Before we delve into the benefits or what IOS 8 has in store for you, let us first define what IOS is? According to Apple, “iOS is the foundation of iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch. It comes with a collection of apps that let you do the everyday things, and the not-so-everyday things, in ways that are intuitive, simple, and fun.” (https://www.apple.com/ios/)

Better control over your pics. With the release of IOS 8, you can easily and very quickly find your pics with new search features and smart albums that organize your photos for you. The new release also allows you to make adjustment to your pictures, add background, and set your photos like a video in few steps: swipe to select Time-lapse mode, tap the Record button, and let Camera record as long as you choose. Don’t like something with your pic? Simple edit it.

The new release also offers helpful shortcuts to the people you talk to most along with time-saving features for managing your mail. All of which make the experience of using your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch that much better.

Instead of each member of your family each purchasing the same item, IOS 8 allows the sharing of purchases from iTunes, iBooks, and the App Store to up to six people in your household. You can also keep up with each other’s photos, calendars, locations, and more. What’s even more important is IOS 8 makes sharing those precious memories much easier and fun by automatically setting up a shared family album where you can contribute photos, videos, and comments; and all this stays up to date on everyone’s devices.

No matter which device you are using with IClouds you always have the latest of each, whether it is documents, apps, notes or contacts. Now with IOS 8, Apple has taken IClouds a step further to allow users to also safely store all their presentations, spreadsheets, PDFs, images, and any other kind of document in iCloud and access them from iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, Mac, or PC.
Health. Health is a very important aspect of human being and Apple has decided that they need to be a big part of their user’s life. Apple’s new Health app gives you an easy to read dashboard of your health and ﬁtness data. Working with all your Health Apps that you use to check your heart rate, calories, cholesterol and others, can all be seen on one dashboard accessible with a tap, giving you a clear and current overview of your health.
Connect all your Apple Devices. In today’s modern high tech world, it is very hard to find someone with just one device, and that is true for Apple lovers. With IOS 8, all your Apple devices can now become one. For example say you are working on an email using your Mac and for some reason you have to leave. Instead of rushing through the email, you can start writing your email on one device and then continue writing it on another device, e.g. your IPhone. Everything is now connected, even sending SMS or answering calls.
Find things quicker and easier with Spotlight. Spotlight searches sites like Wikipedia, places nearby, what news are trending, and more. What’s even better, before it gives you an answer it first consider context and location to offer you the most relevant information. This proves technology is now smarter and better.
