Apple Inc. Considering Making Big Changes To iOS Release Cycle

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

On the one hand, spreading feature updates over a longer period could hurt Apple's competitiveness in the fiercely contested smartphone market.

The company has decided to make a major change to its development program, rather than having its engineers work on a relentless annual release schedule crammed with new features, according to a report Monday from Bloomberg. The company feels that keeping engineers locked on the relentless annual schedule of an update launch and trying too hard to push everything into a single update is something that it wants to shift away from.

Apple software chief Craig Federighi apparently told his engineers about the change last month, and the effects should be seen in the iOS update that's coming this fall. And this may be good news for Apple users.

Kuwait urges broad participation in reconstruction of Iraq
Large parts of Iraq's second-largest city, Mosul, are still in ruins, more than six months after it was retaken by the government. Meanwhile France's Foreign Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian visited Iraq on Monday to discuss the war-torn country's reconstruction.

Although the company remains committed to an annual software update, this autumn's update will lack a number of features, according to Bloomberg.

Apple has been criticized for several humiliating failures in quality assurance with iOS 10 and 11 related to the keyboard and Apple Pay Cash.

The next version of iOS most likely won't have a major home-screen redesign or a big killer new feature, as previous versions have brought. These tentpoles are given to a software group who works countless hours to ensure them ready for the phone's release date. While the bulk of this report is simply a rehash of the first one, with little new added, Bloomberg adds additional detail on what features Apple will be bringing to their devices over the next two years.

And mature products don't need to change every year for comparatively arbitrary reasons.

Piggybacking off of that expanded camera technology, Apple is reportedly working on multiplayer modes for augmented reality games that would allow multiple people to play the mixed reality games at the same time.

Apple hasn't confirmed anything about iOS 12 at this point in time and it's unlikely that the company will say anything about it prior to WWDC 2018 where iOS 12 will be officially announced. Not only has Android become way slicker than before, but Apple has started to put out buggier software, annoying iPhone and iPad users.

The Indianapolis Colts Have Their New Head Coach
Multiple assistant coaches signed contracts thinking they would work under McDaniels. The Eagles have also suffered two big losses to their staff since the Super Bowl.

And as hundreds of millions of people use iPhones for hours each day, a larger share of users will experience a bug, Sinofsky says. As such, Apple's sweeping request that "all or most of the forks in these networks are infringing" doesn't technically follow the rules, The Register reported.
