Earlier this week, the tech giant released iOS 12, the most recent installment of its mobile operating system.
In its own investigation into iOS 12.1, Apple-tracking site 9to5Mac found a new daemon in iOS called "avatarsd".
Now it's been claimed that the latest version of the software which powers iPhones and iPads has opened up a rare window to reveal details of a new gadget Apple is planning to release in the near future. If so, what are they?
As reported by developer Guilherme Rambo, now of 9to5Mac, the iOS 12.1 developer beta 1 comes with an "iPad2018Fall" identifier. The app is used to ease the setup process of a new Apple device, and the fresh development means that it is being updated to help users how to use the new gestures on a new iPad model that is launching soon.
Usually, those working on a project like to have accurate dimensions and distances to work with, and one of the examples cited by Kirk was 20% off. Apple might have to go back to the drawing board and send out an update to fix the app as others are also noticing how inaccurate Measure can be. The promise of improved performance on dated hardware is tough to resist although data thus far shows that Apple device users are taking a reserved approach compared to previous years. Many had hoped that the iPhone Xs, iPhone Xs Max, and iPhone XR would ship with landscape Face ID, but that didn't happen. He also pointed out an option for a virtualized 4K external display for the iPad Pro in Apple's iOS simulator.
