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

Apple confirms iPhone source code leak An Intern At Apple Stole And Then Leaked Critical iPhone Source Code, Says Report

Gizbot reports that the upcoming Apple iOS 12 will bring various features, including the capability of running the iPhone apps on the Mac devices.

According to the Bloomberg article, the only feature to expect on the iPad in iOS 11 is for Apple's Animoji characters to arrive on the iPad (which would match with rumors suggesting that Face ID is coming to the tablet).

According to recent reports from Axios and Bloomberg, Apple is reinventing its iPhone software technology after 10 years by focusing on the performance of the new iOS.

The Do Not Disturb feature is also reported to be getting an upgrade, with new improvements that will expand a user's control over what notifications they want to receive and when. Apple launches an upgrade to its mobile operating system iOS at its annual developers event WWDC held in June every year.

Apple Inc. has reportedly made a decision to slow down its annual software updates for iOS and macOS and instead will spread out new features over the next two years. The more interesting addition is group chat, a feature Apple introduced years ago with the Mac video calling app iChat, but removed - and never restored - when it introduced FaceTime for iOS devices.

Traditionally, Apple has released major iOS updates on an annual cycle. Changes that have been postponed reportedly include a revised iPhone home screen design and new options in the Photos app. Apple will instead polish the features which do get included, instead of committing to a massive list of new things so it can keep claiming year-over-year functionality jumps.

Apple is slowing the pace on iOS updates, with the Cupertino firm allegedly opting to get absolutely right a smaller number of changes in its flagship iPhone software. Internally speculated to be known as "Peace", what will later most likely become iOS 12, is expected to be released in September of 2018. The report also pointed to some new iOS 11 (pictured above) features that rolled out later than planned last fall.

Bloomberg's Mark Gurman details what Apple has in store for users waiting for the next big software update. Unlike Google, which introduces new capabilities in a piecemeal fashion as individual apps are updated, Apple goes for an all-or-nothing approach. For those who experienced serious glitches and bugs in their iPhones during the last few months, such as a complete crash or incapability to answer a call, this news may come as a relief.
