iOS 8 Available to Download Now


With the revelation of the latest iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus came the latest iOS 8 from Apple and now it’s available to download.


We first got to see the iOS 8 make its debut at WWDC earlier in the year and during the presentation for the latest iPhone, Apple confirmed they would be rolling out the latest iOS to Apple users just before the handsets came out.


iOS 8 What’s new?

A few design tweaks can be seen on iOS 8 and with a few changes to apps and the UI this latest iOS gives Apple fans a few things they have been asking for.


QuickType Keyboard can now be changed using third party apps and a simple double tap at the top of the screen will open a “recents” menu for quicker access to recently used apps.


Siri has been enhanced with a music recognition feature so you can simply ask Siri what song is playing to find out about it and purchase it from iTunes should you want to.

Messages can now have even more added to them including audio and location information and group messaging has been improved to include new ways to edit and mute them.


The ever increasing popularity of selfies hasn’t been ignored on the new iPhone as users now have a selfie timer to work with the front facing camera to get the perfect shot.


This latest iOS 8 update will be rolled out to existing Apple users automatically but if you have not received the update option you can go through the settings menu to get it.

The update will be on offer to users with an iPhone 4s or above so if you have an older iPhone the iOS 8 will not be compatible with it. The update roll out will also be available on the iPad 2,3,4, and Air as well as the iPad Mini and iPad Mini with Retina Display.
