“Bugs” iOS 13 Apple reflects, iOS 14 changes the development method

IOS 13 was released in September, and bug complaints were repeated, and minor updates were frequently repeated. Rumors have been reported that Apple is changing the way internal builds are developed to prevent this from happening in the next major version of iOS 14.

Bloomberg tells us that Apple internal engineers have been “packed” into iOS’s daily builds before fully testing new features. Testers were forced to verify with such unstable builds, so it was impossible to figure out what was working and which was causing the failure.

In contrast, in iOS 14, all new features are disabled by default in ongoing OS builds, and there is an option that can be selectively enabled using an internal process and settings menu called “Flags” That’s it. In other words, you can turn on or off new functions one by one to isolate the cause of the problem.

This makes it easier for Apple internal managers to keep track of the progress of the new OS development and to easily remove features that are not ready for release.

The new development approach will also apply to all Apple OSes, including iPadOS, watchOS, macOS and tvOS. Although iOS 14 is scheduled to be packed with new features as well as iOS 13, if it is necessary, it is said that we are preparing to postpone implementation of some functions until iOS 15, and forcing release with bugs full I don’t think so.

In the first place, why did iOS 13 start being full of bugs? According to Bloomberg, about a month before Apple’s internal announcement at WWDC 19 in June, iOS 13 noticed that its performance was not as good as the previous iOS 12, and some people “ confused ” development. I noticed that I was doing it.

And in August, just before the start of distribution, we realized that iOS 13.0 bundled with the new iPhone did not meet the quality standards, and that work was almost stopped. Concentrating on improving the first update, iOS 13.1, this was considered an “actual public release” with a quality level comparable to iOS 12. Apple is reported to have installed iOS 13.0 in a hopeless situation (the original is die-hard) and that only Apple fans have adopted it.

If you receive this article at face value, Apple has begun to distribute iOS 13.0, praying that you do not want to install it. Certainly, veteran Apple product users have a habit of seeing off the first version of the latest OS and watching it, but iOS 14 expects a non-die-hard user with a safe bug-free OS I want to do it.
