The iOS 8 leaks keep coming. After information about a number of iOS 8 apps leaked, a screenshot of the iOS 8 home screen has leaked on Chinese social network Weibo.
The screenshot shows icons for new iOS 8 apps Healthbook, Preview and TextEdit, as well as what appears to be a new app called Tips.
The Healthbook icon is made up of three colored strips, each one indicative of the capabilities of the app. The red strip with a droplet refers to blood pressure levels, the orange strip with a fire icon refers to calories burned and the green strip with a heart refers to heart rate.
The Preview and TextEdit icons are similar to their Mac counterparts, but they seem quite unpolished, and are possibly just placeholders until better ones are designed. The Tips app could possibly give users tips to better use their iPhone and iPad, but it’s exact purpose isn’t known yet.
The screenshots suggest that iOS 8’s design will be very similar to that of iOS 7, and the major highlight of the release would be new apps and features. iOS 8 will reportedly include major under-the-hood improvements to the Maps app, a standalone iTunes Radio app, TextEdit and Preview apps for iOS, and Healthbook, an app to keep track of your fitness.
What do you think of the possibility of these new apps? Let me know in the comments below.
