Apple's annual Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) for the year has kicked off in all its glory, and already we have seen a host of announcements flying out of Apple's keynote at the event, the most important being the announcement of the new iOS 8 operating system.
But while the new version of Apple's proprietary mobile operating system has brought immense joy to fans and users alike with its new dedicated features for a better overall experience, there are still a few things Apple may have forgotten about or decided against mentioning going by its importance.
Whatever it is, Apple has indeed missed out on a few other details related to the new iOS offering. And although Apple might think that the ones it has left out won't really make any difference, it's still pretty interesting to find out more about them.
And Moreover, not knowing those features that are actually sharing a co-existence with the new iOS itself makes them, sort of, secret features (and also quite cool).
So here the 5 intricate things that Apple forgot to mention at this year's WWDC event.
iOS 8 at WWDC 2014: Keyboard for the Blind
Did you know that the new iOS 8 also comes with a Braille keyboard that will now assist the blind in their day to day life? Apparently, the iOS 8 will include a Braille keyboard with "direct six dot input." And although it's not clear as to how exactly this will work out, but it will indeed make a huge difference in the life of many.
iOS 8 at WWDC 2014: An App for Tips
There's apparently a tips app embedded in the new iOS offering. And although it isn't clear if it will provide a know-how for all things iOS or will arrive as just another stand-alone app, the new app will sure look to counter all those third-party devs who have made and pushed out tips apps for iOS over the years.
iOS 8 at WWDC 2014: App-based Battery Usage
While the current version of the iOS allows users to keep a tab on exactly how much space is being used by each app present in the device, Apple has promised to do the same with the new iOS 8 in the battery usage section. So no more wondering which apps to kill to save that precious juice.
iOS 8 at WWDC 2014: DuckDuckGo
Apple wants to do more with Safari's search engine options in iOS 8, and hence it's now including DuckDuckGo, a search startup that somewhat carrier an an anti-Google tag, into its system. And although the DuckDuckGo isn't that big a deal compared to the likes of Google or Bing, but at least it doesn't track its users for advertising purposes.
iOS 8 at WWDC 2014: Calling over Wi-Fi
Although Apple has already supported FaceTime audio and video calls over Wi-Fi networks, it looks like new standards are expected with the new iOS 8.
