iOS 8 release, news and features

Company spent a competitive amount of its WWDC 2014 keynote focusing on iOS 8, which takes the flat iOS 7 design and only rounds it out with new features.

Which implies instead of a chaotic redesign, you can expect this year’s mobile operating system update to level everything together with the overarching theme of “convergence.”

iOS 8 will feature tighter Mac integration while loosening the restrictions on Apple’s Touch ID fingerprint sensor. New software kits are also bringing once fragmented security and health gadgets together.

While there was no mention of an iPhone 6 or an iWatch at this year’s WWDC, Apple seems to be setting the stage for a new wearable device by the time iOS 8 is released for public use.
