- In 2024, Apple plans to deliver the iOS 18 upgrade.
- Reports state that a significant change is expected with iOS 18.
- AI elements are anticipated to be included in the next iOS 18.
To fix bugs in the existing version, tech giant Apple temporarily stopped working on iOS 18. In spite of this, there are no signs that the next generation software’s release date will be delayed.
According to a recent rumor, iOS 18 is expected to be a major update that includes various artificial intelligence (AI) technologies in an effort to make up for the lack of significant hardware advancements in the upcoming iPhone models. Here are some further details regarding the impending iOS 18, which is the iOS 17’s replacement.
Details of iOS 18
- 2024 is probably when the next Apple iOS 18 upgrade will be made available.
- Analyst Mark Gurman said in a Bloomberg report that since the iPhone 16’s hardware won’t see any major improvements the next year, the iOS 18 update needs to be remarkable.
- According to the source, the corporation is attempting to stay up with Google and OpenAI in the field of generative AI, and iOS 18 will bring this capability to the iPhone.
- As previously said, watchOS 11, iPadOS 18, and macOS 15 are anticipated to release alongside iOS 18.
- Senior management at Apple has stated internally that their next operating systems will have a lot of new features and designs in addition to performance and security enhancements.
According to the research, Apple reorganized its processes in 2019—the last major adjustment it made. There were significant delays in features and bug fixes during that time, which caused new iPhones to have malfunctions on the day of release.
Due to quality concerns, Apple’s senior vice president of software engineering, Craig Federighi, had to postpone a few features from iOS 12 to iOS 13. This time, Apple is apparently putting more of an emphasis on quality to guarantee a flawless launch experience for users.
The company’s development cycle consists of four stages, which come to a head in June with the Worldwide Developers Conference. Of these, two are devoted to bug fixes, while four are devoted to the introduction of new features. Every milestone lasts for six weeks, but this time the business took a break after the first one to give itself an extra week to work out any kinks.
