A recent report from Bloomberg shows that there’s a new process that Apple will use with the app developers to make sure that they can test the features before a major update happens. The issue that Apple encountered with iOS 13 was that developers left features in the app that were either unfinished or full of bugs, which caused the system to crash constantly. So right now, Apple is implementing a new process for developers to finish iOS 14.
The entire idea is to allow unfinished features to be disabled by the default system, so the test build of iOS could work without any error or problems. This allows the company to have a more productive testing period between the releases of the builds. This new change will also apply to the future releases of watchOS, macOS, iPadOS, and tvOS.
Apple to use a new development technique for iOS 14
As per an insider, daily builds were similar to a recipe with many cooks who added different ingredients. Testers would actually go days without a usable build, which means that they didn’t have to handle what was working and what was not working.
The iOS 13 operating system was released in September this year, and the first wave of the software, which came once with the iPhone 11 series, was full of bugs, crashes, and glitches. The reason behind all of these problems were the developers who used to add different features all at once, even if they were not finished, or if they were still full of bugs. Then, testers simply tried to run daily builds of the software, which was unfinished, and the software was simply unusable. We are hoping that this new method will work great for Apple and the upcoming iOS 14!
