I recently moved from the US layout to the UK layout for my shiny new MacBook Air M2. I’d get used to the keys, however, my work MacBook is still on the US layout. Therefore, I decided to:
Remap the section key § to tilde/back-tick (I use the tilde and back tick keys a lot)
Remap the original tilde key to the left shift, so that I don’t accidentally hit the tilde in the wrong place
Bring back the keyboard brightness keys by remapping the Siri (F5) + DND keys (F6)

Tim, iOS has always been known for it’s user interface, until recently. Your new take on notifications have not only made them very loud, and unsettling, but do not flow with the entire look and feel of Apple:
No Mr. Tim, no. My notifications aren’t waiting for me. They’re crying out for my attention.
See that white background? While you’ve done a good job of highlighting the content, it breaks continuity. There was nothing wrong to start with. The way notifications used to render on my iPhone was simply perfect! The content did not need to be highlighted the way you’ve done so in iOS 10. I really loved iOS for not cluttering my life, and making it simpler, compared to Android (the new style does look like inspiration from Android, doesn’t it?).
Comparing this to iOS 9, what you’ve lost is absolute ingenuity:
See? Nothing was ever wrong.
I’ve been using the beta version of iOS 10 for a little more than a few hours now, and the Today screen has also been ruined. Oh! I almost forgot – what you’ve done to the control centre is horrible. Do you know what this reminds me of? It reminds me of the Red Wedding – Lord Bolton murdering the King of the North, Robb Stark. That was truly gruesome, wasn’t it?
Tim, iOS 9 was the epitome of creation.
I truly hope that this letter talks solely about iOS 10 preview, and that it doesn’t speak for iOS 10 final.
HTTP/2 is still very much new to Java, and as such, there are just two libraries who support it – Jetty (from 9.3), and Netty (in alpha). If you’re going the Jetty way (as I have), you’ll need to add their ALPN library to your boot classpath.
