With hundreds of millions of Apple product users around the world, they really do need to be keeping at the top of their game in order to keep all their customers happy. This year’s iOS7 update was greeted with a giant “Meh”, but there has been (according to Apple anyway) a 97% satisfaction rating on the system update. But over the weekend, Apple revealed some details on their new iOS8 update, which once again doesn’t look like much of a game changer, but is sure to be packed out with little changes that might just make your life a little easier.
Changes will appear on everything from the iPhone – notification centre is getting an overhaul, and messages can now be replied to without leaving whatever app you were currently in when the message arrived – to the iPad and Gmail, as well as the new QuickType feature, which will read the message you’re responding to, and give you some automatic shortcuts of what your possible response may be.
The iOS8 will be available to developers as of right now, while the rest of us norms can expect to get it this Autumn, probably right around the same time Apple reveal their new iPhone.
