IOS 8 Announced


Every photo you take.

On all of your devices

With iPhone, people are taking more photos and videos than ever.

As photo collections grow, so does the desire to store them all safely and still access them whenever and wherever. that’s where the new Photos app and the new iCloud Photo Library come in.

You”re never without your camera.

Now you’ll never be without your photos

Every photo and video you take lives in iCloud – giving the freedom to access your library from any device, at anytime you want. So you can view a photo from the last week or last year no matter where you are


It’s never been easier to find memorable photos. Or great ones you forgot about.

IOS 8 makes it simple to find every shot. whether it’s a photo from last week’s trip to New York or one from a family barbecue last June, you can have them all at your fingertips, ready to edit, share, or just let you reminisce a little.

Search your entire library

Now you can search thousands of your photos right from your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch. Search by the date or time the photo was taken, location, or album name. Whether you’re at work, on the train, at a restaurant, or on vacation, finding a photo has never been simpler.

Get smart suggestions.

Just tap the search icon, and you’ll get choices based on what’s important to you. One more tap gives you immediate access to photos taken nearby, photos taken the same time last year, or your all-time favorite photos.


Look forward to doing amazing new things with the app you use most. In iOS 8, Messages has fun,useful, even surprising features that will change the way you think about messaging.


Add your voice to the conversation.

Messages in iOS 8 makes it easy to capture any sound — your voice, a song, or a big laugh — and make it part of the conversation. Simply touch and hold the new microphone button to record your message. Then swipe to send it.

Send a video quickly and easily.

The new Messages app lets you share what you’re seeing almost as you’re seeing it. Quickly send a video of your brother’s first time paddleboarding. Or your dad joining the fire dancers at the luau. When you do, you’ve said so much more than “Having fun on our vacation.” And you’ve said it in seconds.

Take a charge of group messages

Start a group conversation and give it a name like “Soccer Team” or “Road Trip.” Easily include who you want, drop who you don’t, and leave the conversation whenever you want. Or turn on Do Not Disturb and then read through the messages when you have time.

Details make the experience. These details make it brilliant.

iOS 7 set the bar for how an operating system should be. And iOS 8 moves the experience forward in so many significant yet natural ways. You’ll notice major new capabilities in the features you use every day. And completely new features that let you do things you didn’t realize you wanted to do.

Interactive notifications let you stay focused while you stay in touch.

Take action on texts, email, calendar invitations, reminders, and even messages from apps like Facebook right from their notification banners — without leaving the app you’re in. Now it’s easy to quickly reply to important messages and keep doing what you were doing.

A shortcut to who’s important.

From any screen, press the Home button twice to see the multitasking interface. At the top, you’ll notice something new: the faces of people you’ve recently talked to and — if you swipe to the right — your favorite contacts as well. Just tap one to call, text, or start a FaceTime call.
