iOS 7 came up in 2013 with a major overhaul in its design and user interface. Moreover, some new and advanced features were being also added which made the iPhone users really happy and satisfied. But we human beings are always driven by the hope of a better and more comfortable tomorrow and thus we have come up yet again with some changes and added features that we expect in iOS 8 which is going to get released in 2014. Here are the ten features that we look forward to be present in iOS 8.
Too Much Personalised
iOS 7 is too much personalised. Though it is good because we have started storing many classified information in our phone which a stranger should not gain access to, but at times it becomes too difficult. With due respect to their idea of a personalized phone, they should make some provisions for a child or guest account so that our family can have access to at least some features of the phone.
iPhones come with some default application preinstalled in it and in no way we can hide them. This is a problem with iOS since its inception. Apple developers must understand that preference of the consumer might differ and therefore they should be given some liberty to choose the app they like to use after spending a fortune on the phone.
Though the 7th version of the iOS was released this year, but still it does not have the capability of organizing and managing the documents well. There is no way by which a file can be directly attached from the phone to the mailbox. Therefore, in the next version we expect some betterment in this respect as well.
Better Apps Management System
The iCloud app of iOS should be developed further so that the iPhone users can easily manage apps. Moreover, automatic update about the latest apps (both free and premium versions) should be made available to users so that they do not have to take the trouble using IAP.
Group Chat in Face Time
Face Time was conceived by Apple developers to support video calling in iOS. Though the iPhone users are extremely satisfied with the quality of video call and all other features of this app, but from next time we would be happy to see Face Time supporting group video and voice call.
Stronger Co-ordination between Apps
iOS 7 is not at all good at multitasking. Just in case you are editing a document using an iPhone app and your phone starts ringing, there are remote chances of you getting back the document in the same stageas you have left it at last. So we expect the Apple developers to look into this problem and come up with a viable solution.
We understand that notifying the user about the various updates that are due is important, but untimely notifications actually annoys the iPhone users. Therefore, in iOS 8 we expect a better notification manager whereby the users will be able to schedule the notifications to show up only in the weekends or weekdays according to the preference of the users. In this way they will be manage the issues in the phone in a much better way.
Improved Editing of Text
Cut, copy and paste are the three most widely used actions used by an individual while handling a text. These three actions do not work smoothly in iOS7 and thus there is a definite need to overhaul this feature of iOS.
OS X Mavericks has a unique ability to do multiple works in different fronts. For example, if a user get a notification to update while he is playing game, he can continue with the update of the phone without causing the game to stop. We expect iOS 8 to be updated with such multitasking facility as well.
iOS 7 do not support the facility to toggle over different applications at a single time. In iOS 8 we expect this feature to be integrated so that we can have a better experience while using the iPhone 6.
These are some of the improvements that we would like to see in iOS 8 so that the iPhone users can actually boast about their OS in comparison to the other OS for mobile platform.
