Weekend good reads for Android developers, issue #39 (38/2022)

The weekend is in progress but we are sharing some interesting articles with you:

How to automate your UI testing using Maestro

UI testing is usually ignored. The main reason why it is like that is the complexity of most of test frameworks. The Maestro library changes the way you think about UI testing and in my opinion can be considered as great tool.

Type modelling in Kotlin
Jan Mostert shares several examples of how using Kotlin features can help better model data and errors in your code.

Writing your own CoroutineContext Element

How to pause a coroutine

How to break a coroutine cancellation

As you can see Vasiliy Nikitin created series of blogposts about coroutines which I strongly recommend to review.

Web3 Series: Intro for developers

The first blog of the Web3.0 series from me so if you are interested in NFT, DeFi, Web3 it can be for you.

Thats all for this weekend, have a nice one!

iOS 16 adoption is better than iOS 15 was

Mixpanel report provides iOS 16 adoption numbers – more than 25% on September 23. This adoption rate is an improvement compared to iOS 15 adoption last year.

10 days after launch in 2021, iOS 15 was installed on just 19.3 percent of devices, as ‌iPhone‌ owners at the time seemed more reluctant to upgrade due to some early bugs. ‌iOS 16‌ may also be more appealing because of the visual changes that it introduces.

Weekend good reads for Apple developers, issue #43

While we’re in the midst between iOS and iPadOS releases, we have couple of things to read during the release.

And that is it. Have some rest, probably play with new shiny Apple Watch Ultra and come over next weekend for new articles.

New updates are available for iOS and watchOS

Apple releases iOS 16.0.2 and watchOS 9.0.1 for Apple Watch Ultra.

iOS 16.0.2 fixes several issues found recently:

  • Camera may vibrate and cause blurry photos when shooting with some third-party apps on iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max
  • Display may appear completely black during device setup
  • Copy and paste between apps may cause a permission prompt to appear more than expected
  • VoiceOver may be unavailable after rebooting
  • Addresses an issue where touch input was unresponsive on some iPhone X, iPhone XR, and iPhone 11 displays after being serviced

Updates also resolve couple of security issues. Apple does not disclose the details though.
