Performance and stability have always been cornerstones for Apple’s iOS mobile software, but 2017 didn’t do too well for the world’s top smartphone manufacturer. iOS 11 had some major troubles and even some iPhones rebooting, draining battery and God knows what. iOS 12 is set to be different and Apple’s resolution for 2018 seems to be going back to the basics.
In a world of intense competition, rolling out update after update only to see issues continue to arise has forced Apple back into the drawing room. Reports by various outlets have drawn attention to the necessity of Apple going back to the basics and focus on what their iOS has always been known for: stability and performance.
The Report Which Confirms the Peace Project and Release of iOS 12
A new Bloomberg story has reportedly confirmed that. Apple is now going towards perfecting the upcoming release of iOS 12 and delaying more drastic features for future versions. Internally speculated to be known as “Peace”, what will later most likely become iOS 12, is expected to be released in September of 2018.
According to the report,
“This change is Apple beginning to realize that schedules are not being hit, stuff is being released with bugs – which previously would not have happened. When Apple was a smaller company with fewer engineers, customers and devices to manage, says one person familiar with the company.
Under the previous system, a person familiar with Apple says, inevitably, some things will be late because you underestimated how long it would take. Some things have to be cut, some things have to be rushed. It’s the result of having thousands of people working on the same schedule.”
Some Great Features Packed into iOS 12
While Apple is expected to hold off some major upgrades till maybe the mid of the iOS 12 cycle or even till iOS 13 in 2019, there are still a number of great features we expect to be released this year.
Some of the ones we are looking forward to the most are:
The ability to run iPhone apps on Macs
Animoji support in FaceTime and more animated emojis as well
New Digital Health Tool
FaceID support on iPad
Freshly Designed Stock Apps
Upgraded Do Not Disturb Mode
Siri Upgrades and Much More
Rather than going for rushing to get the latest features out there, Apple is now expected to pace itself and its engineers. It is a lot better to have features come in slowly and steadily, rather than have phones crashing and making national headlines. Apple users across the globe are looking forward to iOS 12, because with every year, an Apple update makes everything that much better.
Even though Apple updates may become fewer and farther in-between, sources are still certain that a new version of iOS will be a yearly thing.
