Google Analytics exposes Apple: iOS 13 Software spotted
In retrospect, it’s safe to say that the different versions of Apple’s iOS 12 software released in the past few months left a lot to be desired. iOS 12.1.1 resulted in 4G data failure for users in several countries, and saw users dealing with constant connection problems and crashes. Upon seeing this Apple decided to act quick and released iOS 12.1.2 a fortnight later; however this attempt at damage control did more harm than good with many a user reporting subsequent total data failure.
Whilst Apple users are currently waiting for the iOS 12.1.3 software to be released after successfully passing the beta test; devices running iOS 13 have already been sighted in the wild. Macrumors reported spotting the new iOS version in its Google Analytics account, as early as October 2018. Furthermore, the website states that the number of devices running iOS software continued to increase in the following months, only suffering a small dip in numbers during the Christmas season. Google Analytics is the tool of choice for many website operators, as it not only enables them to collect significant information about the number of page visits they receive but information about their visitors as well.
Rumor has it that iOS 13 will include more updates and features that cater to iPads than it would for iPhones, with the aim of enhancing and enabling creative work on the tablet. Such features include incorporating tabs in apps or enabling multitasking using split screen mode and multiple side-by-side windows in the same app. Additionally the software is said to contain the features previously announced for iOS 12 such as a redesigned Home Screen and improved photo manageability.
