In recent months, Apple's software development has been called into question like never before. Between a critical security bug in macOS, a brand-new product being launched late and without half of its features enabled, or a throttling feature being snuck into an iOS update, it seems that something is wrong in Apple's development process.

But according to one software engineer who worked on iChat and Maps for years, the problems run deeper than just a lack of focus.
