Users who have used the latest iOS 13 and macOS Catalina have the same experience: the operating system has far more bugs than ever before, even to the point where it bothers work and life. The good news is that Apple has received complaints from users and is planning to make changes as soon as possible. Apple will focus on overhauling the way it tests its iOS operating system, Bloomberg reported.
This involves the software logo used by the company in the daily build of iOS to stabilize future releases. These flags will allow Apple’s own developers and internal testers to interface more effectively, allowing developers to better isolate error codes.
Google, Microsoft and many other companies have been using this process for years to isolate and test improvements in Chromium, Windows and other software products. Apple is also overhauling the way it develops and tests all of its software, including macOS updates, because since its launch in September, iOS 13 has been complained of a number of problems that have been so severe that Apple has released eight updates to iOS 13 in just two months to address issues such as app crashes, Visual failures, unfinished dark pattern areas, and even a lack of functionality.
The source did not specify the specific improvements to iOS 14, but is clearly working to address the basic stability of this prestigious mobile operating system. Ideally, even the publicbeta version of iOS 14 would be more stable than iOS 13.
However, Apple has yet to separate its main iOS version from the new iPhone hardware. Every year, new iPhones come with larger versions of iOS, and people often feel that operating systems and features are eager to adapt to these new devices in time. New hardware obviously requires new software, but solving software quality and improving user experience is the fundamental problem.
