Report: Apple to Delay Some New Features in iOS Until Next Year to Focus on Performance and Quality Issues
Apple has changed its iOS software plans, and will now delay some new features until next year to focus on addressing performance and quality issues, according to Ina Fried, chief technology correspondent at Axios.








The single-sentence report reads:
Apple has shaken up its iOS software plans for 2018, delaying some features to next year in an effort to put more focus on addressing performance and quality issues, Axios has learned.
The report doesn't specify which new features may be delayed. MacRumors reached out to Fried, who told us she plans to publish additional stories that provide more context, but this current story is all to go on for the moment.





In a "why it matters" footnote to the report, Ina said Apple been "criticized of late, both for security issues and for a number of quality issues, as well as for how it handles battery issues on older devices."
