Apple hasn’t completely fixed a serious macOS leak with Internet shortcuts – Computer
Historically, Apple and testing has been a terrible combination. Especially nowadays. I don’t know why this mess, maybe a budget problem or a lack of knowledge. But if you dig a little deeper into the Tweakers archive, you’ll find Apple dimples in iOS or macOS almost every week. All of the drama surrounding iOS 12 has also been caused by the lack of testing for some very obvious issues. Initially, Apple designed the software quite aggressively in terms of engineering. Although it was not their choice, it automatically came with an (open source) rule selected for them. Once they model things on their own, on top of that, you’ll notice that things don’t go very well there either. Safari built into the operating system is a very stupid choice that everyone at Microsoft has learned not to make. Android doesn’t either. However, Apple does. Ditto for iMessage then without sandbox too. A hole in iMessage / Safari and your system is completely open.
If you take a little look at the history of issues with iOS and macOS and follow the Apple forum or work for a company that primarily works with Macs, you will run into some issues. There are always these obvious problems.
As if it was difficult to verify this in at least one other language.
Never restart during testing?
Too bad the result is not yet visible. But they also indicate that something is wrong.
I mean, how rare is daylight saving time really?
Low disk space is a pretty obvious potential problem, isn’t it?
What basic functions should you test to do such functionality well?
The error doesn’t have much of an impact, but that’s literally all this function has to do, and it’s never examined, just output?
Isn’t that kind of one of the first test cases you offer?
There were a lot more problems than that. Macbooks suddenly crashing on external display after updating to Sierra or any other version. Like they never connected any external monitors at Apple, something with a clear file password in the logs and other stupid stuff.
Bugs always can. There is no perfect program and so on. But the obvious bullshit that happens at Apple every time casts doubt on their effectiveness in testing. Maybe they should save a little more money and invest more in a better way of development and testing.
After years at Apple, I’m completely done with their jokes. They have a lot more bugs than Windows or even Android, with a lot less devices to support. It’s impossible.
