Back to building quality Major iOS releases are highly predictable, arriving each September with a slew of new features in tow.
Oh, and the iOS 12 update will have a redesigned, built-in Stocks app.
So let's look at some of the rumored features for iOS 12 and 13, macOS 10.14 and 10.15. Instead, iOS 12 will bring Apple fans something a lot more important, and it's a "feature" that you might not even notice at first. The Cupertino-giant always come up with the new admirable feature and fascinating devices but since iOS has been facing issues, the company is looking forward to developing its focus on improving its operating feature rather than introducing new features.
That routine, combined with the fact that Apple opted long ago to make those major updates free to install for iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch owners, has helped maintain excitement around iOS in general.
Engineers will now be able to push back the release of features they believe need more work. Apple is now slowing its pace and giving developers more time to work on stability and bug fixes by planning its introductions over a two-year cadence. Some of the features mentioned include the ability to run several apps within one app and shift between them just like you would do on a Mac when changing browser tabs.
Apple apparently wants all this chaos to end as much as its fans do, which is why it's apparently chose to focus on 2 years of phased updates to the iPhone and iPad. It's also claimed that the Animojis will also be making their way to the iPad when Apple releases a refreshed model that has a compatible Face ID camera.
"This change is Apple beginning to realize that schedules are not being hit, stuff is being released with bugs - which previously would not have happened". As per the report, the features that have been pushed to 2019 include a redesigned home screen, updates apps like Mail, and some reported tweaks in the Photos app. For example, you could run the Messages app twice side-by-side to interact with two threads at once.
Although the company remains committed to an annual software update, this autumn's update will lack a number of features, according to Bloomberg.
The change in its strategies is an uncharacteristic admission by Apple that its recent software updates have not been up-to-the-mark.
