iOS rumored to receive ‘Snow Leopard’ moment »

Mark Gurman:

Following the success of OS X Snow Leopard for Macs in 2009, one of iOS 9’s standout ‘features’ will be a directed focus on stabilizing and optimizing the operating system. While stability is normally an expected component in Apple software rather than a marquee feature, the rapid pace of iOS releases and feature introductions has taken a toll on the operating system’s overall performance, recently leading to numerous complaints from long-time Apple users and regular customers alike.

While mobile operating systems of today move faster than desktop operating systems of 2009, I think this is a good move if true. I don’t expect iOS 9 to be launched under the same “No New Features!” banner as Snow Leopard was, but a focus on stability would be more than welcome, and not just to nerds.
