iOS 17 arrived on devices just a few weeks ago appleThus offering a series of improvements to FaceTime applications, messaging and more, it is compatible with the iPhone 15 launch. However, the company hasn’t taken a break, as iOS 18 development is already underway. However, this proved to be a problem for the company.
According to a report by Mark Gurman, a Bloomberg journalist who has been recognized for his leaks about Apple, development of iOS 18 and macOS 15 is not progressing as the company would like. Thus, It has been decided to pause these projects indefinitely to resolve their issues. The decision head of engineering, Craig Federighi, had to make.
Gurman points out the problem There are 10’s of people typing code and completely breaking the operating system. For this reason, Apple has chosen to cripple operations until a solution is found.
This is not the first time something like this is happening, since 2018, Apple had a similar problem with iOS 12. At the time, this software was causing the company headaches, and Federighi himself made the difficult decision to stop developing the software altogether.
During that time, Federighi and his team worked with new guidelines to make it easier to identify errors and, as a result, develop potential solutions. unfortunately, Since 2019, the company has had the most trouble developing iOS 18When they left behind all the problems of iOS 12.
Let us remember that iOS 12 introduced multiple issues that plagued its usersReduced battery life, slow performance after updating, connectivity issues, some older apps not working properly, iCloud sync or storage errors, Face ID or Touch ID issues, Siri not working as expected in some cases.
Thus, Many fans of the company hope that these errors will not be repeated with iOS 18. While this is a possibility, Apple has done everything possible to bring its most recent software updates on par with what its consumers expect.
In a related matter, Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak has been hospitalized in Mexico. Similarly, Apple released a new line of Mac computers.
These types of software errors are common. However, and as we’ve seen in other industries, overexploitation of single systems is a problem that can cost companies a lot. Instead of immediately working on the next version of iOS, Apple should focus on improving what it already has and then move on.
