With all the exciting news of self driving cars and next-generation flagships such as the LG G3. You may have forgotten that WWDC, Apple’s worldwide developer conference is now upon us. Monday Apple developers and members of the press will come together at Moscone Center for a sneak peek at Apple’s latest software innovations. At this point, we know for sure that Apple will be releasing a new version of their mobile OS, iOS 8. In this post, I would like to list a few features that we may end up seeing in iOS 8.
The first thing that has been rumored is split screen multitasking, now this is probably one of the most unpalatable features we will see in iOS 8 but it’s still worth talking about. Adding this feature would put apple’s operating system on par with Samsung’s touchwiz and many other android skins that have this feature built in. It would also make it a lot easier and quicker to get things done on your device. We can also expect to see “Health Book” apple’s new fitness tracking application. This is probably one of the most probable things that will be added to iOS 8 since we have seen so many rumors about this. The app’s interface would look similar to passbook but with the flatter design. We can also expect to see enhanced touch ID for the iPhone 5S and eventually maybe even for the new iPad whenever they might decide to release that. We will definitely see some much needed stability improvements to iOS 8. Although iOS 7 currently works fine on Apple’s newer devices it has many stability issues on their older devices such as the iPhone 4, 4S, and even the old iPads. This rumor is quite improbable but still possible, if Apple wants to stay on par with Android. Alternative keyboard support for iOS. This would allow third-party developers to develop keyboards for iOS similar to how it works on android. We also may see some improvements to the lock screen such as the ability to dismiss notifications right from there, to add widgets for weather, stocks, scores, and maybe even third party applications. We may even see NFC support. NFC or near field communication has been available on android phones for quite sometime and it allows users to simply swipe their phone over and NFC tag and cause the phone to perform certain tasks. If iOS 8 were to get NFC support this would suggest, that the next iPhone Will have NFC built in.
Well this is what I expect to see in iOS 8… What do you think we will see? Leave a comment below about what new features you expect to see in iOS 8. Also don’t forget to like and share this post.
