Apple working on iPad with Face ID

iOS 12 for iPads Looks Like a Big Bummer

After receiving a number of complaints, the company has chose to halt new features for next two years and will be more focused on improving the operating system.

If you're an iPad power user, I hope you got all of the multi-tasking features you were hoping for in iOS 11.

Bloomberg describes the shift as "an admission of what many customers have already come to notice: Some Apple software has become prone to bugs and underdeveloped features".

The company has decided to make a major change to its development program, rather than having its engineers work on a relentless annual release schedule crammed with new features, according to a report Monday from Bloomberg.

But, there's still plenty to look forward to in iOS 12, including Animoji in FaceTime, which would let you overlay the animated graphics over your face during video calls.

Apple is also expected to add a redesigned version of its in-house stock-tracking app. This is just one of the many features set to arrive on the company's new iOS release codenamed "Peace".




For the a year ago, armchair analysts and experts have been debating whether the glitches mean that the quality of Apple software is getting worse. The Animoji characters will also come to the iPad, with the company reportedly working on a model of the tablet with a Face ID camera. After launching a series of updates that have contained bugs and undeveloped features, Apple's faced criticism from its users and developers. Even iPad users will have to wait until 2019 for major updates.

Additionally, there will be new features for the Apple Pencil, as well as a switch in the Mail app to silence selected email threads.

After the release of the iOS 11 was plagued by performance issues, it was revealed that Apple is looking to make reliability the primary focus of the iOS 12. 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. The next update to macOS is internally known as "Liberty" and will likely be macOS 10.14.

Apple is definitely promising a lot with its upcoming software update. However, expected features such as a redesigned Home Screen for iOS and CarPlay, a revamped Photos app, multitasking on iPad etc. are being delayed till iOS 13.

Apple software chief Craig Federighi apparently told his engineers about the change last month, and the effects should be seen in the iOS update that's coming this fall.
