It seems as though it was yesterday when iOS 11 was launched and yet Apple is working hard at creating a newer version of the software. Reports reaching us from our sources have confirmed that the subsequent version of its software update will be focused on the enhancement and dependability of performance which obviously are areas in which apple needs to work on rather than on the creation of newer features.
This shift in priority came apparently from Apple’s Senior Vice President of software engineering Craig Federighi. Our sources reported that he announced the new plan to the employees of Apple earlier this month. Furthermore in the report, a redesigned home screen, an improved picture-taking process, and updates to bundled apps like Mail have been shifted to being updates of next year. However, there still will be some new features on health and AR in 2018.
Apple’s move to take the year off and refine its software is not a novel trend especially on the MacOS. When of Snow Leopard, Mountain Lion, and High Sierra were launched, they all were not based on increasing the amount of features but on serving to improve the standard and stability of Leopard, Lion, and Sierra, respectively. Having an approach of a like nature being applied to the iOS that focuses on fixing some of the bugs and software issues that have beleaguered the recent versions of the iOS with the purpose of giving a more stable footing for future updates is a wonderfully welcome idea, even though it is one that may result in a less interesting presentation regardless of its significance.
Suppose previous patterns happen to take effect, the next version of iOS will most likely be called iOS 12 and the first preview will in all probability be made at the WWDC in June 2018.
