When you see an Apple logo on your wrist, you’ve got a problem. Really. I’ve caught it three times since updating to first watchOS 7, then watchOS 7.0.1, when my iPhone updated to iOS 14. The first two times my Apple Watch rebooted it was at my home. This time I was out on an errand, and I had both my iPhone with me and presence of mind to grab a quick snapshot before it finished rebooting.
I haven’t suffered from any of the other problems listed in this article, but the fact I’ve stared at the Apple logo boot on my watch when I wanted to check the time is annoying as hell. Once again Apple’s software developers [sic] have screwed the pooch, this time on my Apple Watch Series 3.
I’m working with Pycom ( https://pycom.io/ ) IoT devices. One of the tools they supply to work with their devices is a plugin named PyMakr. They have release a version for Visual Studio Code and Atom. The version for VS Code has never worked on my MacBook Pro 15″ or 16″. As a consequence I’ve turned to Atom just to run the plugin. It seems to work properly with Atom. But I’d rather have it work with VS Code, since I do everything else with VS Code.
Here is the setup for the software environment.
macOS Catalina, version 10.15.6
Visual Studio Code, version 1.49.2
PyMakr, version 1.1.7
Node.js, version 14.12.0 (installed via Homebrew)
To make this even more maddening, I have the same setup on a 2012 Mac Mini Server running the same software listed above, and it works. But when it comes to running on my MacBook Pro 15″ or newer 16″, it won’t work at all.
