iOS 8 SMS sharing between iPhone and iPad will now arrive in October

Apple has made a slight change to its website detailing continuity in iOS 8, with a note that the handoff of SMS/MMS between iOS devices will now be coming in October. No mention is made on the site about a new date for iOS 8's voice call handoff feature, so it seems like that might come with the initial release of iOS 8 on Wednesday, September 17.

SMS handoff between devices running iOS 8, as well as Macs running OS X Yosemite, is one of the major features of Continuity on both operating system. Be sure to check out our overview of SMS/MMS handoff.

Are you disappointed by this delay? Sound off in the comments.
