The developers began searching for and correcting defects

A report from Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman says Apple has paused development of new features for its next operating systems (iOS 18 and macOS 15) to put more effort into fixing bugs and improving performance.

According to Gurman, Apple informed employees last week that it would delay software updates for iPhone, iPad and Mac next year to help improve the quality of the firmware amid a rash of bugs in current versions.

Apple admitted too many bugs in its firmware and delayed the development of iOS 18 and macOS 15

The first test version of the M1 Crystal (codenamed iOS and iPadOS 18) and Glow (codenamed macOS 15) firmwares was ready last month. Despite major changes in recent years in the way Apple develops its software, with a focus on quality and preventing new bugs and regressions from being introduced, this early stage was not up to the expected standards.

The development team found too many bugs that were missed during testing and decided to stop work on the second stage (M2) to clean up the code. The pause in new feature development is expected to end this week. The main task of Apple engineers over the past week has not been adding new features, but fixing defects and improving software performance.

The presentation of iOS 18 and macOS 15 is expected at WWDC in June.
