If this is true, then I consider this a welcome change from Apple. I wrote about Apple's lack of frequency for iOS updates a while back. Since iOS 4, we have not seen a great deal of feature addition to iOS between the major version leaps.
After the bumps this past week with iOS 8.0.1's release and subsequent retraction, then iOS 8.0.2 being rushed to fix the damage, I'm ready for Apple to slow down on the software side of things and make sure they are refining like crazy. More frequent updates between the major version numbers is entirely welcome.
