What To Expect In iOS 8

May 7 2014, 10:34pm CDT | by

iOS 8 is quickly approaching, but what will we be seeing?

The Worldwide Developers Conference in San Francisco is rapidly approaching, being less than a month away, but we still don’t entirely know what will be on display from Apple. One thing that is for sure, though, is the introduction of iOS 8.

iOS 7 was by far the star of last year’s developers conference, so this might not be any different. The last reveal was one of the biggest changes in what Apple devices look like software wise, with a massive overhaul taking place that drastically altered the way we see our devices.

In iOS 8, we are going to be seeing, first, the introduction of Healthbook, which will make it easy to track all of your health and stay on top of everything that is going on in your body. This will play a large role in the iWatch, which is expected to be introduced later on this year.

Next we will also be seeing the changes that have been long rumored in iTunes. iTunes Radio was introduced last year, but this latest update will see it breaking away from iTunes and become its own app, in hopes that it will help expose customers to ad-supported music. The song recognition features are also expected to be seen, as a product of their partnership with Shazam.

In other places, we’ll see more use of iCloud, an improvement to Siri, and enhanced Touch ID features that will let users purchase products with their fingerprint.

Stay tuned to find out what else will be coming for iOS 8 as the date draws near.

Forums: Who is the target audience for the Apple Watch?

Oct 14 2014 4:30pm CDT | Source: MacNN

Yesterday in the MacNN forums, one long-time member made some interesting points about the most likely clientele for the premium Apple Watches that would be priced above $500 stating that a watch is really the only piece of "jewelry" a man can pull off with style, so some of the higher end models would likely be very appealing to watch aficionados. More suggestions for the best free iOS 8 keyboards have been coming ...

The site says that it has confirmed this to an extent itself; on an iPhone 6 with iOS 8.0.2, telling Siri to "open my Bank of America credit card" will open up Passbook, rather than a Bank of America app. Doing so also prompts users to enter their passcode or ...
