this post, he talks about a clean way to increase the scarce area of a button.  rolandleth.com
iPhone Device Templates
Before the main theme was completed, these devices were hit for New iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max devices were made available. It takes some time for the official marketing images to be released, so this is perfect for getting everything up to date with the latest devices. There is also an iPhone XR version available if you want some color!
How big is Apple Watch Series 4?
A fun set of pictures that shows how the size of the new clock and the New Screen has changed with this iteration. I think this is a particularly good look at how the huge increase in screen size only makes a small difference to the clock size.
Business and Marketing
Most Apps Are Free
Only if you were in doubt about Apple watching the future of paid apps on iOS, here's a Reminder from the bottom of the iPhone XS marketing page. Also this week, Apple published a case study video about subscribing prize. They send a fairly clear and consistent message about what they want us to do at the moment.
