Apple to focus on performance and reliability in iOS 12, major features delayed
Apple’s last two major releases iOS 10 and iOS 11 were full of new features. But those new additions also added more bugs and reportedly hit the performance for a large chunk of users, something that Apple doesn’t want their users to experience.
And it’s no surprise that the tech giant is changing its focus from adding more features to making sure that the existing ones work properly. This is a welcome change. Google did the same thing with Android Oreo too.
According to the report, Apple SVP Craig Federighi has asked employees to work on reliability and performance related issues. Initially, Apple had planned to revamp home screen, Carplay features and some major updates to core apps like Email, Maps, and Notes. Those projects are side-lined now and will be part of next year’s iOS release.
Apple will officially announce the major iOS 12 changes at the annual WWDC event in June.
