Apple is doing its best to make its operating system a truly stable and optimized one. After the successful launch of OS X Snow Leopard for Macs back in 2009, the company is currently doing everything it can to address the numerous complaints they have received over the past few years.
Normally, stability is an expected part of Apple’s software. But with the number of iOS releases and newly introduced features, the stability of its operating system has taken a toll on the overall performance of their devices. This is why Apple is currently working on iOS 9, which promises to be more stable than ever before.
Ever since 2007, Apple has continued to produce a major release of the operating system available for their devices such as the iPhone, iPad and iPod touch. Marketing the major iOS changes introduced as a huge reason why users need to switch to new devices, this has always been the case for the company. In 2013, the company was able to completely change the user interface of iOS as it introduced new features such as Control Center and Touch ID. A year later and iOS 8 made a truly revolutionary mark in the iOS market by introducing its refined UI design, adding Apple Pay and Health, and even laying down the groundwork for the upcoming Apple Watch.
With this, iOS 9 looks like it could be in for some challenge as people look forward to new innovations added to it. Codenamed Monarch, the new update has been reported to include a number of under-the-hood improvements. According to sources, engineers working on iOS 9 are currently putting a ‘huge’ focus on maintaining stability, fixing bugs, and even boosting the entire device performance. Instead of delivering on new feature additions, this is something that the team behind the iOS update is working on.
As of this moment, there is still no word on whether or not iOS 9 update will be limited to newer devices. If ever Apple announces that it will be discontinuing its iPhone 5c, fifth-generation iPod touch, and the original iPad mini, the company’s “currently available” devices would be using 64-bit A7, A8 and A9 processors. For both Apple and its many third-party app developers, this could mean a huge improvement.
While iOS 9 promises to deliver a truly stable operating system, there are many that believe this will not be the only feature to be launched. Especially since Apple has expressed that they have been working on a number of new iOS features, these could be available in the next update. Some of these new iOS features could be as big as Transit and Indoor mapping modules. We’ll know for sure what iOS 9 truly promises as soon as it takes center stage on WWDC 2015.
