Apple puts its foot on the brakes with iOS 18

iOS 17

Apple has been working on iOS 18 for some time, and The first internal version of this next update has not gone as well as expected, so they have taken a week to focus on their failures.

Although iOS 17 is still almost in release, Apple has already been working on iOS 18, iPadOS 18, watchOS 11 and macOS 15 for some time. The development of an operating system does not take place in a few months, and although we will not see the first Beta of these versions until next June, that is, in about 7 months, According to Mark Gurman, the first phase of development of these next versions would have been completed. The problem, according to Gurman himself, is that the tests carried out after this culmination have not reached the minimum levels required by Apple, since they have detected numerous failures that have caused the decision to pull the handbrake for a week.

Gurman goes further, and says that they have not only stopped the development of iOS 18, but also that of iOS 17.4 (which is not expected before March or April of next year), even that of VisionOS. Craig Federighi's orders have been abandon development of new features and simply focus on fixing bugs detected in these first recently finished versions. This pause will last one week, and normal work is expected to resume next week.

Does this mean that iOS 18 will bring many new features? If logic were of any use in this matter of which we know nothing more than what has been mentioned, The fact that a new version has many bugs would mean that that new version should have many new features. So perhaps this break is good news because it means that iOS 18 could bring us many changes to the system, after an iOS 17 with few new features.
