According to people familiar with the change, Apple will continue to have an annual release, but engineers will focus on features that will be released over the next two years, allowing them to move out features that aren't flawless yet.

Are you happy with the proposed trade-off of fewer new features in favour of a better, overall platform? In addition to this, Animoji will also feature an extended update for the iPad as well as FaceTime integration. Instead, iOS 12 will bring Apple fans something a lot more important, and it's a "feature" that you might not even notice at first.

According to a new Bloomberg report, the company is extending the release cycle for its iOS software for iPhones and Macs in an effort to quash bugs and improve its apps. According to a recent report from Axios, Apple will be focusing on reliability and performance in iOS 12 rather than new features.

This includes a framework for third parties to develop apps that will work on iOS and macOS devices - part of what was reported on earlier by the outlet's Mark Gurman.

Apple has also recently released features later than it expected, as the rush to meet the annual deadline overtaxed engineers and created last-minute delays.

This functionality will also be folded into Apple's MacOS 10.14 update, codenamed "Liberty", and will see some of Apple's own iPhone apps, including Home, coming to the firm's desktop OS.
