While all the excitement related to the new iPhones and the Apple Watch is yet to subside, Apple has more big news for all its users. As revealed, the company has announced that iOS 8 will be released to the public on Wednesday, September 17.
While the latest iteration of the iOS was revealed back in WWDC in June, we were still waiting for a potential release date regarding the same. And with the new date, as it seems, is just a couple of days before the iPhones go on sale.
Like all other previous updates before it, iOS 8 will be a free upgrade for iPhone, iPad and iPod owners. Here are the devices that will be eligible for the update: iPhone 4s, iPhone 5, iPhone 5c, iPhone 5s, iPod touch (5th generation), iPad 2, iPad (third and fourth generation), iPad Air, iPad mini and iPad mini with Retina display.
Talking about changes, while the visual style of iOS 8 remains largely the same as iOS 7, there're a host of improvements and new services to explore in the new platform. And there's so much more to look foward to with the new OS.
The update brings new features for developers Homekit, Metal, Custom actions, App bundles and Trending search. Apple has also made the keyboard open to developers so that you can install a custom keyboard and use it for everything. The OS brings expanded security and management improvements.
