Last year, Apple showed the biggest change in iOS firmware, a mobile operating system that many of us have enjoyed for a year now. Now the true evolution begins. Joni Yves and the IOS team had plenty of time to listen to feedback and dig deeper into the possibilities presented ever and took control of the software. And, finally, iOS 8 is here.
We expect a new Healthbook app, broken from the iTunes Radio app, to stand on their own, and maybe even split the multi-tasking screen on the iPad. Will all these dreams come true?
Let's find out together.
We will update this article, more and more will be announced, so please update how the story is still evolving.
Several great reviews they boasted first:
Notification Center quite a bit different. It includes new interactive notifications equipped, so you swipe down immediately to respond to the message, and that extends all the way to the screen lock. It looks like interactive notifications from OS X Mavericks.
You can also find your favorite contacts by double-clicking in multitasking mode. This gives you quick access to people you speak to most.
In Safari, you can get to the look of the tabs by clicking on the "Tab View" button in the upper right corner on the iPad that comes directly from the new Yosemite version of OS X.
Plus, there are new mail capabilities that allow you to use gestures to go directly from the message you compose onto your mailbox, simply by holding down. This allows you to check things while you are in the middle of the project and then you can pop back into the message that you were editorial clicking at the bottom of the screen.
Quicktype is a new version of the keyboard in iOS 8. The keyboard finally supports keyword automatic suggestions to let you auto-fill quickly. This is contextual, so it offers up words based on what you have already typed.
In addition, he also knows who you are talking about, which is crazy. Knowing who you are talking, he will send before the prediction, which have the right to the kind of conversation you have with this particular person. This is of great importance if you are texting with your boss or your friend.
Continuity is a new feature of Apple software coming out of the firmware for OS X Yosemite. The phone, ipad and computer will know about each other, and while you are in the middle of the task, you can switch from one device to another with a simple line.
When composing a letter on the computer, a small icon will appear on the bottom left of the cell on the mobile. Going up, just like to open the camera quickly, you can get directly into the same email project on your mobile. The same goes with the iPhone on the Mac.
You could compose a text message on your phone, and the Apple computer running Yosemite automatically add an icon to the dock, prompting you to complete the message on the computer.
Perhaps the most exciting part is that continuity extends to phone calls, which means that you can have your phone plugged on the other side of the house and pick up the phone call on your computer using it as a speakerphone. You can make calls from Mac, too.
iMessage is the most widely used application. So they spent some time working on how we communicate to each other.
With group messages, you can name the thread, add and delete people, and set the 'Do not disturb for every person in the stream.'
Apple also added sound messages that you can send by navigating to the left on a small beacon on the right side of the print window. You can also respond to a message in the notification center with an audio message just picking up the receiver to your ear. The same lighthouse offers video messaging and an exchange of location.
Most importantly, you can configure these audio messages and video messages to self-destruct after a certain number of minutes, going head to head with Snapchat in an interesting way. Ephemeralism is here. For good, as it seems.
Company is also a great hub for Apple, and so iOS has improved ICloud Drive, as well as Device Registry and even the Mail application part, which will now allow you to include VIP streams, not just assigning VIP status to contacts.
Health is that we knew that Apple would be focused on, but we do not know that "Health" will be the real name of the application. As expected, this is a centralized location where many health applications can be connected at the back end so that users can have a single center for all of their health data and services.
On the internal interface, Apple calls on his first aid kit. But this is not only the developers who can build in the first aid kit, but medical workers and medical institutions.
Family ExchangeThis is a new feature in iOS 8, which allows you to synchronize all devices in one family (must be tied to one credit card) to automatically share media, calendars, reminders, or find your friends. You can also find the right devices for people who could be useful for parents with forgetful children. Or vice versa.
The most important part of iOS 8 Family Sharing is that it will help with children who will gain crazy bills owned by their parents. Now that the child is trying to make a purchase on iTunes or the App Store, the parent will receive a notification asking for permission. The problem is solved.
Until now, Apple's photo stream has only allowed for 1000 photos to be stored at a time, requiring that at some point you back everything up to your Mac. Now Apple offers storage for all your photos and videos in the cloud with access to them from any device, just as iTunes keeps all your music and movies.
And not only are these devices syncing changes, photos and devices, but they have new smart editing features that allow you to make some pretty amazing changes in both Photos and Videos.
And, of course, with more photos that need more searching. Apple has added a more advanced search within the Photos app, which includes automatic suggestions from recently taken photos, recently viewed, etc.
In a broader sense, the Photo app as a whole looks completely different than it does, with a lot of space between the photos, unlike the look of Yosemite.
Siri is closer to iOS 8, and it's pretty big. Now you can activate Siri without touching the phone that I actually had to pray for since she arrived just saying "Hey Siri." Siri also now has the integration of Shazam, the ability to purchase content from iTunes, streaming voice recognition, and is shipped in 22 new languages dictation.
There is a lot at the fingertips of developers this year. TouchID is currently open to third-party developers, and keyboard builders are now allowed to introduce the App Store, that is, Swype can finally be available on the mobile. They also provide APIs for cameras that give more manual control to third-party applications.
And, perhaps, the most exciting, HomeKit. HomeKit will be Apple's smart home platform, allowing developers to create something central to iOS. Expect to see an even bigger boom in IoT equipment at home. Once the developers get cracked on it, with the help of Siri, you can set your phone to "Get ready for bed" mode, and simultaneously turn off the light, reduce the temperature, etc.comments powered by HyperComments
