How Apple Hopes to Eliminate Those Annoying iPhone Bugs

Apple confirms iPhone source code leak We now know why an Apple employee decided to leak secret iPhone code

At Apple, all new features are tied to a big release in the fall, when Apple rolls out its splashiest new software, and a more modest update in the spring.

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.

So if you're an iOS user and you've been jonesing for those features, just be patient. Bloomberg's report suggests Apple teams will now have similar flexibility, although it's unclear if app updates will be separated from iOS. This focus on introducing a bevy of new features with every major update saw the likes of Apple Pay Cash and Messages on iCloud being delayed despite their announcement a year ago. This feature appears likely to appear in iOS 12.

Engineers will now be able to push back the release of features they believe need more work. After launching a series of updates that have contained bugs and undeveloped features, Apple's faced criticism from its users and developers.

Gizbot reports that the upcoming Apple iOS 12 will bring various features, including the capability of running the iPhone apps on the Mac devices.

Eight-try Ireland thrash Italy in Six Nations
Ireland led in the 11th minute when Connor Murray's smart pass found Robbie Henshaw and he crashed over from close range. The outside centre bagged two tries today, but landed rather awkwardly when scoring the second.

According to Bloomberg, Apple will move to more of a two-year roadmap for iOS and MacOS "instead of keeping engineers on a relentless annual schedule and cramming features into a single update". It's also claimed that the Animojis will also be making their way to the iPad when Apple releases a refreshed model that has a compatible Face ID camera.

As Sinofsky points out, we tend to talk about development as if its three goals - the so-called "iron triangle" of quality of release, pace of change, and the adding of new features - exist in a zero-sum game.

The update is codenamed "Peace", according to Bloomberg.

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".

The report says Apple is also planning on revamping the Stocks app, improving Do Not Disturb to integrate Siri, as well as improvements to ARKit. For example, you could run the Messages app twice side-by-side to interact with two threads at once. The change is said to have been introduced in response to a perceived drop in quality over Apple's recent software releases.
