Eight 'iOS 12' stories

January 2018 - May 2018

iOS 12 will reportedly be a rather small release in comparison to previous iOS releases. Dubbed the Snow Leopard release, Apple is slated to focus on bug fixes and stability improvements in this release.

Check out the latest news and concepts for iOS 12:

Apple has reportedly shelved may major features that was originally slated for iOS 12, such as a redesigned Home screen for the iPhone X, CarPlay updates, and major updates to Mail, Camera, and Photos. Instead, iOS 12 will feature augmented reality improvements, health features and improved parental controls.

The focus on stability instead of packing tons of new features is mainly due to the bugginess and endless issues Apple has been trying to deal with on its platforms as of late. Despite this, Apple is reportedly still on schedule to unify iOS and macOS apps.

The release is similar to OS X’s Snow Leopard on the Mac, as the main focus of that release was also stability and performance enhancements. To this day, many customers still consider Snow Leopard as Apple’s best operating system for having rock solid performance without much bugs.
