iOS 8: Apple’s Next Major Mobile Operating System

Apple will unveil iOS 8, the major mobile operating system for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch at the WWDC 2014 Keynote on June 2nd.

Since iOS 7 featured an all-new design, we don’t expect Apple to make radical changes in iOS 8. Based on the leaks, iOS 8 is expected to come with new features and improvements such as an all-new Healthbook app, improved Maps app with improved points-of-interest data, public transit directions in select cities, augmented reality and indoor mapping, all-new Preview and TextEdit apps to make it easier to access documents in iCloud, inter-app communication capabilities, a new Tips app, standalone app for iTunes Radio, improved Notification and lots more.
