Summary

But with no iPhones announced this week, Apple instead pushed these updates only one day after the event and one day before the new Apple Watch and eighth-generation iPad are expected to end up in users' hands.iOS 14 brings major new features to the home screen and app management experience for the iPhone, with support for the home screen widgets that were introduced in iPadOS last year and a new App Library view that allows for easier managing of all installed apps on one panel. The golden master is intended to be an almost-exact-match with the final public release of the operating system, specifically for this purpose of testing and submission.But with the timing of these launches, developers had less than a full day with the golden master before the public release, leading to many late nights, delayed releases, and vocal frustration.Amidst the chaos, Apple published a note to its developer portal yesterday imploring developers to "Make sure your apps are ready when iOS 14 and iPadOS 14 become available to customers worldwide." That note came with no acknowledgement that, for many, that would be nigh impossible given the timeframe.For that reason, users should expect to see more issues with third-party apps in iOS 14 and iPadOS 14 at launch, and they should expect some updates related to the new release to come several days later than usual this year.As always, we are working on a review of the new release—expect to see our review of iOS 14 and iPadOS 14 late next week.You must login or create an account to comment.Join the Ars Orbital Transmission mailing list to get weekly updates delivered to your inbox.
