Recently Apple sneakily launched its own Wordle-esque word game and so far, it's received mixed reviews. Quartiles is an iOS 17.5 beta feature available for Apple News+ subscribers, giving users an unexpected (and arguably less functional) alternative to the New York Times game, Wordle. 

It seems that Apple is giving us everything but significant innovation after the latest iPhone 15's biggest change was a different charging port. While the Apple rumour mill keeps whispering the promise of AI advancements, so far the evidence suggests that we're a little way off from top-notch integrated AI in our next iOS update.
