Categorizing your radars

When you encounter a bug in Apple's iOS code, you need to report it. I was always confused about the Product against which I should report my bug. There are 3 categories that made sense to me:

  • Developer Tools
  • iPad SDK
  • iPhone SDK
Thankfully, former Apple Developer Evangelist @jury cleared it up for me:
Basically, use iPad SDK if you find it in the iPad Simulator/device, use iPhone SDK if you find it in the iPhone Simulator/device. Don't double-report the bug, indicate that it exists in multiple categories in the bug text.
