54: “Swift 5.1, iOS 13 and iPadOS”, with special guests Benedikt Terhechte and Bas Broek

Benedikt Terhechte and Bas Broek join John to dive into the new APIs and features in iOS 13 and iPadOS, as well as Swift 5.1 — how it powers SwiftUI, and if it would be possible to backport parts of SwiftUI to earlier iOS versions. Also, text editors, new iPhone and iPad UI conventions, and much more.
