Apple to Focus on Improving Quality of macOS [Report]

Posted January 30, 2018 at 8:24pm by iClarified · 10785 views
Apple is planning to shift focus from developing new features to improving the quality and reliability of macOS, according to a Bloomberg report. This follows an earlier report today from Axios which said the company was doing the same for iOS.

The company told its software engineering groups about the change this month, one of the people said. The shift will also affect this year’s update to Mac computer software, but to a lesser degree, the person said, adding that planned upgrades to Apple Watch and Apple TV software won’t be affected.

macOS has seen its share of issues over the past few months with a major bug letting anyone log in as root without a password, another bug that let you unlock App Store preferences without a password, and the Meltdown and Spectre security vulnerabilities.

It's unclear what upcoming macOS features might get pushed back due to Apple's refocus on reliability. Please follow iClarified on Twitter, Facebook, or RSS for updates.

Yeah, I've had some issues on my Mac... Not too terrible to become unusable, but Apple really needs to go back to the drawer. Another Snow Leopard will be welcome! High Sierra isn't bad, but bugs are increasing... not being fixed meanwhile.

What I'd like to see unless someone else can pull this off is to add the old OS X style especially for the windows of the OS.
