iOS 18 features that WON'T arrive this fall.

In partnership with

Come the fall, Apple will launch new versions of its operating systems to us users — iOS 18, iPadOS 18 and macOS Sequoia.

But a surprising number of new features that Apple heralded at WWDC24 won’t be available at launch.

There’s a raft of nifty stuff that won’t arrive until late 2024 — or even early 2025.

Here’s what we’ll likely be missing.

One more thing ...

I've read something that Bill Gates said about six months ago. He said, 'I worked really, really hard in my 20s.' And I know what he means, because I worked really, really hard in my 20s, too. Literally, you know, seven days a week, a lot of hours every day. And it actually is a wonderful thing to do, because you can get a lot done. But you can't do it forever, and you don't want to do it forever, and you have to come up with ways of figuring out what the most important things are and working with other people even more.
