New iOS 8 Features

Just like with previous iOS versions before it, Apple was able to demo only some of the main features of its upcoming iOS 8 update during this year’s WWDC keynote, but buried inside iOS 8 there will be plenty of other cool features Apple did not mention during the event. However, Apple listed some of the upcoming iOS 8 features it didn’t have time to discuss at length on a slide that popped up briefly at the very end of its presentation, as you can see in the image above.

For your enjoyment, here are 20 promising iOS 8 features that Apple did not talk about during the iOS 8 announcement, but that are nonetheless included in the upcoming major iOS release:

  • Braille Keyboard for direct 6 dot braille input
  • Private browsing per tab in Safari
