Low-Level Apple Employee Is Behind iOS iBoot Source Code Leak, Reports Say

Further reports from Bloomberg suggests that the new features are being made as a part of the software release which is now codenamed as "Peace". Apple is also planning to bring Animoji to FaceTime, allowing you to place them over your face - sort of like the filters and lenses already available in popular social apps, such as Snapchat, Facebook, and Instagram.

Despite earlier rumors that Apple intends to focus primarily on improving quality and stability of its operating systems, a new round of rumors from Bloomberg suggests iOS 12 won't be completely devoid of new features.

The move to delay some new features follows iPhone sales dipping in the last three months of 2017, although Apple - which is the most valuable company in the world - still pulled in record revenues. The most prominent change is perhaps the Universal Apps feature, which will allow a single set of apps to work on iPhones, iPads and Macs.

Apple is expected to discuss more on iOS 12 later this year at WWDC, and we'll see just what features Apple does debut. "The renewed focus on quality is created to make sure the company can fulfill promises made each summer at the annual developers conference and that new features work reliably and as advertised", according to the report. Rather, according to Axios and Bloomerg's recent reports, the update will mainly be about repairing bugs and stabilization, among others.

Apple will reportedly merge its iOS and Mac App Stores so that users can buy an app once and run it across devices. Apple is also working to integrate Siri into the iPhone search view, redesigning the interface to import photos onto an iPad, and making it possible for several people at once to play augmented reality games. Internally speculated to be known as "Peace", what will later most likely become iOS 12, is expected to be released in September of 2018. Good things come to those who wait. Instead, he says, the reported change in its software focus isn't a reaction to outside criticism, but simply what any big tech company needs to do after a few years of building out its core product. Meaning, instead of pressuring engineers to meet the deadline, "Apple will start focusing on the next two years of updates for its iPhone and iPad operating system", Bloomberg said citing people familiar with the change. Unlike Google, which introduces new capabilities in a piecemeal fashion as individual apps are updated, Apple goes for an all-or-nothing approach.
