iOS 8 Features

This summer has definitely been bittersweet for Apple fans. A constant flow of rumors and leaks showed everyone exactly what they could expect from the bigger, better iPhone 6 models that would be released later in 2014, but they were still months away from becoming a reality. Compounding matters was Apple’s unveiling of iOS 8 this past June. iPhone and iPad users looked on longingly at all the great new features that would remain just out of reach with each passing beta release.

But the wait is finally over, Apple fans. iOS 8 will be released to the public on Wednesday, and we’re here to tell you exactly how to use the software’s best new features on your compatible iPhone, iPad or iPod touch.
