Summary (IA Generated)

Apple’s September event held virtually yesterday didn’t have too many surprises for customers.

However, the company announced that its iOS 14 and iPadOS 14 will start rolling out from the very next day.

This caught third-party app developers off-guard, as they usually have at least a week’s time to prepare their apps to be compatible with the latest versions of those platforms, after Apple’s marquee event.

After Apple announces its iPhones, it releases Xcode and iOS’ “Golden Master” version (the one that will ship to customers), so that developers can tune their apps for when customers get the latest mobile operating system.

Last year, iOS 13 rolled out almost 10 days after the iPhone event, allowing devs a decent amount of time to get their apps ready.

Oh boy…that is quite a bit soon than I was expecting…hoping for.

It’s understandable that creators want to push their apps on the release day of the OS, so they can attract more downloads.

Developers were not able to build their apps properly and multiple Xcode GM versions released in one night caused a lot of confusion.

The Xcode SDK might be ready for iOS 14 tomorrow, but App Store Connect isn’t 🤦‍♂️ https://t.

Apple squashed some of these problems, but all of these could’ve been avoided if the company gave enough time for developers to prepare.

More soon.

It is 10PM UK time; iOS 14 launches tomorrow.

App Review can be anywhere from an hour to several days.

This is a whole lot of unnecessary stress on developers in an otherwise stressful year https://t.

Developer James Thompson thinks that Apple didn’t want to release the Golden Master version because it might’ve revealed some details about the products company launched yesterday.

My conspiracy theory is that iOS 14 has been GM for at least a week, and engineering wanted to release it to developers back then, but marketing didn’t want it revealing anything about the new products.

Every iOS developer: 😐.

Even if this was the case, Apple could’ve delayed the rollout for iOS and iPadOS by a few days to give developers some breathing room.

We asked the company to provide details on why it decided to release new OS versions without any notice to developers, and we’ll update the story if we hear back.
