Report: Apple Delaying Some iOS 12 Features to 2019

Ina Fried, reporting for Axios:

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.


Software head Craig Federighi announced the revised plan to employees at a meeting earlier this month, shortly before he and some top lieutenants headed to a company offsite.

Fried reports some of the features being pushed back to next year include a Home screen redesign and changes to CarPlay.

While this story can be interpreted as iOS having its "Snow Leopard" moment, there is an argument to be made, as Stephen Hackett does, that Apple pitched High Sierra in a similar vein—but it hasn't really lived up to that promise.
