Designing for the iPhone X

Last Tuesday Apple released their new (and expensive) iPhone X. The new phone has an “edge-less” display- something designers have been dreaming about for years! A phone where the actual device gets out of the way of the content you are consuming. It seems pretty magical. So the big question for designers is how will design change with the new, larger display?

An iOS Developer's Review of the Most Exciting WWDC Tech

This year, Metova sent me to WWDC to get an early first-hand look at all the new upcoming technologies Apple is releasing. This was my first time attending WWDC, and it did not disappoint. Essentially, every rumoured announcement you could find on the internet actually was delivered along with multiple other exciting big ticket items. To top it all off, Tim Cook surprised us all at the end of the keynote by informing everyone that a moderated conversation with Michelle Obama would be the first session to kick off day two. Not bad, right?

How To Update an iOS Project to Use rbenv for Ruby Version Management

As an iOS mobile developer, you may think you don't need to manage Ruby versions in your project. Many iOS projects use CocoaPods which is a Ruby gem. Some projects may even use other Ruby gems such as fastlane for automating your deployment pipeline, or slather for reporting code coverage results. Here at Metova, we use bundler to manage our gem versions, but it's also important to manage your Ruby version as well. Sometimes some of the gems used for your project may have known bugs with specific Ruby versions that haven't been fixed yet or they only support specific Ruby versions. When you manage your Ruby version, you can take more control over your environment. By doing this, you'll know that if everything works on your machine, it will work on other machines too.
