The lag of the software products of Apple from their hardware “stuffing” the biggest problem the company has faced in recent years, says Ming-Chi Kuo, a leading analyst at KGI Securities. According to him, in Cupertino dropped the pace so much that even Chinese smartphone manufacturers managed to catch up with them.
First of all, writes Kuo in his report, the lag is manifested in the example of ARKit. “Oppo managed to catch up with Apple’s platform [дополненной реальности] in just 6-9 months. This is confirmed by the fact that the extended version of the game Honor of Kings is compatible not only with the iPhone, but also unlike the more affordable Oppo smartphones, “Kuo says.
However, the matter is not even in the success of competitors, but in the absence Apple has an incentive to create a really cool and “heavy” application to realize the potential of ARKit. To maintain its credibility, Kuo believes, Apple should offer users the most attractive titles with augmented reality before everyone else.
Vulnerabilities iOS and macOS
A significant number of bugs and flaws were also revealed after the release of iOS 11 and macOS High Sierra. Both OSs suffered from vulnerabilities of varying degrees, but especially Kuo noted the problems of the desktop version. To fix everything that has accumulated over the years of developer negligence, will allow only the promised cultural shift.
