This week in Flutter #6
Next week is WWDC time, and Apple might introduce new features in iOS, iPadOS, and macOS. Whether they will be available on Flutter depends on the type of feature.
Last year’s biggest announcements were 1) [[widgets](https://developer.apple.com/widgets/)](https://developer.apple.com/design/human-interface-guidelines/ios/system-capabilities/widgets/) and 2) App Clips (I bet you forgot about them). The formers are not available directly in Flutter, while there is a workaround for the latter, but with some size limitations.
I am looking forward to seeing what Apple has in store for developers this year. I am hoping for a way to effectively develop on iPad, now that there is an M1 version available.

How To Validate Emails in Flutter
Luciano Jung is releasing a new article every week about how to use different published Flutter packages. This week is about [email_validator](https://betterprogramming.pub/how-to-validate-emails-in-flutter-957ae75926c9). Although I do not use this package (yet), I thought it was worth mentioning, because I hope he sticks with this series of articles. I am always eager to learn about packages (and widgets) I do not know yet.
