Handling iOS 13 and Android 10 and Major OS Releases

This week, it's all about major operating system releases! With Android 10 and iOS 13 freshly released to the masses, we talk about how we think about the annual cycle of O.S. releases at Buffer and what it means to our mobile team. Each year, we're inundated with some new A.P.I., sweeping architecture changes and more - so a lot of nuance is required to manage all of these new opportunities effectively.

Topics include balancing O.S. work with "feature" work, or projects and initiatives your company already had in development during O.S. announcements, how to evaluate if a new A.P.I. is ready to use and more. We finish up with some reader mail which asks the important question - when should we start development on these new, major releases?

Time Codes:

  • Topic 1: iOS 13 (3:00)
  • Topic 2: Android 10 (4:20)
  • Topic 3: OS work versus Feature Work (15:15)
  • Topic 4: Evaluating new tech and APIs (21:00)
  • Topic 5: GDE and Previews from Google (25:00)

Reader Mail:

  • "How early in the beta cycle do you begin development?" (26:00)
