iOs 8, features and news :
The iOs 8 is the latest version of iphone,which was released by the Apple Inc, on September 17, 2014.The company of Apple spend a significant of its WWDC 2014 keynote focusing on iOs 8.which takes the flat of iOs 7 design and only rounds it out with new features. it means instead of Dramatic redesign,you can expect this year mobile operating system update’s to tie everything together with overarching theme of CONVERGENCE.while there was no mention of iphone 6 or any device of iphone at this year’s WWDC,Apple seems to be setting the position(or)stage for new version’al device phone iOs 8,And it was public released. iOs 8 will feature tighter Mac integration while loosening the restrictions on Apple’s Touch ID finger print sensor. new software kits are also bringing once fragmented security and health gadgets together. iOs 8 was added by some new features which are developed by Apple developers.
The compatibility of iOs 8 :
When we comes in to iOs 8 compatibility,Apple requires an iPhone 4s or newer and ipad 2 or newer to update to the latest software.but only iphone 4 is cutted from the list.both the iPads mini and iPads mini 2 tablets and forever alone ipod touch 5th generation are also going to work with the newer or latest iOs, just like they did with iOs 7. NO one besides 2010’s iphone 4 is left behind.
its an important to note that all of these iDevices use the Bluetooth 4.0,a lower energy version of antenna that may wearables for constant syncing.the compatible of iphones and ipads are powerful enough to handle Bluetooth-connected accessories and durable enough to take on Apple’s tweaked software.
How to download iOs 8 beta :
iOs 8 beta 3 is ready to download right now.but it’s locked behind Apple developer program that costs $99 a year.that’s a small price to pay for app developers who are making money,but it’s not meant for curious Apple fans looking for early upgrade to new features.The Apple fans are excited to upgrade the features of iOs. they always being waited to the upgrades.
Touch ID of All :
Apple’s fingerprint scanner has been limited by passing the lock screen and buying itunes store content.but iOs 8 changes all of that as app developers get access to the five-digit login tool.All sorts of apps will be able to use the biometric scanning home button instead of pesky passcodes. so far this only applies to the iphone 5s,but the Touch ID is likely to come to the iphone 6,ipad Air 2 and ipad mini 3 later this year.
iOs 8 camera :
you believe it or not,The iphone is consistently the most used camera in the world.it’s in so many hands and so easy to use. In iOs 8,the camera app is going to get even better.Apple has added a time lapse camera mode to iOs 8 beta 1 in order to help users to capture their extended moments and automatically speed up the video with the higher frame rate. iOs 8’s time lapse mode is basically the opposite of the slow motion video recording option at “one twenty frames per second” that was added to iOs 7 to last year.
Phone calls and SMS on Mac :
iMessages has been a wonderful cross-compatible tool for chatting on iOs devices and macs.Apple deserters,however may be lured back to iOs 8 with SMS and voice calls being folded into Macs and iPads,just like blue imessages currently pop up on Apple tablets and computers.it’s a pain to have to fetch your phone for a single SMS from an Andriod user,especially when you’re sitting in front of a 13-inch Mac book Air screen that’s fully capable for handling text messages and phone calls.of course,enabling text messages and phone calls to a Mac requires upgrading it to the newly announced OS X Yosemite,but that’s a piece of cake since it’ll be the free and arrive around the same time as iOS 8.
WIFI hotspot and Handoff :
iOS 8 and OS X Yosemite are going to be joined at the hip with the Handoff feature. Handoff feature is nothing but it is a new feature which makes it easy to switch between devices without loosing your work.
starting a project or email on an iPad or iphone will let you finish the task on a Mac with no annoying overlap.There’s no need to reopen windows or rewrite text on the computer.And it works going to the other way too.what if you don’t have access to the internet on your computer or iPad to get the job done?? That’s where the instant Hotspot feature will come into play, easing the messy personal Hotspot setup of iOs 7.The feature is enabled by default after your update iOs device(s) to iOs 8,but should not run into trouble with getting into the work,you can find its control switch in iOs settings>General>Handoff and Suggested Apps.Toggling a feature off then back on is always a good starting point for troubleshooting.
switching between Devices :
OK, Now all of the sounds nice.but how do you use it? Well,once your devices are all synced up(it can take some time after upgrading to iOs 8 for this to happen) you will begin seeing compatible App icons appear on your lock screen or as an extra pane in app switcher.The icons will directly relate to whatever app your using.Sliding up the app icon from the lock screen,or selecting the pane in the app switcher,on your secondary device will launch the app.
