Apple has been having a lot of problems with iOS lately. Borked updates, code with major bugs, crashes, etc. Apple makes rock solid software and has never had these sorts of problems before. It's odd and troubling. Seems like there is a major issue with QA at Apple. Thoughts?

Update bugs, and silly quirks have been a thing for iOS for as long as I can remember. There's always something that comes up every time they do a major update, and typically, the subsequent updates fix them. I do agree though, that lately there has been a bit more than usual. I've yet to be affected by any of them so it's hard for me to worry at all.

There are always bugs and quirks but not to this degree. I was affected by a few annoying things but nothing major in my time with iOS 11. They were all fixed and fixed fairly quickly to be fair. It's just surprising that the super minor point after point updates (11.2.5) are having these sorts of issues. I might give them some leeway if this was 11.0 but not in a minor update.

Apple's software division has been crazy for the past while. Major bugs in all of their software. It's like they're rushing to meet deadlines.

Right. Definitely seems like it. It's just odd because Apple is known for their refinement and excellent software development.

IOS 11 drives me crazy, my phone is like a snail, not fair for them to do this just so that we buy the newest version. Any chance of them fixing this any time soon?

What bothers me is the lack of effective response to exploits by Cellebrite, GrayShift, and others.  When I look at the articles, this doesn't look like it should be hard to fix.  When I look at the comments by Apple, they sound like the kind of nonsense responses that I get from vendors when they don't want to admit they don't know what to do.  However, when trying to resolve problems, remember the rules of Alcoholics Anonymous: The first step is admitting that you have a problem.

iOS 12 (coming soon) promises to fix the issues of the last release, to include increased battery drain of 11. 

 

We'll soon see if that pans out, I hope so, as my new iPhone SE battery drains kind of fast with iOS 11.4.1. :(

With the release of IOS12 a few days ago I decided to jump right on in and upgrade my iPhone 5SE and iPhone 6 before getting the general upgrade invite. I usually hold back on upgrade preferring to wait until the dust settles and the issues if any are highlighted and sorted by Apple. However this time I was interested to see if the two key headline promises would deliver:

 

1. Major performance and speed improvements for older devices
2. Faster app launch on the iPhone 6 
 

Over the last 4 days I've been using the iPhone 5 as normal and the phone does appear to be more responsive and "smoother" in its operation especially app opening. Battery life appears to be better. For general use (calls, texts, messaging and the usual browser usage I have experienced a slight improvement in battery performance however running power hungry apps especially maps will always eat power so I'm not expecting any major gains overall.

 

Much the same for the iPhone 6. Apps do appear to launch a little faster which maybe due to IOS12 alone or a combination of IOS and app updates that are now coming through as a result of the IOS release.

 

Not a subjective analysis I know however no negatives experienced so far.

I have no issue with iOS update on my IP8 (with latest iOS12). The only problem is the weakness of wireless signal for internet access

Haha, I think so too! Maybe I should call Apple. :bubbles:​
