WWDC 2014: iOS 8 Officially Announced

Apple have officially unveiled iOS 8.

During his keynote at WWDC 2014, CEO Tim Cook took the stage to announce the company’s latest mobile operating system.

It is not quite the leap that we had from iOS 6 to iOS 7, but there are still some significant changes, including a lot more interactivity with the new version on OS X, as well as a host of developer features.

One of the headline features is interactive notifications, which will enable response to notifications – such as text messages and even being able to ‘like’ or comment on Facebook messages – from directly in the pull-down notification shade.

iOS 8 will also feature a much-improved on-screen keyboard, with improved recognition service allowing more accurate predictive text. Android users will be able to attest to it’s usefulness.

Calls and texts – old-fashioned actions on smartphones these days – are also getting an upgrade treatment regarding cross-device connectivity. It will now be possible to receive a message or a call to your iPhone on your iPad or Mac. The ability to send and receive SMS text messages on your other Apple devices is a welcome addition.

Full details of the main features in iOS 8 can be found at Apple’s website.

iOS 8 will be available in the Autum, for the iPhone 4S and higher, the 5th generation iPod touch, and the iPad 2 and newer. Developers, however, will have access to the iOS 8 beta and SDK today.
