TCP and UDP ports used by Apple software products. Learn about TCP and UDP ports used by Apple products such as macOS, macOS Server, Apple Remote Desktop, and iCloud.

TCP and UDP ports used by Apple software products

Many of these are well-known, industry-standard ports. Network administrators can use this information to make sure that Mac computers and other Apple devices can connect to services such as the App Store and Apple's software-update servers. Ports used by Apple products This is a quick-reference guide showing common examples, not a comprehensive list of ports. This guide is updated periodically with information available at the time of publication. Some software might use different ports and services, so it can be helpful to use port-watching software when deciding how to set up firewalls or similar access-control schemes. Some services might use more than one of these ports. Some firewalls allow selective configuration of UDP or TCP ports with the same number, so it's important to know the type of port you're configuring. 1. 2. 3.

How do you do this? Is your application ready for submission? I am sure that some of these questions have entered your mind at one point or another. Is submitting an application as simple as sending Apple your application's binary? Not quite. Even though the App Store review process is a black box for the most part, that doesn't mean that you can't prepare yourself and your application for Apple's review process. The first time you submit an application to the App Store is exciting and nerve-racking at the same time.

After the past few years I found that the only manageable way for creating/maintaining view (or any UI element in more general) is to instantiate the UIView from Xib file. Creating/designing is far more intuitive in Interface Builder than write layout code, defining layout constants (dimensions, colors), or even worse introduce magic numbers to nudge the elements all around.

I’m planning to introduce 5 methods below, I’ve been used each of them in different circumstances over the times. Using Private iOS APIs.

For this reason, we are going to work on the `titleView` properties adding all the main logics there. Here is a preview of the final result! Let’s Code You can download the project and follow the next steps. Before diving into the code let’s identify the main actors for this control. 1. 2. UIViewController transition from UICollectionViewCell.

Later, we were asked to swap out the default animation for a fancy animation that made parts of the cell look like they were folding/unfolding. It took us 3 days — here’s how we did it!

Most of the apps handle some sort of data, no matter in what format they are, and always perform some actions upon it. There are various solutions offered to developers for storing and managing data, and usually each one of them is suitable for different kind of applications. However, when working with large amount of data, the preferred method it seems like a one-way path: That is the use of a database.

Indeed, making use of a database can solve various kind of problems that should be solved programmatically in other cases. For programmers who love working with databases and SQL, this is the favorite data-managing method at 90% of the cases, and the first think that crosses their minds when talking about data.
