“andrew in hr wants to know if you’ve read this email so he can judge when to start applying the threat of professional penalty for you not responding quickly enough”

Um. I updated Tweetbot 2 yesterday and now right-clicking the Like button to choose which account to like from doesn’t work anymore?
“we’re going to make iOS 12 even faster”

Live image detection with iOS 12 & ARKit 2. Display digital information attached to physical objects. Feels like playing in the future ✨ #arkit #ios12

Custom emoji fonts are also supported in iOS 12 beta 2
(here a UILabel using Adobe EmojiOne Color)
