Apple Inc. (AAPL)’s Slipping Software Standards Is Worrying Developers

Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) is without a doubt the king  in the hardware space, clearly depicted by a string of iPhones and an exquisite line of iPads that over the years have lighted up the tech space. The Cupertino-based company may, on the other hand, be struggling on the software front according to the Irish Times, especially on synchronizing the sending of messages across OS X on Macs and iOS on mobile devices.

Concerns are already being raised as to why messages sent between iPhones are never synchronized on user’s iPads and MacBook.  It was highly expected that engineers at Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) would have detected this issue, rectified it with speed before concerns mounted more pressure on the company

Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) users are also raising concerns with regards to the functionality of the Message App icon that always insists that a number of messages have not yet been read, yet they might have been read in another device. WhatsApp, unlike Apple, is already winning the battle of synchronizing messages across millions of devices across the globe, much to the surprise of developers in the tech space.

Messages synchronization might not be the only challenge facing the Cupertino-based company. Concerns are ripe in the air with regards to the latest upgrade of the OS X that has resulted in a string of pervasive Wi-Fi challenges much to the uproar of many people. Sluggish iOS performance on a number of devices also continues to raise unending concerns.

Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL)’s declining software credibility has in the recent past seen renowned Tumblr and Instapaper developer,  Marco Arment, air a scathing attack on how Apple has lost its functional high ground in terms of software quality. A poor user-interface design, as well as a series of debilitating bugs, are some of the issues that the developer continues to question.

OS X Yosemite is already seen as the least stable and buggiest in the company’s ten years of developing the platform. Prominent developer, Craig Hockenberry, has also aired his concerns about the depreciating software quality at Apple pointing out that in the past, the company would not have shipped a device that had a series of hitches.

Slipping software standards have mostly been attributed to Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) shifting attention to marketing rather than ensuring everything is in order in terms of quality.
