I was making a reference to the recent Apple patch that disabled the phone on the iPhone. http://support.apple.com/kb/DL...?
This release contains improvements and bug fixes, including: Fixes an issue in iOS 8.0.1 that impacted cellular network connectivity and Touch ID on iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus
On their new flagship phones for iOS8. If Apple devs were really that thorough, I doubt that would have passed the first round of tests. On the other hand, I've noticed patches on RHEL take longer to release than Ubuntu which take longer than other Linux distros. But I'm not sure OSX is delayed due to rigorous testing.
Because no linux distro ever releases a patch with bugs... right?
Anyway. I said the process might have to be more rigorous. I didn't say it was flawless. And the whole 8.0.1 debacle only adds to my point. A patch can sometimes do more damage that what it's trying to fix. Better to take a couple extra days to get it right than to get it out as quickly as possible but screw it up.
