Apple Bringing Peace To iOS 12 With Performance Boost And Bug Extermination

Apple Bringing Peace To iOS 12 With Performance Boost And Bug Extermination

If Apple is slowing down its release cycle, it could be a turning point for mobile operating system. iOS and Android have been updated at an incredible pace over the past ten years.

If you're an iPad power user, I hope you got all of the multi-tasking features you were hoping for in iOS 11.

A new report from Bloomberg says that Apple made a decision to fix its software issue by rethinking its launch schedule.

The change could lead to more polished software update and less bugs. iOS 11 hasn't been ideal so far, for starters, with customers having to contend with autocorrect bugs, messages arriving out of order, and the calculator app misbehaving.

In good news for iPhone users sick of buggy iOS software, Apple is revamping its entire development schedule to focus on perfecting what it's got instead of relentlessly churning out new features.

For years, Apple has stuck to a strict schedule of annual iOS releases that sport a sometimes dizzying array of new capabilities.

Apple has reportedly told its engineers to renew its approach to developing software updates for iOS and macOS. Results of this efforts will be seen when Apple ships iOS 12 this fall. As per some reports from Beebom, Apple is working towards building an Animoji feature which will have the same technology as used in the iPhone X's Face ID. The company has faced criticism lately for various software issues or feature delays, with many wondering where its near-perfect software experiences of the past are no more. 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. It may also integrate Animojis into FaceTime, letting people put virtual faces over themselves during video calls. The upgrade will be folded into the upcoming macOS 10.14 (known internally as "Liberty") and could involve bringing to the Mac some of Apple's own iPhone apps, including Home, which controls smart appliances. But Apple is not redesigning the home screen, and there will not be a retooled Photos app, two previously planned upgrades that are now being delayed.

Rather than a long list of attention-grabbing features which can then become a chain around its neck, Apple instead intends to be more measured with each iterative iOS update, Bloomberg reports.

Other details about the future operating system remain unknown, and it's possible that some features will be bumped back if they aren't up to snuff.
