IOS 12 Will Let You Use Animojis In FaceTime Video Calls

  • Apple releases Battery Health tool for iPhones

Other software issues reported by Apple users over the past few months include apps that crash, out-of-order text messages, and delays in how the iPhone X responds to incoming phone calls, according to Bloomberg.

Unlike Android, iOS always had a different release strategy. The new strategy is meant to allow Apple to avoid releasing new features with bugs, avoid missing schedules and actually fulfill the promises it makes at its annual developer conference in June.

The New York Post reports individuals within a jailbreak community encouraged a "low-level" Apple employee to leak iBoot's source code in 2016, resulting in the biggest leak in Apple's history.

According to Bloomberg, this fall there would be no tweak in the home screen, neither would it have any major new features.

Engineers will now be able to push back the release of features they believe need more work. The risk here is that consumers in a competitive environment won't be satisfied with minor changes and jump ship for something more innovative, but it's a chance Apple will have to take if it wants to hold on to its reputation of superior software. Their more agile model enables features to be cut from release as and when required, before being reintroduced at a later date.




So if you're an iOS user and you've been jonesing for those features, just be patient.

The rethink sees the company bowing to critics who claim iOS 11 is rife with bugs and design inconsistencies. This includes a framework for third parties to develop apps that will work on iOS and macOS devices - part of what was reported on earlier by the outlet's Mark Gurman. The iPhone X launch, while financially successful for the company, has still gathered its share of software complaints.

The report adds how iOS 12 aka "Peace" is now under development, and is set to come with a few new features. Expected to be the flagship software update for this year, it will focus on a small number of polished features, rather than a laundry list of additions. After launching a series of updates that have contained bugs and undeveloped features, Apple's faced criticism from its users and developers.

Apple has a very convincing rational behind delaying various features and adopting a new iOS release cycle. According to sources speaking with Motherboard, this all came down to an intern working at Apple, who stole the code over a year ago. For iPhone owners, it's a sign that the smartphone in their pocket is more likely to behave as expected, reducing some of the apprehension when it comes to installing the newest version of iOS.
