IOS 12 to keep iPhone promises, not bait Android

We now know why an Apple employee decided to leak secret iPhone code

Apple confirms iPhone source code leak

Apple apparently wants all this chaos to end as much as its fans do, which is why it's apparently made a decision to focus on 2 years of phased updates to the iPhone and iPad.

Are you happy with the proposed trade-off of fewer new features in favour of a better, overall platform? Reports by various outlets have drawn attention to the necessity of Apple going back to the basics and focus on what their iOS has always been known for: stability and performance.

Bloomberg describes the shift as "an admission of what many customers have already come to notice: Some Apple software has become prone to bugs and underdeveloped features".

Although Apple is shifting its focus to improving the quality of its software, it still has some key features planned for release this fall, reports Bloomberg.

iOS 12 is still expected to include some new features, however, including Animoji in FaceTime, which will allow you to put a virtual poo over your face during video calls.

Major assault launched against IS in Egypt
IS started to scale up its attacks in Sinai from September 2017 onwards, as it started losing territory in Iraq and Syria. Last year, militants attacked a Sufi mosque in the region, killing 311 worshipers.

Trial begins for Palestinian accused of assaulting Israeli soldiers
She was denied bail at her hearing last month, with the prosecution arguing that she was unsafe and posed a risk of absconding. His daughter was reportedly upset when she approached the two soldiers and began slapping and kicking them.

For years, Apple has stuck to a strict schedule of annual iOS releases that sport a sometimes dizzying array of new capabilities.

Due this summer in beta form, iOS 12 will bring over a highly anticipated feature that has been rumored for quite a while now, though there will be a big caveat. The company will, however, introduce some new Augmented Reality (AR) and health-related features in iOS 12.

Apple's next major update to iOS, iOS 12, will push it closer to MacOS by offering developers the ability to create iPhone apps that will also run on Apple's desktop operating system. The Animoji characters will also come to the iPad, with the company reportedly working on a model of the tablet with a Face ID camera. Apple might also wait on rolling out some new Apple Pencil features, as well as a new toggle in the email app to mute threads. The company has faced criticism lately for various software issues or feature delays, with many wondering where its near-perfect software experiences of the past are no more. Federighi's team will have more time to develop new features and work on under-the-hood improvements without being forced to follow a checklist of features so Apple could herald massive year-over-year leaps in terms of software.

However, Apple may try to get out of the puddle in which she sat, and make iOS 12 is really reliable. Additional iPad software upgrades aren't expected until 2019 but they include a feature that would let you run several windows in one app and click between them like tabs in a web browser and a feature that lets two screens from one app run side by side.
