THROUGH THE NEW OPERATING SYSTEM IOS8, AVAILABLE FOR FREE DOWNLOAD IN SEPTEMBER, MANY INNOVATIONS WILL BE OFFERED TO IPHONE, IPAD, AND IPOD USERS, PRIMARILY IN THE FIELD OF HEALTH.
Apple introduced the new mobile operating system at an event organized for developers. The new system features are going to please the mobile technology users.
iPhone 4s, iPhone 5, iPhone 5c and iPhone 5s model smart phones; iPad 2, Retina iPad, iPad Air, iPad mini and Retina iPad mini model tablets, iPod touch music players will be able to update to iOS 8. Apple also introduced a new operating system called OS X Yosemite for desktop computers. The close intersystem communication between iOS 8 and OS X Yosemite allows users to start an activity on one Apple device and continue it on another.
Here are some of the remarkable features of iOS 8:
Assertive in the health field
The new application called Health collects all your fitness and health information in one application. In addition to sections of activity tracker, heart rate monitor, calorie counter, and more, it also allows users to create emergency cards for first responders’ view on the lock screen.
Calls and SMSs on your computer
Mac computers operating on OS X Yosemite when paired with iPhone will have the ability to receive SMSs and answer incoming calls. OS X Yosemite will be released at or about the same date, as iOS 8 will. For Mac, at points where no internet connection is available, the Hotspot feature allows the users to go online via their phone’s internet connection.
The way is clear for third-party keyboards
Apple did not allow the iOS devices to install third-party keyboards until today, but now the way is clear. A third-party keyboard can now alter the iOS 8 keyboard, which improved its ability to suggest words thanks to its Quicktype feature.
Camera captures ‘time lapses’
Apple mobile devices that could capture 120 frames per 7 seconds to create slow motion videos on iOS 7 are going to be able to do vice versa now. Devices can create Time-lapse videos by snapping photos at dynamically selected intervals and compounding them.
Finger print security
Finger print scanner, which is used to unlock the lock screen and log in to the application store, is going to be used with all applications; therefore, making it possible to use a fingerprint instead of a password. Voice-driven assistant Siri will be able to recognize 22 languages through iOS 8.
Unlimited sharing and storage
IOS 8 supports other storage systems such as Dropbox, Google Drive, Microsoft OneDrive, and Boxer for the users who need larger storage capacities than iOS 8’s own 5GB free iCloud storage offers. IOS 8 gives its users the ability to organize documents, presentations, spreadsheets, PDFs, and images through iCloud. Family Sharing makes it more practical to share data such as photo albums, calendars, and location information.
Green light for the smart house
It is going to be possible to manage devices that control smart house systems such as door locks, lighting, and air-conditioning by only using Siri without even unlocking iPhone. Users will be able to use natural voice to issue commands such as “Lock the doors” and it is going to lock the doors.
