Who is to blame in the failed launch of iOS 8.0.1 28




We all remember the fatal mistake of Apple’s release of iOS 8.0.1 . For the first time the company had to withdraw the software update, and the owners of all new iPhone 6, suspecting nothing, turned their new smartphones in the bricks. Hard to imagine that this could be accused of a single employee, but Bloomberg found guilty in several mistakes companies.

Annoying mistakes related to iOS, Apple has been not so much. The first thing that comes to mind is Maps Apple, which at the time caused a huge number of complaints and ridicule. Later, Tim Cook had to make an official apology to users for the quality of the product, and Scott Forstall and Richard Williamson, who led the work on the cards, left the company. But Josh Williams, though, and stopped work on the cards, but did not work for the company.

Williams began his work at Apple in 2000. After a disastrous start Maps he started testing iOS, according to unnamed sources referenced by Bloomberg. More than a hundred people around the world working for Williams, testing mobile operating system before it comes out. But, as we know, the error, disable the network and sensor Touch ID on the iPhone 6, for some reason, was not detected.

Apple did not give any official comments on the expense of Josh Williams guilty for what happened, and the reason to dump on all charges against him not. However, if an employee is really guilty of two major failures for the company’s personnel decision can truly be called a failure, and a team of testers iOS expect change.
