ios8With the yearly launch of Apple’s latest smartphone we also get an update of the operating system iOS. This year Apple introduces iOS 8 and according to them it is “the biggest iOS release ever — for developers and everyone else”. Many would argue that the release of iOS 7 last year was the biggest change since the original, but iOS 8 does seem to bring a lot of features to the table. iOS 8 is officially available from today, although you might run into some errors as the most people will be rushing to be the first in line.

The iOS 8 update will be available for iPhone 4S and up, iPad 2 and up as well as 5th generation iTouch. Let’s see what Apple has in store with the new iOS 8…
