Moar Radars

I posted five Radars today — all of them feature requests.

Core Data

There are some apps — think of RSS readers and Twitter clients — that handle tons of new data every day. They need to be scalable, not block the main thread, and handle cases where they need to delete lots of old objects and change properties for lots of objects at once.

So I filed four feature requests:

Core Data Background Fetches - rdar://15183183

Core Data NSFetchedResultsController - Asynchronous Option - rdar://15183257

Core Data Batch Deleting - rdar://15183213

Core Data Batch Updating Properties - rdar://15183235


Notes API - rdar://15183157

We have APIs for events, reminders, and contacts — why not notes?
