Apple Delays New iOS Features to Focus On Stability

In a report today, Apple is changing it's 2018 strategy for iOS in order to focus on performance and quality issues. Software head Craig Federighi announced the revised plan to employees at a meeting earlier this month, planning to make iPhones more responsive and less prone to issues. The features reportedly getting delayed until 2019 are a home screen refresh, changes to the in-car user interface, improvements to core apps such as Mail, and updates to the camera, photo-editing and sharing features.

While I completely agree focusing on performance and security is paramount, the planned features that are getting delayed are fairly important as well. One would assume that Apple has enough staff to do both and not put off feature updates for a year.
