iOS 14 Pasteboard Notifications


If you thought the new API -[UIPasteboard detectValuesForPatterns:completionHandler:] on iOS 14 is designed to avoid privacy alerts when accessing pasteboard, no, it is not. It still triggers privacy alerts.


Testing result in beta 1: even if the pasteboard content doesn’t match the pattern.

I would have expected that with no matches there would be no notification. I guess you are expected to first call the detectPatterns API and then, depending on the result, call detectValues.
