Apple upcoming Major update to the its iOS Mobile Operating System, iOS 8 official release date is September,17th. Apple has just announced that the iOS 8 update will be rolled-out to selected iOS devices by the end of this Month (17th). The iOS 8 brings many features along with some GUI changes.
This latest iOS iteration will be compatible to iPhones ranging from iPhone 4S to iPhone 5S, to iPod touch 5th generation and to the iPads from iPad 2 to iPad Air, including both iPad minis too.
It's out of question that Apple is going to release the iPhone 6 with iOS 8.0 this year. According to the leaked screenshots, the iOS 8 will look a lot similar to the current version iOS 7.1, featuring square icons with rounded edges. Apart from the design, the image reveals the presence of New applications such as Healthbook, TextEdit, Preview and Tips will be pre-installed.
The new apps are said to help users to view, Preview and TextEdit files that are stored in the iCloud. However, these icons seem far from finished as they are basically OS X icons for Preview and TextEdit.
Sources reports suggest that Apple is NOT interested in increasing the Megapixel count of its next iPhone's (iPhone 6) camera, keeping it the same as the current iPhone 5s 8MP camera. Instead Apple will likely focus on improving the lens system and image quality.
Rumors are circulating that Apple will use swappable resin lenses for its iPhone 6 and also suggested the use of optical image stabilization (OIS) on the next iPhone's camera sensor.
What Apple are planning for the iPhone 6 is still not clear, but 8MP in 2014 is NOT a good plan!
