@stooovie That doesn’t make sense to me. I wonder if it’s swapping? Maybe you can use fs_usage to see which files are being written.

@_inside Is there an advantage to doing that instead of the reverse? Seems like then the Big Sur customers would see the old icon in Finder.

@simX Just different iPhones over the years. It does depend on humidity/sweatiness, though. (Wetter makes glossy more grippy.)

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to simX

@simX I’ve not tried a 12 Pro, but I’ve used other phones with glossy and matte backs and found glossy to be less slippery.

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to simX

@simX Seems like matte is more slippery to hold, so I guess I would have preferred glossy everywhere.

@simX Just opened mine. I like it, too.

@DamienPetrilli @wincent If you have plug-ins, you can reset it back to a quick launch time by disabling and then re-enabling them.
