What: iOS 8 is announced at that moment at the WWDC 2014 San Francisco. plus Mac OS X Yosemite is announced as followup for OS X Maverics. iOS 8 and Yosemite will integrate more together. The iOS Mac OSX flow…

What are the new features in iOS8 and how will it integrate? What will a Apple user notice when they install them on their Mac and iOS devices. Here is in short the summary of these new features:
  • Family Share you can share your iBooks with your family. 
  • iPhoto has enhanced editing tools like auto-staighten en color-correct.
  • Siri has Shazam built-in.
  • Healthkit is a new framework for developers of health apps that can communicate / integrate with each other. Till now, all health apps were silo apps.
  • Widgets! iOS 8 allows 3rd parties to add widgets to other apps. for example add a filter widget to the iPhoto app.
  • AirDrop now works within Mac and iOS, wauw (-:
  •  Spotlight, search contact info and all documents, appointments you have from the contact. Ow, Spotlight is it is a big center search bar
  • Calendar and Notification Center have a refreshed look and views.
  • iCloud drive, search with Finder app anything you have ever saved. It auto synced like DropBox across all your devices.
  • Mail Drop, a new feature and it let you send huge sized emails with up to 5 Gbytes attachements. How it works? the attachment is stored in iCloud and a link to it is added to the newsletter letter.
  • Safari browser, is standards-compliant, does not need any plugin to show videos. Safari has a new one-click social media sharing button. And it is the fastest Java script processor.
  • If the Mac has no WiFi connection, it will sense and suggests your iPhone’s tethering capability in a popup list on your Mac. Super easy tethering.
  • You can invent or receive calls with you Mac or iPhone. A notification will popup asking whether you like to reply the shout.
  • Phone number highlighting on a webpage, you can go and signal from your Mac.
  • New soft keyboard on iOS 8.
  • Quick Type, it suggests how you speak. And it works in iMessage,  e mail, whatever. Wow, iOS will teach me how to speak!
  • Tap to Talk feature in iMessage, send directly voice messages.
  • Group messaging in iMessage is improved, chatroom or thread moderation?! kick participants???
  • iPhoto now syncs all your photo’s to any of your devices. All stored in iCloud. Prices for storage space? The first 5GB of iCloud storage for those shots is free, 20GB for a buck a month and 200GB is available for $4.
  • TouchID, as a conclusion of that feature, by 85% of users now have a passcode implementation.
  • HomeKit home automation? Apple’s been working with “the leaders” in home automation, to come up with a wireless protocol that lets you pair securely, control individual devices, group devices and control your home via Siri. Control your lights, doors, windows, fridge. 
When will it be available for the enduser? Later that year.

Yes, Apple did it. The integrated a fingerprint sensor in the iPhone 5S home button. So what can you do with it? Ofcourse to unlock your iPhone with one touch of your thumb on the sensor. No typing of the passcode anymore yay! Well another example is “Since it’s built in, you can produce iTunes purchases by using your finger to authenticate.” Buying stuff with just your finger dangerous but safe! Dangerous considering is it so easy to shop and pay, and safe considering you are the only person that can pay. Not your kids after getting your passcode plus your iTunes password :-(.

The sensor is 170 microns thin, 500 ppi resolution, scans sub-epidermal skin layers and has 360-degree readability. “It reads your fingerprint at an entirely new level.” via Engadget

The iPhone 5C can be pre-ordered from September 13th. And both iPhone 5C and 5S will be available September the 20th in the stores of the regular countries and additionally in China !! buy Apple shares now :-)

Remember the prices are with a 2 year contract. So I guess in many european countries, you can get one without simlock and subscription. But next the prices are much higher than with plans.
