Photo management just got better. On the iOS 8 the photo app are linked with the iCloud Photo library. All the photos and videos will be saved on the iCloud too, you will be able to access them anything, anyplace. You can access the photos using iPhone, iPod, iPad or via the web.

iOS 8 might actually change the messaging ways. The messages app will be able to capture sound or your voice with a simple tap. Tap to talk and then swipe to send and to hear the message just tap the play button. You can share videos and your location. Group messages are also supported.

The are some new features on the Apple iOS 8, like the interactive notifications that will keep you notified on any application that you might be currently using, there is no need to leave the app. You can read and even reply without leaving the currently application.

Mail app has also been improved, you can easily switch between draft email, what’s more the Mail app is smart enough to recognize the phone number, reservation, flight confirmations etc and it will notify accordingly. You can also had events saved in your calendar directly from the mail.

The keyboard got smarter it can predict what you will be saying (typing) next. There is a new health application that keeps track of your physical activities. You can also create an emergency card that will be easily accessible from the lock screen.

Apple has given more emphasis on continuity (handsoff); this is, basically being able to continue working on other Apple devices. For example if you were composing an email on the iPhone and you move on to the iPad or the Mac you will be able to continue from where you left. You can now receive calls from your iPad or the Mac.

Then there is spotlight to help you find what you are looking for, developer tools and much more.

  1. All the features are a rip off of popular messaging platforms and features offered by sony and samsung. Nothing new. But still stupid apple fanboys would say its an innovation.Lolzzzz.. Poor brainless beings. πŸ˜€

    1. You are wrong my friend(FoolBoy you even not fanboy you are foolboy)… And one more thing “Apple have a Lovers”… Apple not for your type Foolboy ha ha ha ha ha ha πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

  2. steve jobs died serving for apple and building it from scratch leaving giants like samsung and nokia far behind..and who can forget the suit which Samsung lost against apple for imitating many features from iOS..and atleast apple delivers what it promises and thats what basically iOS ecosystem is all about..no lag ,xcellent built quality, retina display, best camera in any phone ever produced, the list is endless and u call it didnt innovate anything..get ur basics right dude before preaching nonsense accusations..and for ur kind info all apple products are made in California as one can see in d flip side of any ios device they are basically assembled in china coz of cheap labour costs..

      1. But does it have auto call recording. Something almost every sub 1k chicom phone user has access to. Yeah it is not there for security reasons etc etc I know, but for whose security?

    1. Before getting off the basics first you get your basics right the BEST CAMERA EVER IS “THE NOKIA LUMIA 1020”. Other than that so called inventions of your fan apple company. TOUCHSCREEN was first invented by NOKIA. SIM CARD TRAY was invented by NOKIA.. PUREVIEW IMAGING… NOKIA.. I could go on the list gets endless… AUDIO messaging was there long back in NOKIA.. their java versions had them for gods sake… it was there in Symbian too…. it has been there for so long… besides pop up NOTIFICATION was also there in Symbian.. not an INVENTION apple… first you get your head straight… besides that I personally own a iphone 5S.. and I miss SYMBIAN.. I miss FREEDOM…. πŸ™‚

      1. I have only one phone and its nokia c5-03. And I am planing to buy one cheap android phone.

  3. all branches of technology borrow from each other. apple did not invent anything other than to evolve the concept of smartphone which was started by windows mobile n blackberry.

    And us Indians are such big followers of west that whatever shit they poop is gold. No wonder they get by launching 8gb iphone5c for 37000. yes n people still buy n sell iphone 4 n 3gs in second hand market for 15-20k just cuz its iphone.

    Atleast the Chinese r doing something original. what do Indians do? buy smartphones from noname Chinese companies n brand them. n btw apple makes its phones in china, just in case u think Chinese cant make good phones.

  4. No file system. Ultimate deal breaker. ITunes. Just makes a bad deal worse. The rest is just cosmetic changes to make up for basic lack of customizability. If you have a file system, you can control your own experience. Any kind of syncing can be done either manually or by third-party apps designed for the purpose. They should not be OS features.

    An OS should only be 1) Stable 2) Open-ended and customizable so that the user can control his own experience with the help of apps designed for his specific needs by third party developers. A single company cannot ancticipate the diverse needs of many people unless they are very simple-minded which the average Apple fan certainly is. Apple is just a good hardware and multimedia company posing as a software company.

    IOS is a nice GUI but a deadend OS. We want mobile PCs, not post-PC devices. The Apple era was over long ago for most reasonably techno-savvy people. Except for enjoying and processing multimedia, the Apple world has nothing to offer. And even for that, buy a Macbook Air instead. You can get one as cheap as 60 k on Flipkart. Larger screen, higher storage, proper OS with file system, much better value for money.

  5. i completely agree with u nik..apple was and is the pioneer in smart phone technology because it involves years of r & d and millions of dollars of investment in design and innovation to produce an iPhone..brands like gionee are doing nothing in comparison but basically rebranding low cost Chinese phones in d Indian market and it will take years to reach that level of excellence..how else can one justify the 40-50k price tag..

    1. I don’t care for a history lesson or who did what back in 2005. What I care for is whether I can download a torrent on my smartphone and then transfer it to my PC without installing a 500 Mb very intrusive program on my PC. And if I’ve downloaded about 50 mb of books, can I simply zip them up in one piece and transfer to my device without any preprocessing nonsense and after unzipping on my device I keep the collection together in one piece even though they are diverse in filetypes because I want to read them together. No? Then you can spare me the story of how Steve Jobs’ travels in India helped in the development of touchscreen technology 30 years later.

      1. “Bloody fool” Those thing i do in my nokia C5-03 also πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

        1. So even your Symbian device is superior to Apple products in many respects because it has a file system. So there doesn’t seem much point in praising them, is there? Apple are pioneers mainly in making money for themselves. By not providing a file system, they control user experience better. You are forced to buy from some stores rather than others simply because it is convenient allowing for monopoly prices. They would have destroyed everything the internet stood for if not for Google’s intervention. And I hope that Microsoft too pick up in the coming years. Apple are a great hardware and multimedia company who also make excellent software GUIs. They’ve certainly raised the standards there. But beyond that, their contributions are mainly negative.

          The advantage of Android is that it combines the advantages of many systems. We get it with powerful processors, a touch interface, and a file system and maximum customizability. Being open-source, it is a boon for developers everywhere. The whole culture is very superior. Not just about the price.

  6. Great features might be good if we get all these on android os too
    What do you think gogi does these features will be available in Android in future..?

    1. They are either already available or can be made available any time in the form of third party apps. These should not be OS features at all but add-on features(in the form of apps) which a user can install according to his particular tastes and needs. Such an arrangement has always been available with Android. The reason Apple have to make these OS features is that third-party apps are not allowed the range of permissions to modify the basic OS on the user’s discretion. So unless they are offered as OS features, they cannot be added later. But in Android, they can be added any time, and you can add just the right apps and customizations for your need, not one thing for everybody whether they need/like them or not.

  7. Sai i agreed amigo is better than this….i used gionee p2,,p3 and e3…and loved it bro

And I can do a million things with the money saved. Well if I had a rich father who would give me some money to buy an apple, then why not.
