WWDC Index: Lookup every WWDC talk since 2000

Hey fellow iOS devs! My co-founder and I recently launched a resource that I think many of you will find useful: WWDC Index It's a comprehensive index of every WWDC talk since 2000, making it easier than ever to find and watch sessions on any topic. Some key features:Complete Archive: Look up every WWDC talk from 2000 onwards. Unlisted Talks: If Apple has unlisted a session from their developer site but still hosts the video, we provide you with the stream link to watch it. * List of major announcements: With each WWDC we list the major things released on the homepage, making it easy to figure out what was introduces when. We’re also working on creating “topic” pages where we collect all talks around a certain topic, and we’d love your input! What are your all-time favorite WWDC talks? Which sessions do you find yourself revisiting? Your feedback will help us curate these topic pages to be as useful as possible. Check it out here: WWDC Index and let us know what you think. Happy coding!

MacBook Air for coding

Hi! I would like to gift a friend a MacBook Air for his birthday. He’s a software engineer student and currently has a PC. This would be his very first Apple product and I’d like help some feedback on choosing which MacBook Air would be best for coding. MacBook Air 8GB Unified Memory 256 SSD Storage or MacBook Air 16GB Unified Memory 256 SSD Storage For more complex coding assignments I’m absolutely positive he’ll use his PC. He’s just expressed interest in Apple and iOS, so I’m sure it would be simple coding on the MacBook Air. Thank you for the help!

Very High "Billing Retry" State For Subscriptions

I have an app that gets about 200 subscription starts daily. Most of my traffic comes from Apple Search Ads. I have a 3 day free trial and at the end of the 3 days I typically have about 10 conversions to paid. The strange thing is I get about 50 users entering "Billing Retry" state. I understand what this is for but that rate seems very high. I do see a few conversions from billing retry sprinkled in (1 or 2 a day) but I feel like I am really wasting money on Search Ads if 25% of my "conversions" can't be billed for some reason. Does anyone have any experience with this? Could it be user demographics? I do not set any demographic restrictions on my ads but thinking I might try Age related to get more users who have valid payment?

Information for App Store submit

Hi, My app only allows signing in with Apple Sign In, but App Store Connect is requiring I provide an existing account to test the app. Does this mean I have to provide an email and password flow?

Use sports teams names only in app?

I’m working on a social media, Reddit-type app for sports and planning on using all the major North American sports teams. Would it be copyright infringement to just use the team names, no logos or player names, as basis of pages in the app? It’s basically like subreddits, and obviously the subreddits here are labeled with the team names. I know logos is a no-go but I’m wondering if just names would be okay?

Cocoa Pods Keys

Question regarding roles on Apple developer account

Hi all, Quick question regarding giving someone access to our developer account. We are working with a freelancer to deploy/ build an app on our Dev Account. He has requested an Admin role, but this seems like too much access to me? I feel like he can achieve the task by being a App Manager. He has stated: "Thanks for providing access to Apple Developer Account! To deploy the iOS build to a real device for testing, I'll need access to the developer tools like certificates and provisioning profiles.Could you please grant me Admin access within the Apple Developer Account? This would allow me to easily add these profiles to my Xcode and deploy the build directly for you." Is App Manager enough or is it ok to assign a freelancer an Admin role? Thanks a lot for your input on this as I am having a hard time finding a correct answer!
