Apparently when it rains iOS 8 leaks, it pours. This week we've already been treated to a couple of reports regarding the changes that may be in store for iOS 8, including improvements to the Maps app and some screenshots that showed new Healthbook, Preview and TextEdit apps. Today the leakage continues with some new information on other tweaks that Apple is considering for the next major update to its mobile operating system.
Sources speaking to 9to5Mac claim that Apple is considering making changes to several major aspects of iOS with the update to iOS 8. Those apps that may be getting tweaked include the Notification Center, Voice Memos, Messages, CarPlay and more. The full list of apps that may undergo changes with iOS 8 is as follows:
So far it sounds like iOS 8 will be a mix of small and large changes meant to improve the performance and ease of use of iOS. The update to iOS 7 represented one of the biggest changes to iOS in its short life thanks to the refreshed user interface that Tim Cook and Co. rolled out, so it should come as no surprise to hear that Apple is now working on improving that user experience with iOS 8.
Apple hasn't made any official announcements regarding iOS 8, but it's possible that the company could introduce it at WWDC this summer and roll it out to the public in the fall like it's done with other recent major iOS updates.Which of the rumored iOS 8 tweaks that've leaked out so far are your favorite?
