I agree with John Gruber on the iOS 13/13.1 shenanigans that happened this week:

Basically, I think we need to get used to WWDC announcements being a roadmap for the next year of OS releases, not a list of what’s going to ship in the initial dot-zero release in the fall.

So... Show the roadmap at WWDC, ship a subset in September, then continue shipping features and APIs throughout the year. I think it'd be good for the platform, and it'd be good for developers as it would eventually reduce the need to rush through every summer implementing this year's new features while they are all in beta. It might mean that that WWDC week (after the keynotes) would need a shake up, but that wouldn't be the end of the world.

The most important part of this though that postponing features just a couple of weeks before developers were about to ship apps using them really isn't ideal. That's not news to anyone at Apple of course, and I know these decisions are not made lightly. But for the roadmap approach to actually work, we'd need to be told about the year's plan in advance.

I hope it's not too chaotic inside the spaceship right now, and I wish everyone working on the new releases good luck, no matter what makes it into the dot zero. 🀞
