With new features, Apple released iOS 8 in September. This update offers more simplicity and connectivity in Apple devices.

Available on iPhone 4s’s and up, the update reached out to the majority of Apple’s customers. It was available on iPad 2’s and up, and the fourth generation iPod touch. Making it such a highly available update allowed users to access it, but in lower generation devices, some problems occurred.

Slow operation and short battery life affected some iPhone 4s customers, but the advanced software made up for problems.

Allowing calls over Wifi, easy contact access, ApplePay and third-party keyboard compatibility were all featured in the update. Easy access to contacts with a double tap of the home button is so much easier than having to access the contacts app from the utilities folder.

ApplePay allows iPhone 6 and 6 Plus users to pay online and in stores with the TouchID scanner. This is the first technological advancement of its kind. Third-Party keyboard compatibility lets keyboard developers to reach out to iPhone users. Through the App Store, users can now download and use Swipe keyboards, gif keyboards and multiple other types according to their preference.
