passwords: why is apple id max 63 character length allowed?

Yesterday I rotated all my vault passwords and found is. It's a little bug on the Apple ID password reset screen that tells you that your new password is weak if its length is greater than 63 characters (which is fun, especially since it tells you that the password is weak if it's greater a 63: D)

Maximum number of 63 characters.

After that, when discussing this with some colleagues, we asked ourselves why such a curious amount of characters as a limit. Why is 63 characters the password limit?

Then I googled for a while and found nothing related to this specific question.

Does anyone know the intrinsic and / or technical reasons why 63 is the maximum number of characters when setting up an Apple ID password?

After posting it to Hacker News, someone hinted to keep the system safe from any possible DoS attack, which in my opinion is an interesting point of view.

keyboard – why is apple id maximum character length allowed 63?

Simple question. I was yesterday rotating all my vault passwords and I found is. It's a little bug on the Apple ID password reset screen that tells you that your new password is weak if its length is greater than 63 characters (which is fun, actually).

According to the current Guildlines of the Apple app store, are iOS browsers using WebView prohibited?

Current Apple App Store guidelines say

4.7 HTML5 Games, Bots, etc.

Applications can contain or execute code that is not embedded in the binary (for example, HTML5-based games, bots, etc.), as long as the code distribution is not the primary purpose of the application, the code is not offers in-store or store-like interface, and provided the software (1) is free or purchased in-app purchase; (2) only uses capabilities available in a standard WebKit view (for example, it must be natively opened and run in Safari without modification or additional software); your application must use WebKit and JavaScript Core to run third-party software and must not attempt to extend or expose the native APIs of the platform to third-party software; (3) is offered by developers who have joined the Apple Developer Program and have signed the Apple Developer Program License Agreement; (4) does not provide access to real money games, lotteries, or charitable donations; (5) adheres to the terms of these Application Review Guidelines (for example, does not include objectionable content); and (6) does not offer digital products or services for sale. Upon request, you must provide an index of software and metadata available in your application. You must include the team IDs from the Apple Developer Program for software vendors along with a URL that App Review can use to confirm that the software meets the above requirements.

That seems like all third party browsers are banned. Breaking it down

Applications can … execute code that is not embedded in the binary

Ok that's a browser

… as long as the software …

But they must follow these rules.

your application must use WebKit and JavaScript Core

and all the software runs in your embedded webkit view

is offered by developers who have joined the Apple Developer Program and signed the Apple Developer Program License Agreement

Which means that downloading random web pages that run software from users and sites that are not in the Apple Developer Programs runs counter to those rules.

That would mean that all third party browsers are banned. I don't see any exceptions for browsers. Mention running "HTML5 Games, Bots, etc …" Well, browsers run HTML5 Games and run "etc …"

What am I missing?

applescript – Can I handle the "open" Apple event inside a bash shell script using the osascript command?

I use a bash script (myJavaBash.sh) inside an application package (myJavaJar.app), which starts "java -jar myJarFile.jar" with additional JVM arguments (which works fine so far). My goal is to pass a filename as an argument to the application, too, every time the user opens a file via "open with … myJavaJar.app".

I tried to implement OpenFilesHandler in the Java application and copy an AppleScript-scpt-file into the package that calls myJavaBash.sh without success.

The last thing I tried just to test all the possibilities was to call osascript inside bash

#!/bin/bash

#test: set command line args
MY_TITLE="Launching myJavaJarApp"
ARGS_MSG="command line args: "

osascript <<-EndOfScript
    set arguments to ""
      on open theFiles
            repeat with anItem in theFiles
               set arguments to arguments & space & (quoted form of POSIX path of anItem)
            end repeat
      end open
    display dialog "$ARGS_MSG" & arguments with title "$MY_TITLE"     
EndOfScript

It didn't work, the dialog box only indicates $ ARGS_MSG with no arguments, when I open a file with myJavaJar.app.

It seems to me that setting the bash script to CFBundleExecutable "consumes" all AppleEvents.

Or is there some way?

tar – How can encrypted Apple DMGs open so fast?

On the remote disk I have an encrypted .dmg and the same files in a gpg encrypted tar file.
The DMG opens in seconds, but to access the tar file, I first need to decrypt it, in these 10 minutes, and then expand it, another 10 minutes.

How can Apple DMG be so fast? or where do I read more about how it works?

Is it possible to stream AirPlay 2 Audio from an Apple TV to a Mac?

I have an Apple TV HD (4th generation) connected to my projector. I would like to stream your audio to my speakers, which are connected to my Mac (probably via AirPlay 2). Is that possible?

What does the Auto Hotspot setting do on Apple Watch?

When consulting the Apple Support article that explains how to manually connect an Apple Watch to Wi-Fi (https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT209071), the page mentions a setting titled "Access Point automatic ". I have not been able to find any other reference to this setting, could anyone explain what it does?

How do I buy an iTunes song that I liked on Apple Music?

Using the music app on macOS, there are various songs that have been added to my library through Apple Music, however if I want to pay for those songs to be able to use them outside of the Apple ecosystem, I don't see an easy way to do that. If I right-click and select "Show in iTunes Store", every song I added through Apple Music won't let me buy. It simply displays a "play" button instead of the buy button.

The only method I've found is to delete the song from my library, then search for it in iTunes store and then buy it, which removes it from any playlist I have added it to and change the time it was added to my library. This is a completely unreal method for this. Does anyone know of a faster and not tampering library to do this?
