Apple delays software features due to bugs

20 iOS App on Sale | iPhone Apps Price Drop – 11 Feb 2018

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.

Arguably more damaging to Apple's reputation are those features which have been released but haven't worked quite as intended. Does a software update with a bevy of new features excite you, or a stable release with relatively lesser new features?

As a result, developers will get two years instead of one to work on new features, which means the firm's expected iOS 12 reveal in September may be a lot shorter than previous presentations.

Apple is reportedly overhauling its software and products strategy.

Apple's next major update to iOS, iOS 12, will push it closer to MacOS by offering developers the ability to create iPhone apps that will also run on Apple's desktop operating system.

According to the Bloomberg article, the only feature to expect on the iPad in iOS 11 is for Apple's Animoji characters to arrive on the iPad (which would match with rumors suggesting that Face ID is coming to the tablet).

The UK market will also be the first to see Norwegian's incoming A321neo LR aircraft, which will enter service from 2020. It then occupied seventh place in the rankings of most transatlantic seats flown but that position is likely to improve.

The change in its strategies is an uncharacteristic admission by Apple that its recent software updates have not been up-to-the-mark.

After receiving a number of complaints, the company has chose to halt new features for next two years and will be more focused on improving the operating system.

Apple did not respond to The Daily Caller News Foundation's request for comment in time of publication. The company hopes to introduce new functionality that will allow users to use Animoji in FaceTime so they can control the animated faces that mirror their behaviors in real time while communicating with others.

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

The Apple employee was reported not disgruntled, and simply leaked the files to his jailbreaking friends who were interested in iOS security.

According to Bloomberg, this fall there would be no tweak in the home screen, neither would it have any major new features. The company is planning to allow a single set of apps to work across iPhones, iPads, and Macs. Additional iPad software upgrades aren't expected until 2019 but they include a feature that would let you run several windows in one app and click between them like tabs in a web browser and a feature that lets two screens from one app run side by side.
