Apple delays new IOS feature to focus on reliability
We are not sure if this is going to be a good news but at least Apple is listening to their users. Apple has shaken up its iOS software plans for 2018, delaying some features to next year in an effort to put more focus on addressing performance and quality issues.
Lately, Apple has received plenty of criticisms especially for security issues and for a number of quality issues, as well as for how it handles battery issues on older devices.
Software head Craig Federighi announced the revised plan to employees at a meeting earlier this month, shortly before he and some top lieutenants headed to a company offsite.
“Instead of keeping engineers on a relentless annual schedule and cramming features into a single update, Apple will start focusing on the next two years of updates for its iPhone and iPad operating system, according to people familiar with the change,” reported Bloomberg.
“The company will continue to update its software annually, but internally engineers will have more discretion to push back features that aren’t as polished to the following year,” the report added citing internal sources from Apple.
Reliability, Security and Performance are what the fundamental of the new update is focusing on. It is definitely a good news however we are unsure on whether how Apple can create a balance when they announce exciting new features.
