Peter Witham joins the show nearly 6 months after he was last on to talk about 2021 in the Swift and Apple space. Did WWDC and the new OSes meet expectations? What's the future of iPadOS? Where are the pain points with SwiftUI? What is the future for devs in the space as pressure mounts on Apple from outside governments and court cases?
