Link: Don’t Review Betas ☍

Shared on August 27, 2018

The Washington Post’s Geoffrey Fowler reviews the new Screen Time features on iOS 12. Despite mentioning that it’s not released yet, he treats it like a finished product. While I wholeheartedly agree that it’s lacking from a parental controls standpoint, it is an initial release and is mostly designed to curtail and analyze usage.

Ultimately, despite Apple and other companies offering public betas, you should never review a beta as a finished product. Even then, you probably shouldn’t double down when people comment on that.
