Apple's iOS 13 update may have been one of the biggest software upgrades the tech giant has released in years.It overhauled nearly every aspect of the operating system - from the color theme to Apple's built-in apps like Notes and Reminders to the way you log into certain apps. It was a huge launch that in some respects filled in the gaps where Apple has been previously falling behind Android, and in other ways pulled ahead of its rival.Advertisement
There isn't much that we know about what Apple could be planning for its annual iPhone software update in 2020. One report from Bloomberg, however, suggests that Apple has made some changes to the way it tests forthcoming iPhone software to avoid the bugs that impacted iOS 13 during its rollout last fall.
Apple hasn't revealed any details about what its next iPhone operating system update will entail, or when it will launch. But the company typically provides an in-depth preview of its new features and improvements during its Worldwide Developers Conference in June before releasing the software in the fall.Apple's software has come a long way in recent years, as the company has improved its own apps and made it easier for third-party developers to plug into various aspects of the operating system, like Siri. But there are still several ways Apple could further improve the iPhone experience.
Here's a look at what we want to see.
