Apple’s iOS 18 to have major new features, designs, and performance improvements in 2024
According to a newsletter by Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman, Apple has internally referred to the upcoming iOS 18 as “ambitious and compelling,” with the goal to ship “major new features and designs” alongside significant improvements in performance and security.
Despite a recent pause in feature development for iOS 18, the one-week break is not expected to significantly postpone the ultimate release of the software. However, it may slightly reduce the time available at the end of the development cycle to eliminate any last-minute glitches. The public release of iOS 18 is anticipated at WWDC 2024, which is still seven months away.
The last major update to the iPhone was iOS 14 in 2020, which added support for Home Screen widgets. With that in mind, the tech community is eagerly anticipating the major new features and designs that iOS 18 will bring in 2024.
Gurman also mentioned that the next version of the iPhone and iPad software could be relatively groundbreaking, following a few years of more modestly sized updates. This includes not only new features and designs, but also improvements in security and performance.
With specific details on new features currently unclear, there is much speculation and anticipation from users about what iOS 18 will bring next year. Apple’s repeated emphasis on the “ambitious and compelling” nature of the update has certainly piqued the interest of tech enthusiasts and iPhone and iPad users alike.
With the release of iOS 18 still several months away, there is plenty of time for speculation and discussion. Users are invited to share their wishlist for iOS 18 and whether they are hoping for a wave of new features and design changes, or a focus on bug fixes and quality control. The anticipation for the release of iOS 18 in 2024 is certainly building up within the tech community.