Group messages with voice and video :
Group messages is also being enhanced for iOs 8 thanks to new feature.you’ll be able to add and drop people from conversations and silence non-stop income message annoyances Via a group -specific Do not disturb toggle.sharing your locations for a set period of time is also going to be a part of iMessages,essentially working over the concept from Apple’s underused friend My friends app.Location sharing ,when it was part of the standalone app,was ideal for meeting up in a crowded location like a baseball stadium or concert,and now it’ll get more use within iMessages.
Multimedia within iOs 8’s iMessages app should be more useful too. Inline voice and video messages with snapchat like clips that self destruct are coming to this Mobile OS update.
Interactive notifications :
The times when you do actually respond to texts and calender reminders on your phone instead of Mac computer. iOs 8 adds convenient interactive notifications.like OS X Mavericks,these notifications can be dealt with in a few simple taps thanks to inline responses.There’s no need to mess with the lock screen in order to take action right away.
iOs notifications have come a long way journey from taking up the entire middle of your phone screens,and iOs 8 makes them feel like even less of a nuisance, with traditional notifications you could be alerted when message came in,an invitation was sent your way.accept an invitation right from the lock screen,or like a piece of news directly from Notification Center. whether you’re editing a business document or playing a game,interruption is minimized and app switching is potentially eliminated altogether.
Extensions and Quicktype keyboard :
Apple claims its iOs 8 keyboard is its”smartest keyboard ever”,and there’s no reason to doubt that since its Quicktype feature adds highly-requested predictive texting that’s akin to swiftkey and swype. The candidate row appears above the keyboard with three word finishing suggestions and then next word best guesses.It even varies depending on the app that’s open to match your tone for each, from casual iMessages to formal emails.If someone asks you a question,Quicktype will also automatically offer choices like “yes” and “No” and,optionally,learn your contacts to spell everyone’s name correctly.better yet,Apple won’t limit users to its pre-installed keyboard.”Extensions” open up iOs 8 to Andriod ‘s best inputs methods: swype appeared at WWDC and swiftkey confirmed thaat it’s breaking free of its swiftkey Note standalone app confines.Third party extensions also let users tinker with the default sharing options,photo editing tools,custom actions and notifications widgets.There’s always a lot of potential when a platform as large as Apple’s open up its ecosystem to outside developers.Look at what did to the App store.
Extensions by forward-thinking developers may be long overdue,but it’ll finally be here in a few months thanks to iOs 8.
iCloud may actually be useful :
prior to today,there was very little reason to use the ridiculously 5GB of free space Apple included with iCloud.it was always easier to use a more capable and less expensive Dropbox account.That all changes when iOs 8 launches along side iCloud Drive,Apple’s new rival to Google Drive,Dropbox,box,Microsoft One Drive and dozens of the other file sharing services that have sprung in recent years.what’s really cool about the forthcoming iCloud enabled iOs photos app is that every picture and every edit is saved across all of your Apple Devices automatically.Better yet,there are new tools and filters in iOs 8 and it’ll work on web.
It still costs money over the 5GB limit.but at least more file types can be stored and synced.This includes documents and presentations ,Pdf,Images and spreadsheets.
iOs 8 family sharing :
All itunes,ibooks and App store purchases on the same credit card can be shared among a total of six (or) 8 peoples in your family(or)in between your friends also.That beats having to sneakily exchange passwords.May be you’ll be more willing to buy into iCloud Drive knowing that you’re going to save money thanks to Apple’s new family sharing feature that’s part of iOs 8.New parental control force kids to ask your permission before aimlessly downloading expensive apps.This “Ask to Buy”featured beams a message to your device ,so you don’t need to be the fun -depriving “bad guy” in person.
Other family sharing perks include collaborative photo albums,calendars and optional locating sharing.you can find your or your Dad and that iPhone they always misplace with this extension of find My Friends and Find my iPhone.
