Open Radar FB9332199: Linking Swift Package from the main application emits error about linking to APIs not safe for use in application extensions

Apple Feedback

This is expected; you must either annotate methods using unavailable app extension APIs as @available(iOSApplicationExtension, unavailable), or in this specific case, use view controller based solutions instead, such as changing:

guard let orientation = else { return }


guard let orientation = view.window?.windowScene?.interfaceOrientation else { return }

Open Radar 9993340: App Sandbox and Serial Ports

solution that works for us

we had similar issue and were rejected from MacAppStore with temporary exception. To solve we used IOKit to detect USB device, then we were able to access that device using '/dev/cu.usbmodem.../' path.

Open Radar FB9230529: EKAlarm.init(absoluteDate date: Date) doesn't work with Exchange

my reply

Thanks, where are the specs for Exchange and absolute date alarms not being supported? Would be nice if it was part of API docs of EKAlarm.

1.IOS 14.6 and free Outlook account ( I'm unable to check Exchange version in OWA. This issue was first reported half a year ago. So, it's unlikely related to latest IOS and Exchange versions. 2.Changing in code. The absolute date alarm is not present in event (new or existing). Pls check attached for actual code. 3.Pls find sysdiagnose attached.

Open Radar FB9230529: EKAlarm.init(absoluteDate date: Date) doesn't work with Exchange

From Apple

Thanks for contacting us. We need additional information.

Our understanding is that Exchange does not support absolute date alarms; it only supports relative alarms. The behavior you are observing when you create the event is expected.

We would like more information about the subsequent syncing failures that you are observing: 1. What versions of Exchange and iOS are you observing this on? 2. How, exactly, are you attempting to further update the event? Are you changing it in the Calendar app, or are you changing it in your code? If you are changing it in your code, is the absolute date alarm still present on your version of the event? 3. Could you please provide us with logs from when the syncing fails? Please provide a sysdiagnose.

Please update your feedback report to provide the additional information. Thank you.

Directions for all sysdiagnose logging, screen recording and profiles:

Open Radar FB9212707: Xcode Cloud workflow screen not showing my other app target

I hit enter prematurely. The description of the bug: I have a workspace and project with two app targets, MyApp and MyAppLite, when I choose Product > Xcode Cloud > Create Workflow… it only shows the MyAppLite target. Apple has gotten back to me and I have provided more information for them.

Open Radar FB9224153: “Connect to Server” accepts FTPS URLs but actually connects via plain FTP w/o telling the user!

Added this as a Q & A (with screenshots) at to warn other users too

Beware: macOS Finder “Connect to Server” accepts FTPS URLs (FTP in a SSL/TLS tunnel) but actually connects via plain FTP!

Follow-up on the fixes

Many thanks for addressing this!

I confirm that a few (around 5-7) cases that I had with complex SwiftUI code or complex arithmetic expressions have been fixed. However, the following case still doesn't compile in Xcode 13 beta 2:

Let me know if you rather want a separate radar report for this case.

Open Radar FB9190672: iOS 15 SwiftUI AttributedString with Markdown doesn't render line spaces

My response to Apple

Thank you so much for getting back to me. I’ve tried this approach in Xcode 13 beta 2 without any success. I’ve included an updated Sample project. Am I still doing this wrong?

The options I am passing in are this:

AttributedString.MarkdownParsingOptions(interpretedSyntax: .inlineOnlyPreservingWhitespace)

Thank you! Ryan

Open Radar FB9190672: iOS 15 SwiftUI AttributedString with Markdown doesn't render line spaces

Response from Apple

The difference in behavior you are experiencing is expected. The AttributedString(markdown:) initializer applies semantic attributes to ranges of text, it does not insert any additional characters to “render” the text. According to the CommonMark specification that we are following here, the AttributedString created with the markdown initializer does not contain newline characters and instead contains separate paragraph attributes denoting the start and end of paragraphs. On the contrary, SwiftUI’s Text view uses the MarkdownParsingOptions.InterpretedSyntax.inlineOnlyPreservingWhitespace option when parsing text input as markdown, causing all whitespace characters (including newlines) to be preserved in the output. If you were to use the .inlineOnlyPreservingWhitespace option, the whitespace in their AttributedString would be preserved in the same way that Text preserves whitespace.

Open Radar FB7582188: Add Setting to Disable Custom Authentication UI on Apple Websites

I agree with this. I work in a retail store where we share store computers at the registers and utilize apples website for various things. Having it ask for the local password only to offer logging in with the wrong account is very annoying and wastes time.

Open Radar 30104132: Communication between iPhone and Apple Watch breaks down occasionally

4 years later, still broken

In 2021 I am still battling this problem on a daily basis. Sometimes it works, sometimes like today I have to troubleshoot for literally 3 hours before it starts working again

Probably not a bug on Apple's side since they refuse to admit it, it's most likely a feature.

Thank you for your reply. It is possible we were unaware of the workaround when the release notes were posted. Via Feedback Assistant, we kindly ask that you file a separate feedback against the documentation, asking that the workaround be properly documented.
