An irate iPhone owner sent an email to Apple’s Craig Federighi, asking why the update didn’t appear to work. Craig responded very well with detailed information of how it works. Apple, it turns out, released fitness updates in stages in several weeks. Apple’s SVP of Software Technology has explained why the iPhone update feature did not perform as expected for a curious customer.
A user on Reddit sent an email to Craig Federighi asking about Apple’s iOS automation update program, which is going to roll out the latest versions of iOS 15 to users on the best iPhones, including the iPhone 12 and iPhone 13. ‘Kechoopix’ says: Hi. ! I wrote an email to Craig Federighi who is the senior vice president of software technology at Apple to ask him about the details of how an iOS fitness update actually works. I encourage you to ask me after reading some Reddit posts and online reports about customers complaining that the iOS update feature is running slowly (sometimes even every month after the release of their iOS update notified) or not working at all (in my case as well).
The email contains a rather funny subject line ‘iOS update feature (does it even work?). Craig replied: We are rolling out new iOS updates in addition by making them available to those who find them publicly in Settings, and then 1-4 weeks later (after receiving feedback on the update) the ramp is rolling to devices with automatic update enabled.
That means that when Apple releases a software update, some auto-update users can wait up to a month before getting on their iPhones, with the fastest way to publicly update the analog option. As many as a third of people say they share Netflix passwords, according to a new report. The report comes as streams are testing ways for people to add new people to their accounts for a little more than letting them share their accounts for free.
