iOS 8 annouced at Apple’s 2014 WWDC
The Cupertino, California tech giant has unveiled the 8th generation of their legendary mobile platform.
The iOS 8, which comes barely 6 months after the iOS 7 was released, was built to interact very well with Apple’s new desktop OS for computers which they call OS X Yosemite.
iOS 8 brings support for iCloud Drive, a service that will allow you save you files in the clouds, and allow you to acess them from any of your iOS devices.
On the iOS 8, Apple added ‘blocks’ which is called widgets on Android. So now iOS users can add floating clocks and customized picture frames…in the notification center — not even on the home screen of their phone.
Apple got more open with the iOS 8. Users can install third-party keyboard apps now. Meanwhile the default keyboard is smarter now with the iOS 8.
The iOS 8 will be available for the iPhone 4S, 5, 5S and 5C come this spring. The Apple iPad 2 and all other tablets released after it will get the OS while the iPod Touch 5 will also get the upgrade.
