Apple Engineers Looking Into Multi-user Support for iOS, Calls It a ‘Known Issue’
Submitted by lalit on May 8, 2012 - 8:03am.
A developer, who submitted a suggestion for multi-user support in iOS to Apple’s Bug Reporter system, got a surprising email back from Apple saying the issue is “currently being investigated”. Developers can not only use the Bug Report system in iOS for submitting bugs, but also for making suggestions for new features in iOS.
This developer simply suggested that Apple add support for multiple users to the iPad operating system so that various people in a family can use the device. To his request Apple replied “After further investigation it has been determined that this is a known issue, which is currently being investigated by engineering.”
The developer told AppleInsider “they have often used Apple's Bug Reporter to submit requests for new features. However, this standard form letter is the first time that Apple has actually responded to such a submission from this particular developer”.
This email doesn’t mean that we will definitely get multi-user support in iOS 6, but it is a good indication that Apple is listening to developers and is ready to act on suggestions from developer community.
