Former Apple iOS Engineer Explains How the iPhone Ended Up So Full of Bugs
Previously praised for its refined software performance, the iPhone has been the subject of massive criticism lately, mostly following more or less controversial decisions made by Apple in the last 12 months.
Leaving the battery fiasco aside, the user experience on an iPhone has been a roller coaster ride due to the performance of iOS 11.
Often described as the buggiest version of the mobile OS, iOS 11 caused a wide variety of problems on devices that installed it, including lag, freezes, app crashes, battery drains, and others.
And while Apple hasn’t discussed these problems too much, a former iOS engineer took to reddit to explain how the platform ended up being so full of bugs at a time when it was actually supposed to lead the market in terms of reliability and performance.
