Putting the call out for software engineering interns who are interested in joining the team at Apple next year.

Knowledge of C / Swift / iOS dev would be helpful but not required.

If you are entering 3rd or 4th year please DM me if interested!

Happy Monday, everyone! Reminder that the iOS team has 3 open roles!! Note that one does not require heavy programming as it's a triage role. This role is still technical and there may be some scripting and reading crash logs!

I think folks are always disappointed when they ask me: “how do you organize your time/tasks? What apps?!” And I just point to a ratty journal and iCal. Productivity tools can be amazing, but only if they work for you. For me, it’s always been pen/paper/calendar. 🤷🏻‍♀️

This might be one of my favorite features from our team this year - controlling an iOS device with sounds!

RT @iansride2016@twitter.com

Big thanks to @Apple@twitter.com for offering Sound Actions for Switch Control in iOS 15. Once again, technology providing independence, I can now use my phone when voiceless and on the ventilator!

Sound on!

When an app has a "steep learning curve," this can be something to flag as an concern. Onboarding/education are often an aspect of accessibility, particular cognitive accessibility. It's not just about "can" someone use your app, but also how do they learn to?

Sometimes I think the gatekeepers don’t realize that I’m already inside.

Ok hands down best part about my M1 Mac is that I can use it while wearing shorts. ☀️

I know I mostly tweet about iOS , but MacOS has some incredible features too! Check out Head Pointer!

RT @TheSwitchMaster@twitter.com

Head Pointer is a new macOS accessibility feature. Here’s how to set it up! youtube.com/watch?v=NL0x-b6zZ8

SPOILER: You don’t need to buy any special hardware or put stickers on your face. :)

New features are a great reason to check out the iOS 15 betas!

RT @JordanMorgan10@twitter.com

Here’s a cool tip for testing - I’m not sure when it was added but you can specify *per app* accessibility defaults such as Dynamic Type size, bolder text and more.

This is great, and I can see myself enabling a lot of these for my own apps for efficient testing.

Thanks to everyone who empathized, checked on me and shared. I did of course contact security, and I sincerely hope this doesn’t happen again. I’ve blocked this person, and I hope this is all over.

I don’t know who chose to do this, so I can’t think of another way to say this so it might reach them:

If you know me or have access to my info via work, do not *ever* give away my contact info without my permission (mine or probably anyone’s...). It’s not ok.

TIL: On Mac, you can do ⌘+T to bring up your Tapback responses in Messages and then you can use the number keys, 1-6, to select your reaction. 🤯 Get ready for lots of ❤️ and 👍🏻 everyone…

This is something I struggle with massively. In my group managers are expected to code significantly, in addition to being managers. Every day I have to remind myself I’m a manager FIRST and then a programmer, but as my queue grows it’s really hard to feel I’m working “enough.”

I need to get out of this useless mindset that putting up a PR is the only thing that counts toward productivity
