iOS 8 review

Last year Apple stripped iOS bare in order to redefine how we do things. This year they build atop everything that came before in order to redefine what we can do.

iOS 8 is the latest version of the operating system software that powers every iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad. That's hundreds of millions of mobile devices used day in, day out, by hundreds of millions of people around the world.

It includes updates to Messages and Photos, and an all-new Health app, a predictive keyboard and contextual Spotlight, interactive notifications and better Mail and Safari, Family Sharing options and Continuity workflows, and there's Extensibility, which allows for custom keyboards, custom sharing and action options, custom photo filters and effects, notification center widgets, iCloud Drive, and custom storage providers.

There are also new frameworks like HomeKit for home automation, manual camera controls, Touch ID authentication for third party apps, SpriteKit, SceneKit, and Metal for games, and a new programming language called Swift.

Yang to iOS 7’s yin, iOS 8 is a functional rejuvenation that counterbalances last year's visual refresh. And just like last year, when iOS 7 was called the biggest redesign since the first iPhone shipped in 2007, iOS 8 is being called the most important upgrade since the App Store launched in 2008. So, is it?

Read on for our comprehensive review of iOS 8.

How to use Family Sharing for iTunes and App Store accounts in iOS 8

Family Sharing is a new feature in iOS 8 that lets your entire family share purchases from both iTunes and the App Store without having to share the same Apple ID. More than that, parents require that younger children ask permission before purchasing content. You can then receive a request and either accept or deny it right from your own iPhone or iPad. To get started with Family Sharing, you'll need to perform a few steps in order to set it up.

iPhone 6 Plus skinny — and not so skinny — jeans test. Will it pocket?!

The iPhone 6 Plus is 5.5-inches of glass and aluminum and... that might be a little big to fit in some people's pockets. To find out for sure, Georgia and I each grabbed the iPhone 6 Plus and tried to put it in our jean pockets. She was wearing skinny hipster acid watch jeans (and she's tiny), and I was wearing relaxed fit, opposite-of-hipster jeans. So, what were the results?

The update enables a folder within Windows Explorer (under Favorites) that allows iCloud users to view and edit files, drag & drop, and create new folders. Of course you'll need to be running iOS 8 to take advantage of iCloud Drive at all.
