I originally said I wouldn’t upgrade to iOS 15 but having seen that the custom domain support in iCloud so I thought that I might as well go for it. I upgraded my iPhone and Apple TV with both of them running buttery smooth so far for me, no bugs with third party applications. There was also the release of Safari 15 for macOS and although I’m not enamoured with the idea of the new design I’ve decided to stop whining and get aboard the ‘new tab’ bandwagon and I’m sure with some practice that I’ll eventually get there and it’ll become second nature.
Safari 15 itself is pretty good, no problems with YouTube playback – I’m unsure whether it was the disabling of DPI (Deep Packet Inspection) or the browse but everything appears to be working a lot smoother. It’ll be interesting to see whether we start using content blocking extensions start to make use of the Webextensions API content blocking. The content blocking also has had the cap increased from 50,000 to 300,000 (extension developers get around the limit but spawning a separate process for each filter category thus the limit is now over a million filters which will be more than enough).
At the moment I’m writing an article regarding the National Party and what I think they need to do so that they they can be a viable opposition party, I’ve also got another post on the back burner regarding the negative aspect of social networking (the concept of a social media platform and the business that runs behinds the scenes which applies an otherwise pretty toxic concept).
