Developers can now access Apple’s enhanced bug reporting tool, which appeared before WWDC 2013 but was somewhat buggy and disappeared soon after. Now, the service – which allows registered iOS and Mac developers to easily report problems found in Apple’s operating systems and apps – is available once again, and can be accessed at Apple’s website.
The news comes from 9to5Mac, who explains:
Developers tell us that the new design opens up the door for Apple to add new functionality. Additionally, the updated reporter more intuitively informs developers if their bug report has already been submitted. Other new features include improved searching of filed bug reports, more intuitive attaching of files, and the auto-saving (every five minutes) of bug report write-ups.
Below, we’ve included a selection of screenshots taken of the new bug reporting tool.
This latest enhancement comes as just one of many changes presently being made to Apple’s services and websites. AppleCare, for example, was recently revamped in the United States, adding 24/7 live chat support, a new online website, and more to the extended warranty service. It’s expected that similar features of AppleCare+ will make their way to Europe in the coming weeks.
We’ll keep you updated with further information as we receive it.
