So guys its been a couple of weeks since the ios 8 beta 1 came,and it has more than 200 hundred features than ios 7.
Apple spent a significant amount of its WWDC 2014 keynote focusing on iOS 8, which takes the flat iOS 7 design and only rounds it out with new features.
That means instead of a dramatic redesign, you can expect this year’s mobile operating system update to tie everything together with the overarching theme of “convergence.”
iOS 8 will feature tighter Mac integration while loosening the restrictions on Apple’s Touch ID fingerprint sensor. New software kits are also bringing once fragmented security and health gadgets together.
While there was no mention of an iPhone 6or an iWatch at this year’s WWDC, Apple seems to be setting the stage for a new wearable device by the time iOS 8 is ready for public release.
Developers can get their hands on iOS 8 right now, but everyone else has to wait a few months for the official release date, estimated to be a little over three months from now.
History has taught us that iOS updates exit beta as soon as the new iPhone is ready to launch, and that has happened in September in years past.
Apple is making quite a few changes in its upgrade to iOS 8, but there’s no reason to think that it won’t be joined by the iPhone 6 and “new product categories” like an iWatch this fall.
What is it? The next iteration of Apple’s mobile platform
When is it out? Probably sometime in September 2014
What will it cost? iOS 8 will be a free download
When it comes to ios 8 compatibility Apple requires an iPhone 4s or newer and iPad 2 or newer to update to the latest software. Only the iPhone 4 is cut from the list.
Both the iPad ini and iPad mini 2 tablets and the forever alone iPod touch 5 gen are also going to work with the new iOS, just like they did with iOS 7. No one besides 2010’s iPhone 4 is left behind.
It’s important to note that all of these iDevices use Bluetooth 4.0, a low-energy version of the antenna that many wearables require for constant syncing.
Is that be an iWatch hint? Maybe. Either way, the compatible iPhones and iPads are powerful enough to handle Bluetooth-connected accessories and durable enough to take on Apple’s tweaked software.
