Apple Delay Planned Feature Update Over Fear of Bugs
Mike Sanders / 5 months ago
If you own an Apple device you are no doubt used to the regular slew of updates to the iOS. Not a week goes by that my phone doesn’t prompt me to update.
A bug in the machine
In a report via the Telegraph, Apple has delayed any further production of certain features. As part of a new major operating system release, Apple has been looking at innovating many of the current apps while also developing new ones. In the rush to get everything ready though, Apple is concerned that it will result in a bug-ridden mess at launch.
As such, to combat this, Apple has significantly scaled back development to ensure that what they release will be, at least, largely solid.
Why the scale back?
Apple has suffered on several occasions over the last few years, many issues with their iOS updates. One of which recently had a massive impact on their supposed flagship iPhone X which left some users unable to even answer their phones.
The fact then that Apple want to try and clean up this image issue with iOS updates is entirely understandable.
When will the update be released?
It’s hard to say with any certainty. Apple usually releases at least one major update a year. As such, I image we shall have it when it is ready. While the delay and scaleback of new features might be frustrating, I’m sure we would all rather have a good if underwhelming release than a big update that barely works.
