Radar is a well-known tool for developers in the Apple universe, even though it is an internal service reserved for company employees. Born in the late 1980s, this tool intended to record all bugs and track them until they are corrected no longer has a very good reputation. It is nevertheless essential to the proper functioning of Apple for more than thirty years and regularly brought up to date and used by an ever wider audience.
From its birth at the end of the 1980s to its current state, between an all-purpose tool internally and an unloved one externally, here is the story of Radar!
An app created in 1989 to meet all the needs of Apple employees
A bug tracker is a fundamental tool in development, a place where all known issues with an app or operating system are recorded, along with all suggestions for improvement. There are several turnkey tools available today, but Apple has always used an in-house solution that was created in-house called Radar. A solution that is not new, since this service was created between 1988 and 1989.
