Apple Bans Sideloading iOS Apps on M1 Macs

This week Apple disabled iOS app sideloading on M1 devices running macOS 11.1. While Apple try to wrangle iOS apps onto M1 Macs they're running into some trouble. There are some developers who have decided not to allow their iOS apps to run on Apple Silicon. Prior to macOS 11.1, users had the option of sideloading apps that they had purchased for their mobile device. Major companies like Google and Facebook have disallowed this in their apps.

This is exactly the sort of authoritarian behavior from Apple that rubs me the wrong way. Their Walled Garden philosophy feels more like a prison for consumers and their rights. I'm infuriated by the idea that users are limited in how they can use their lawfully purchased apps.

David Harry explores what happens when you attempt to sideload, or even run previously sideloaded, apps.

Video Description:

So with the recent Mac OS Big Sur 11.1 or a beta version of 11.2 updates on your Apple Mac M1 device, I'm using a M1 Mac Mini but this also applies to the MacBook Pro M1 and MacBook Air M1, Apple have now banned the sideloading of certain iOS Apps on M1 Mac computers.

So for those of us who were looking forward to taking advantage of Apple's new Apple Silicon M1 ARM chip and specifically the ability to run iOS Apps natively, as iOS Apps on iPad, iPad Pro and iPhone also use ARM processor chips. This news has come as a bit of blow.

I was really looking forward to playing Fortnite on the Mac Mini M1 or any other Mac with the Apple Silicon M1 chip and was also looking forward to playing PUBG Mobile, COD Mobile and a bunch of other iOS games natively on my Mac Mini M1.

So as it stands now, using applications such as iMazing to transfer, copy and run your iOS Apps from your iPad or iPhone to your M1 Mac computer, isn't going to work for a whole load of Apps.

Don't forget, what makes this more disappointing is that unlike jailbreaking an Apple device to play games or run apps that weren't downloaded form the App Store. Simply sideloading an iOS App on your M1 Mac isn't like trying to bypass your iPad or iPhone security as you would with one that is jailbroke. Sideloading in this instance is perfectly safe and legal and doesn't bypass any security what so ever in the way you would if you Jailbreak your iPhone, iPad or any iOS device.

Anyway, so there goes my video about how to sideload iOS apps on M1 Mac :) and playing iOS games on Apple Silicon M1.

Let's Play with AudioKit AR-909 & MixBox CS

The TR-909 is by far my favorite of all the classic drum machines. When AudioKit released AR-909 I knew I was going to be in for a treat. The sound design options in here can make it sound like a very unique instrument, and not just an emulation of the original! After tweaking it using just the internal tools, I ran the audio into IK's new MixBox CS to justify them giving me a free copy of their $40 mastering effects behemoth.

Video Description:

AudioKit brings us a lovingly-crafted 909-inspired drum machine app! It some unique sound design which I make great use of in this Let's Play. I then stuff it into IK Multimedia's new MixBox CS for extra compression and grit, before jamming with AR-909 and Troublemaker.

Let's Play with Agonizer

I've known Kai and Jakob for ages, so I was super happy to see the two of them join forces for Agonizer! While this is designed for music that is outside of my own tastes, the app provides a fun way to design deep, visceral, bass that will fit in many genres! I had a whole bunch of fun with this one!

Video Description:

Kai Aras (Numerical Audio) worked with Jakob Haq to create the Bass Synth of Jakob's dreams. Those dreams were fueled by a love of Dub... which is not something I share. I can dig it, but I can't produce it. I take Agonizer's sound sculpting tools in an entirely different direction in this Let's Play!

Halloween 2020: Pandemic Proof

This year my husband an I designed our Halloween stuff around being Pandemic Proof! Children are fun to scare, but they're also covered in germs and diseases. We needed a way to keep them far away from us!

Video Description:

I feel so bad for all of the kids that have been cooped up for the whole year. I have ADHD, and bored very easily as a child, so I can't imagine how unbearable this must be. We weren't about to let the pandemic stop us from terrifying our neighbor's kids! It's the reason for the season!

Let's Play with Skaka (and Velvet Machine)

If you search for Tim Webb on the site you get very few relevant results, despite my name appearing on every single post in the by-line. I've been doing some behind the scenes tweaking of the site's search function and it is kind of weird that none of my videos are results when you search for my name.

In-between coding and weird search algorithm experiments, I took some time to play with Skaka this week!

Video Description:

Klevgränd's new Shaked Percussion app Skaka is not quite a percussion app. I try to respect it in its native habitat, before taking it off into some weird directions! I do this with the help of Yuri Turov's new not quite a reverb app, Velvet Machine.
