iOS 8 released

by Tony Hill on September 19, 2014

Apple released a new version of operating system for mobile devices iOS 8, which is according to the manufacturer, biggest change since the outcome of the App Store.

It is available for mobile phones and newer iPhone 4S, iPad from the second generation onwards, the fifth-generation iPod and Apple TV third generation. Upgrade can already be downloaded free of charge from the Internet. In addition to iOS 8 are also available third-party accessories in the form of additional software keyboards; Swype and Swiftkey in the beginning.

So, what is missing. The eagerly awaited HealthKit application that monitors all the physiological aspects of our lives: physical activity, nutrition, sleep and vital functions. Apple had in its App Store, on outcome of iOS 8, withdrawn applications that work with HealthKit, because the program is not ready yet. They publicly confirmed that at the last minute they have found a bug in the program, which will be resolved and the program issued by the end of month. Upgrade is 1.1GB in size and the installation requires five times as much empty space. For devices with smaller capacities (16GB), this can be a problem, if we have a lot of own files. It is possible to download iOS 8 via iTunes on domestic computer and then install it on the iPhone. Among the novelties is better integration with the upcoming desktop OS X Yosemite, improved Notification Center (adding and moving widgets), sending of audio and video messages as well as improved group messages, Family Sharing to share purchased digital content with family members, calling over Wi-Fi (Wi-Fi Calling), a smarter Siri and the possibility to limit data roaming in EU countries (in addition to the classical absolutely forbidden roaming and roaming allowed) and use of TouchID in third-party applications.
