Rumor: iOS 7 to see significant overhaul, development running behind schedule - Page 3

True, which is why this sounds like it's more about unexpected work:

 

The news article claims that "Apple is struggling to implement the changes on time", which would indicate that there's more that has to be done in the allotted time, than they originally thought.

 

Perhaps they started the changes, then realized that they had to go back and revamp more stock apps than they had expected, so they temporarily shifted other developers over to iOS to help out.

 

Sure wouldn't be the first time someone miscalculated the impact of a software change!

 

(A related possibility, and pretty common to the way Jobs used to do things, is that perhaps Jon Ive has made some last minute tweaks that require extra rewrites.)

I hope they change the whole App versioning system.

 

I mean, it's completely ridiculous that updating an app involves re-downloading the entire program, instead of just patching it. It's a telephone, data's expensive, the only beneficiary of this system is the Telecoms who are paid by the megabyte. Shouldn't a product like a telephone be designed to transfer data as efficiently as possible?

If nothing had been said, WWDC would have come around and people would have been disappointed because something that was never even rumored to happen didn't happen. No one can be pleased by any Apple event at any time.

 

Except the people who don't pay attention to the events and who don't know how stupid analysts are. They just see the new Apple product on shelves and are blown away.

What design? Nothing needs "correcting".

I can't! I get that there's only one team anymore and I understand the benefits of it, but really.

You have no clue what you're talking about whatsoever.

Not in the slightest.

That's what delta updates are for…

And this is Apple's fault or problem how? Use Wi-Fi.

But, iOS 7, like any complex software project, requires birthing hundreds of babies.
