iOS 12: Core Features, Improvement and Performance Appraisal

by Pratik Kanada CEO & Founder

Apple has always shown gluttony in releasing their new products. Releasing the new iOS version and new devices has become the holy grail on the part of the Apple and the Apple users never stop appreciating it. But, this time Apple just made the pig in a poke. Users don’t buy the baloney and are quite disgruntled with the past release of iOS 11. The Apple lovers are in a conundrum, how can Apple come up with a version that has a series of flaws. A giant market player cannot really afford to make release one more version with low quality and performance issues. Apple decides to put a pause on the gluttony, hold the release, keep other things aside and focus on improving or perfecting the lined up iOS 12. The basic plan right at the moment is definitely to add new features but not as many as they previously planned. Several features are thought to be pushed in 2019 and not in the release of 2018. I know iPhone users, as well as an iPhone app development company both, are waiting for the intuitive features a current year, but there is no room for any blunder that happened with iOS 11.


I know there is no point digging into the past, but still, let’s list down the complaints users had with the past launch.

  • The first flaw that came to notice was autocorrected bug.
  • Later, the second discovered bug was the shutdown bug.   
  • The vulnerabilities don’t stop here, the new iOS also caused the older iPhones to run slow.
  • There were also some issues detected in MacOS as well.

Apple commented that they are scrutinizing deeply their app development process and assure its users any such thing won’t happen again. This is a thoughtful step on the part of the Apple. The features that have been put on hold by the Apple for 2018 includes:

  • A revamped CarPlay interface.
  • Enhancement of the mail app.
  • An entirely redesigned home screen.
  • Update in the camera and photo apps.

Users will be upset with the hold on the home screen upgradation. There haven’t been any massive changes on the home screen since quite a while. There have been teeny weeny ones like widget pages, adding folders, change in lock screen but are they enough? That too after the no notch iPhone X design. There has to be a major one soon, but a little patience is all that users need to keep. One of the highlighting features was for the photo management app and it was automatic sort pictures. I know it sounds great, but again a little patience because, at the moment, it is pushed a little back.


Features of iOS 12 That Are Not Pushed Back

All this time we have been discussing what was wrong and what are the things we are going to be devoid of this release, too pessimistic, right? Let’s jump on to the sunshine side of the iOS 12. You are going to experience some massive enhancement in the health apps and ARKit. Well, this is already been there in iOS 11 but they are going to have some serious improvement with a newer version. The newer version will also bring some serious improvement in the Facetime app by making a merger with the third party apps working on the Mac and iPhone both. Parental control will also on the focal things with being able to monitor the app usage time by the kids along with keeping an eye on the overall screen time.


When is The Final Release Date?

A universal question whose answer has been the most awaited. Unfortunately, there is no definite answer to this question. For now, it is estimated to follow the usual schedule: the announcement of the release and the highlighting features will be in WWDC even held in June. After WWDC, the beta versions will be out for testing and bug fixing and the final launch will be around September along with the release of new iPhone. Well, this is just a prediction and not the final one.
