Why iOS 13 updates come out so often, and that’s good

Only on September 19, Apple released iOS 13 , as iOS 13.1 comes out almost immediately . A few days later – iOS 13.1.1 , and today iOS 13.1.2 saw the light of day .

In 2 weeks, the Cupertinians rolled out as many as four full releases. Doesn’t bother me? Perhaps we know what this is connected with.

There are too many bugs in iOS 13

iOS 13 has become the most buggy operating system since iOS 8, as the famous developer Steve Troughton-Smith spoke about on his Twitter not so long ago . A huge number of errors were found in the OS code, some of which even open up serious vulnerabilities.

Recall the last 10 days:

▪️ iOS 13 bug gives third-party keyboards full access to the system without permission

▪️ Reader found a strange bug in iOS 13.1.1, leading to a reboot

▪️ Users complain about broken Internet in iOS 13

▪️ Fortnite and PUBG do not work on iOS 13

And this is only a small part. At various forums, users also complained about problems with Bluetooth, CarPlay, arbitrary switching between light and dark themes, Wi-Fi errors and much more.

Or another, more obvious example:

Updates are released so quickly that Apple employees do not even have time to translate the list of innovations. A bold example is iOS 13.1.2. On the Apple website, in general, the latest current version is iOS 13.1 :

Apple is trying to fix all errors as soon as possible

Apparently, such frequent updates are aimed at quickly closing all vulnerabilities and correcting errors made by programmers during the development of iOS 13.

For this reason, iOS 13.1 was released on September 24 instead of the 30th. Subsequent updates also come out. The company hastened with the release of the operating system, fixing the main critical bugs, and decided to fix the rest with later firmware.

On the one hand, it’s bad that we got a raw OS. On the other hand, it’s good that the Cupertinians are trying to fix everything in a short time.

I am glad that the company wants to rectify the situation and is promptly responding to community feedback. This is not Android, in which minor bug fixes can be expected for months.
