Not really - On iOS, deleting the app only deletes the data in its sandbox. If the developer doesn’t offer this toggle in the settings app (or you don’t trust the developer to actually wipe the data) you might have a problem if you expect all traces to be removed. The problem is apps store data in a lot of places that aren’t the app sandbox. Look at keychain,...

iTunes 12.6.5.3 was the last version that had the ability to download apps. On September 12, 2018 Apple released iTunes 12.7.0.166 which removed the built-in App Store browser and thus the supported ability to store downloaded copies of apps on the machine that iTunes is running on. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/History_of_iTunes See also the article (and ...

I'm on macOS 11.3 Beta (20E5172i) and have the same issue. I've bought an app on my iPhone and my MacBook appears to subsequently try to download that app. I get these messages whenever I download a new app on my iPhone. I found this setting in the macOS App Store Preferences and disabled the automatic app download, but don't know yet if this fixes the ...

Big Sur seals the system and signs it cryptographically - deleting parts of the system is no longer as simple as politely asking SIP to stand down for a moment. You might find it far easier to prevent these apps from launching using restrictions or screen time. The effort required to surgically remove apps is far more than it was in the past. Here's how to ...

Your last point of cask combining the files misses one key step. Someone else has to do the work to assemble and package that app. Homebrew doesn't do that assembly automagically. I've installed mpv on three machines and your results are the same as I get - Intel Big Sur has a cask, M1 does not. Both get the command line binary. Unless and until someone ...

Yes, it's a shortcut - the telltale small arrow gives that information. You can safely delete it, it will not delete the original.

Any iOS can always access the clipboard, there isn't really a way to prevent this from happening. Recent iOS versions show a little info box at the top of the screen when this happens so you should be at least aware if an app does this "in the background". PS: An app can not access clipboards on other devices. What happens with Handoff is that the ...

I use this script set up as a folder action. Basically, whenever I make a screenshot, this script activates, opening the folder I use for screenshots in the Finder, and opening the screenshot in Preview for editing. Copy it into Script Editor, save it as a script to ~/Library/Scripts/Folder Action Scripts/some_name.scpt and then use the Folder Actions ...

The caching issue is specific to your app, not a generic iOS problem. The solution would have to be internal to your app, and thus implemented by your developers.

To find the C string ”FooBar” in your heap: $ lldb PathToYourAppBundle/Contents/MacOS/YourAppName (lldb) command script import lldb.macosx.heap (lldb) r Pause execution with ControlC. (lldb) cstr_refs -m FooBar

For me, this was caused by a slightly overly aggressive disk cleanup tool (CleanMyMac). After cleaning up, the app store's cache was missing, but the app store kept trying to update, causing an error visible in the Console app. The fix was to quit the app store and restart. First attempt to update failed, but it worked on the 2nd try and I could see a new ...

On later versions (ios 14.4 and xcode 12.4) I've fixed with the following Open the Settings app Open General Open Device Management Click on Apple Develpment From here you should be able to trust the app. :-)
