Apple will delay new software features over a concern that its fast-paced release cycle is causing programmers to leave bugs in the code, according to reports.
The Cupertino tech conglomerate, Apple, is doing wonders in the tech industry ever since it debuted with iPhone X with the new face ID feature. Given the troubles Apple has had with its latest versions of iOS, focus on the fundamentals likely wouldn't hurt.
After years of annually rolling out flashy new features and capabilities for its mobile operating system - think Animojis, FaceID, virtual reality, redesigned lock screens, and an ever-smarter Siri - Apple is dialing down its style ambitions to focus on substance, in particular, bug-free software.
Although the tight deadlines and a multitude of features may not be appreciated by Apple engineers, the feature-packed updates are definitely appreciated by consumers and have kept them tied to the Apple ecosystem.
"The company is shaking up its development program to focus more on key features and push back others to the following year", says the report.

Software chief Craig Federighi spoke to his team about the new strategy last month, according to the source. "The renewed focus on quality is created to make sure the company can fulfill promises made each summer at the annual developers conference and that new features work reliably and as advertised", according to the report. This includes a framework for third parties to develop apps that will work on iOS and macOS devices - part of what was reported on earlier by the outlet's Mark Gurman. In June this year, Apple will showcase iOS 12.
In terms of the iPad, tabs - which have typically only been used in desktop browsers like Windows 10 and macOS - are coming as well, allowing several windows to run inside a single app, as well as he ability to run apps simultaneously, side-by-side.
This new approach to developing products sounds good on paper but only time will tell if Apple can pull it off long term.
