Build iOS 7 Apps with Xcode 8

If you, like me, wanted all the new bells and whistles in Xcode 8 and realized too late, that the latest officially supported iOS Version of Xcode 8 is iOS 8 and you need support for the iPhone 4 or iPad mini (both run on iOS 7) in one app, here are the good news: You don’t have to go back to Xcode 7 – we built and released a working App for iOS 7 with Xcode 8.

I’m sorry

I’m sorry. My last conversation with you dates back to 2012. By the time I didn’t know it would be the conversation to stay for four years. I could have known, I hear you say, our last encounter adds two years on top. And I know what you think… He’s coming back, after years, asking for forgiveness and I should welcome him like I did the years before, when everything was good.… As if nothing had ever happened!

It must feel like a bad excuse to tell you, the same happened to everyone else in my life. To twitter, to facebook, to instagram, to you, my dear blog. I hope you pragmatically recognized, that I always kept your files and folders up-to-date and replaced plugins with the newest versions, with some shiny finesse under the hood. I really thought a lot of you, logged in and out, tried to publish something, but I never really found the time.

I hope I can regain some of your trust and support in the foreseeable future by working hard on our relationship and spending some quality content with you.

Thank you, dear Blog!
