Apple said to overhaul its process of software testing

The buggy mess created by iOS 13 has reportedly forced Apple to overhaul its process of software testing.

According to Bloomberg, Apple recently revealed changes in its internal process which will include using software flags in daily builds of iOS to stabilise future releases. The software flags allow developers to include changes to beta versions that internal testers could switch on, which will help Apple isolate any bad code. The new process will apparently start with iOS 14. 

Apple has struggled for at least three years to improve performance of its software. The iOS 12 update in 2018 was not a major update as Apple focused on its performance. Since iOS 13 was introduced in September, Apple has released 8 software updates to fix major issues such as aggressive killing of background apps and visual glitches.
