New York City, New York – (StockNewsDesk) – 09/18/2014 — The first glimpses of Apple iOS 8 were shown at the annual developer conference in June. Now the iOS 8 has come to life for iPads and iPhones. The companies spent a great amount of time at its WWDC 2014 conference pointing out that iOS 8 can take the iOS 7 patterns and load it with new features. It would have Mac’s assimilation without putting tight limits on Apple’s Touch ID fingerprint sensor.
In the new iOS 8 platforms one can swiftly find and edit images, and put voice in a text. It also lets the fitness and health apps connect with your doctor, trainer and with one another. The developers are given many more tools and much more access. To share your content in a more innovative way, you will have keyboard alternatives. You would also be able to use Touch ID and iCloud in brand new ways. With the iOS 8 you can do much more than you have expected from an Apple device.
The Apple devices that use Bluetooth 4.0 would be able to connect to the iOS 8. The iPhone 6 and 6 Plus users can readily update to the current operating system. It may take you some time to update or get the alert that you are allowed to use the latest upgrade, as many Apple smartphone users are trying to update their tablet and smartphone’s at the same time.
The current version of the software is compatible with iPhone 4s handsets, and later it will also be compatible with iPad 2 tablets, iPad mini, iPad mini with retina display and iPod touch (5th generation) gadgets. You must remember to backup your phone before upgrading to iOS 8 platforms. It offers three methods of upgrading – for enterprise deployments, through iTunes and on the device. The best way to upgrade is from the device, as it is not time-consuming.
With the Apple iOS 8, one can get loaded features. iMessage is packed with popular messaging apps, like Google’s hangouts and WhatsApp. The QuickType keyboard suggests the next word you might type based on your conversation. It is far better than autocorrect. The new iCloud drive is a huge step in the right direction. It lets you drag PDFs, word documents and other files into a folder on your PC or Mac. After that you can use them on your iPhone, iPad or even in the web. The iCloud library, which is due next month, is a completely different service.
The slide up of the small app icon and access of apps are limited to a just handful of apps. The Safari Web Browser, Mail, Calendar and Apple’s Maps are among the few to be mentioned. Other than this, if you try to open a web page you would have to scroll down to locate the maps. The app takes you to the location you were first viewing, known as Handoff, and would be useful when the developers take advantage of it.
There are certain limitations, but Apple’s iOS 8 is a way ahead of all the other platforms now.
