Apple iOS 8 Brings Significant Change For iOS Users
Finally it is the day when Apple finally launches its latest operating system. Apple has announced that it is the most significant day in the history of Apple. Apple has been promoting iOS 8 terming it as “the biggest Apple iOS release ever.” However, the changes and upgrades to the Apple iOS 8 seem to be very insignificant.
The Apple iOS 8 do have some significant upgrades but most of the systems prospective are dependent upon third-party developers. These announcements however have no implication unless the user gives out their own verdict. The Apple iOS 8 also provides access to iCloud a feature prevalent since iOS 7.
The Top Upgrades:
Spotlight Search – This app unlike the previous versions is no longer limited to just your device. Giving a single keyword predicts a whole range of texts. This includes results from Wikipedia, iTunes Store, App Store and even iBook store. This is quite helpful as you can choose from a number of predicted links. The only problem is that you will have a long list of options to choose from.
Keyboard – Apple iOS 8 brings with itself a new keyboard as well as options for third party keyboard. iOS 8 has attempted to imitate Android in this function. Instead of autocorrect option, word suggestions appear on the small bar while typing texts.
And the best feature is that after sometime you can construct sentences from the suggestions itself. The regularly used phrases get saved automatically. If, however, you do not like the Swiftkey keyboard, you can always choose from third party keyboards readily available in the App store.
Push Notifications Bar – The notifications have received a new push. Apple iOS 8 provides you with display of the recent notification in a banner like display on the top frame of the screen. You can reply to messages directly from the notification by pulling down a reply space. This prevents you from closing down your running app for a reply. But if you have multiple notifications on your screen, you need to check and reply to it the primitive way.
Mail – The mail app has been upgraded so now you can identify important e-mails. You can also store addresses, event dates and reservation details directly from the email. The emails can also be swipe controlled. Swiping your finger to the right side marks it as read while swiping to the left sends it to the archive. There are swipes for other functions as well.
These are the few significant improvisations that have been incorporated making the Apple iOS 8 a cut above its precursors. It is still a wait for time until the user reviews are received.
