Design Tools News #37
By Roy  • Issue #37 • View online
Apple’s yearly developers conference was last week, and it was for the first time completely online. There were some cool announcements like the switch to ARM processors for Mac, enabling a much smoother way to develop apps across all of Apple’s platforms in the future. But as a fan of all things SwiftUI, I was delighted to see great updates there as well! You can catch up on some cool in-depth sessions ranging from the new iOS widgets, to designing for the iPads pointer capabilities. The quality of the entire production of the conference was off the charts, and I’d recommend you to check out the highlights!
To follow along with what is capable in the latest SwiftUI, I’d recommend you to follow Meng To, Paul Hudson, and Jordan Singer on Twitter. Jordan shares a lot of code examples, and writes a great newsletter on the things he builds. If you’re really into learning SwiftUI, I also recommend checking out Hacking with Swift by Paul.
Of course there was more happening besides WWDC… I’ve selected another 6 resources for you to check out!
