Apple’s OS development teams are going to ‘Build Different’
Some say the mantra for agile development is to be sufficiently resolute to move fast and break things. But as enterprises grow, the consequences of doing so become unsustainable – as Apple appears to have learned with iOS 13.
A Bloomberg report claims Apple has changed the way its development teams work in response to a variety of bugs that crept into iOS 13.
It seems that Apple’s engineers have tended to push features into daily builds of the operating systems before they were fully tested. The effect of this was to make test hardware unstable as the OS would end up running a variety of system components, some stable, some not, and some abandoned.
