HomePod Software Updates Will Happen Over-the-Air Like Apple Watch

But it looks like the Cupertino-based tech firm is adopting the macOS update strategy as it is said to skip some new features in the upcoming "iOS 12" and focus exclusively on making it more stable release.

Axios reported Apple Senior Vice President of Software Engineering Craig Federighi announced the priority shift to employees earlier in the month.

Burning Stock on the move: Western Digital Corporation (NASDAQ:WDC)

Apple has never had a good time with iOS in recent times, despite still being a great mobile operating system, iOS 11 has faced numerous problems since its release, such as bricking older iPhones with new software updates, slowing down iPhones for a degrading battery and more. While new AR and health features as well as plans to integrate Mac and iOS apps together will be in the iOS 12 update, a redesigned home screen and updates to the picture-taking process and bundled apps like Mail will be put off until next year's update. At launch it won't support stereo pairs or multi-room audio; however, the site notes that Apple appears to have hardcoded iOS 11.3 as the first version to support stereo pairing.

IOS 12 is likely to be announced during Apple's WWDC, which typically takes place in June and is when Apple usually announces its new version of iOS. We've contacted Apple for a comment.
