How many times did you update your iPhone after iOS 13 arrived? Stephen Warwick says Apple feels your pain.
Apple plans to overhaul the way it tests software, in the wake of an iOS 13 release plagued by bugs and stability issues.
This seems to happen every three or four years. I like this idea.
The new system will reportedly revolve around development teams ensuring that test versions of iOS future updates (known as “daily builds”) automatically disable unfinished or buggy features. Testers will then be able to selectively enable those features via a new internal process named Flags, a settings menu that allows them to isolate each bug and its impact on the functionality of the software.
iOS 13 on my iPhone did not have any major bugs, but the sheer number of updates over the two months after launch is a telling tale.
