How Harmful Is the iOS 9 Source Code Leak?

iOS 12 for iPads Looks Like a Big Bummer

iOS 12 for iPads Looks Like a Big Bummer

Apple will delay new software features over a concern that its fast-paced release cycle is causing programmers to leave bugs in the code, according to reports.

Although the tight deadlines and a multitude of features may not be appreciated by Apple engineers, the feature-packed updates are definitely appreciated by consumers and have kept them tied to the Apple ecosystem. At Google, teams update apps on their own schedule and aren't tied to the annual Android release. The company is looking to balance introduction of new features alongside more efficient bug fixing given the recent spate of issues, especially, with iOS. In addition, it will also feature a new Digital Health tool that will allow parents to keep a tab on children spending how much time on iOS devices.

Apple has a lot of ideas in the works for iOS.

According to the report, they will now have a two-year window to work on new features, instead of racing against time to get them ready for the annual September launch.

Rather than going for rushing to get the latest features out there, Apple is now expected to pace itself and its engineers. Running iPhone and iPad apps on Mac is only exciting news for those iPhone and iPad users who also happen to be Mac users. While TrueDepth and Animojis are now exclusive to the iPhone X, the report indicates that a new iPad model will include the necessary hardware to support the feature.

And that's my only focus in the days, weeks and months ahead. "Cooler heads on the other side of the Rockies will prevail". Tinhorn Creek gets about 40,000 visitors each year, about 25 per cent of those tourists come from Alberta, Nelson said.

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.

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

Bloomberg offers a preview of Apple's (NASDAQ:AAPL) fall software upgrade including the fact that some major features were delayed as Apple updates how the company develops new products.

Earlier this month Apple released a new update to iOS 11 - the 11.2.5.

Axios reported that "pushed into 2019 are a number of features including a refresh of the home screen and in-car user interfaces, improvements to core apps like mail and updates to the picture-taking, photo editing and sharing experiences". On the one hand, spreading feature updates over a longer period could hurt Apple's competitiveness in the fiercely contested smartphone market.
