Some latest reports suggest that Apple has started working on iOS 12 as well as macOS 10.14. Both the testing and development process is being carried out in full swing. Per the reports, visits from iOS 12 and macOS 10.14 machines went up significantly this week. Engineers of Apple have this tendency to check various sites in order to test out internal seeds by using devices running pre-release firmware and operating systems.
Before the release of each OS, Apple conducts this type of assessment. The main motivation behind this is to figure out which type of engineering and design resources should be suitable for the flagship software operating systems, which are scheduled to release in upcoming years. Because of this, these new firmware identifiers keep popping up in the log section of such sites. The number of devices becomes hundreds as it comes close to the month of March. The same old protocol has been kept repeating this year also.
It is to be noted that these tests we were talking about are not fixed within websites; Apple also has some apps on their bucket list for this purpose. Some developers of top apps also have attested the same. In order to stay away from crashes within the app, the usage of special code paths in UIkit and Appkit can be seen frequently.
On the very first day of Apple’s Worldwide Developer Conference, which is to be held on 5th June, the first look of the OS will be revealed. However, the first beta 1 of iOS 12 is released to developers and for public use is expected around the Middle of May.