Send the last location of my iPhone to find :
iOs 8 expands the geolocation capabilities of find My iPhone with family sharing and find My friends by integrating it into iMessages,but in true Apple fashion,”that’s not at all”, A “send last location”feature is being added so that your GPS coordinates are backed up to iCloud whenever your battery life is critical.Right before your iPhone or iPad battery shuts off. the last thing of device does is pinpoint where your left it.Whether it’s between the couch cushions or still in the car.This handy iOs 8 beta 1 setting joins the real time tracking,sonar like ringing,message sending,device looking and,as a last resort,iPhone wiping features of Find My phone.
Health app :
Apple didn’t announce an iWatch tied Healthbook app at WWDC. but it did unveil a more plainly named Health app and developer focussed Healthkit API. It’s intended to bring together all of the fragmented health and fitness gadgets into one secure location.whether the fitness devices deals with your heart rate,calories burned,blood sugar and cholesterol.Even without a seperate fitness device,Apple’s iPhone 5S M7 co-processor calculates steps and distance travelled ,and iPhone 6 may make room for new barometer and air pressure sensors and according to the latest beta.Beta 3 also adds a caffeine intake tracking as a nutritional category,which is similar to the jawbone Up coffee iOs app.for extra protection,there’s an emergency card accessible from the iOs screen.Nike and the MayoClinic are on board with the Healthkit in Order to deposit health stats into the centralized Health app,and withings’Blood pressure Monitor was a part of Apple’s WWDC presentation.
The more that existing products like the fitbit force and jawbone UP24 join this initiative.The more iOs users will find this to be the Health equivalent to Apple’s coupon and ticket stub collecting passbook.
Homekit of iOs 8 :
Apple also plans to tie together smart home electronics with its Homekit framework for connected devices so that you control every thing without getting up off the touch.Instead,these actions can be triggered with siri voice commands as simple as saying “Mahiish diino,I’m going to bed” in order for the computerized assistant to put you into something of a human”safe mode.”
locking doors,turning off lights,adjusting the thermostat and shutting the garage won’t even require tapping your iPhone 5s touchscreen,it turns out.
Location based lock screen apps of iOs 8 :
Early examples people have found include apps for the Apple Store, Starbucks and train stations, when near each of those things. You can then get quick access to those apps by simply swiping them upwards.It seems that it can also make you aware of new apps as sometimes the icon will be for an app that you don’t have and will instead take you to its page on the App Store. It’s a minor feature perhaps, but one which could save time and help users make purchases and access location-specific information.
If you’re anything like us you have hundreds of apps, but finding the right one at the right time can sometimes mean sifting through folders and that’s if you even remember it exists. But with iOs 8 certain apps based on where you are at a particular time.
split screen mode in the code of iOs 8 :
There’s no telling whether or not a split-screen mode will end up in future iOs 8 beta versions or the final software, but Apple certainly appears to be toying with the idea.Apple didn’t announce the rumored split-screen functionality when introducing iOs 8 in June, but it may be saving the unveiling as a “One more thing” for the software’s final release.iOs 8 beta 3 code points to true multitasking on an iPad, according to leaks from developers. Apps can run side-by-side in 1/4, 1/2 and 3/4 sizes.Apple’s didn’t announced the rumored split screen functionality when introducing iOs 8 in june,but it may be saving the unveiling as a”one more thing” for the software’s final release.After all,its competitors have had the feature up and running for some time.The Samsung Galaxy Tab S has multi-Window mode and Microsoft Surface 3 has snap mode.Like copy and paste a few years ago,iOs users are left envying others or your friends also.
features being saved for iOs 9 from iOs 8 :
Apps for photo previews and a TextEdit application, also previously rumored for WWDC 2014, didn’t make an appearance either, and the status of Game Center is still unknown. Apple hasn’t killed it off just yet,There’s a lot going on with iOs 8, but chief among the changes Apple failed to implement officially is true split-screen multitasking, which Samsung and LG have offered on their Android tablets and larger phones.As the iOs 8 beta begins to update with new features every month, there are bound to be more surprises leading up to the official release date, which is expected to happen in September.public transit directions via Apple Maps is missing in action as well, and Google Maps is benefiting the most from this. Hopefully its implementation was delayed to iOs 8.1 instead of next year’s iOs 9.coupled with iPhone 6 and an iWatch,it should be enough to keep Apple users from defecting to Andriod,even with the new Andriod wear Watches launched at Google 2014.
