Updated 02/12/18: A report from Bloomberg echos previous rumors that iOS 12 will have fewer new features, focusing on stability and performance. It notes that animoji will come to FaceTime, Siri will be more deeply integrated into the OS, and Do Not Disturb mode will get a few tweaks.
It’s rare that Apple fans cheer a lack of new features in an upcoming product, but that may be the case with the next round of iPhone updates. After a flurry of embarrassing bugs in this year’s release of iOS, Apple is reportedly scaling back its plans for iOS 12 as it shifts its focus to quality and performance. And iPhone users should applaud this decision.
