What To Expect From Apple’s iOS 12
31 January, 2018 | Technology
We are around 5 months away from Apple unveiling iOS 12 but according to reports the new iPhone iOS update isn’t going to be as exciting as usual.
Craig Federighi, Apple's senior vice president of software engineering, has told the iOS team to focus on performance and stability instead of new features.
Apple was originally reported to be planning a brand new home screen for iOS 12 but now it looks like they will be focusing on fixing iOS 11 bugs instead.
All other new features that were expected to be released with iOS 12 such as a redesigned CarPlay interface, improvements to core apps like Mail and updates to the camera app have also reportedly been put on hold and pushed back to iOS 13.
iOS 12 will now have a number of new features focused on improvements in augmented reality and health. It’s also been reported that Apple will be working on making “iPhones more responsive and less prone to cause customer support issues”.
The change in development plans are likely down to the heavy criticism towards the software over the last year due to numerous bugs, and the fact that they have had to deal with security issues too.
Apple will likely announce iOS 12 at WWDC 2018, which is expected to be in early June. It is still possible that Apple may have some big surprises lined up for iOS 12, but it may be a good idea to lower your expectations.
