Battery statistics in iOS 8

Battery statistics in iOS 8

It is official, guys – Apple's iOS 8 platform has just been announced. And if you've been following our (pretty busy) news stream, then you should have a general idea of what major new features iOS 8 brings to the table. You know, things like the improved keyboard and messaging app, the new Health app, the "hands-free" upgrade to Siri, and the added "continuity" perks, to name a few examples.

The OS, however, is also loaded with not-so-major, but still pretty neat tweaks and improvements. One of them is the added breakdown on battery consumption – in iOS 8 you can see how much battery power a specific application is consuming, as demonstrated in the screenshot you see here. Apparently, data on battery use over the past 24 hours or the past 7 days can be provided. 

We'll be exploring iOS 8 in depth over the coming days. Chances are that we'll come across more minor features that didn't get highlighted during the WWDC 2014 keynote, such as this one.

Apple's core innovation: how to steal from others and get away with it.

Don't you get what is happening between Android and iOS right now? Both OS close the respective gaps they had on each other. iOS lacked Android features and Android lacked iOS software quality. For example: With KitKat Google wanted to enable Android to run smoothly on low end hardware. iOS does already run smoothly on low end hardware. At the same time, Apple closes the feature gap on Android. The companies just went two different approaches which will finally end in two pretty similar OS.

yea agree, i'm using both OS and love them all. Arguing about which one is better than the other sound stupid to me. Anyway i'm not expect something like this from iOS 8, it's nice update over the iOS 7.

If Apple's hardware is low end, why does the phone cost $650?

iPhone 4 or 4s ist low hardware from today's perspective.

Because apple charges far too much for their products, and consumers let them.

I don't think anyone claims it to be except you and the rest of the haters.
You're all stuck in your fantasy world pretending and playing along with your own accusations that eventually get imbedded into your black and white brains.

Innovation? Lol no.
Amazing update that caters to APPLE users and NOT ANDROID, YES.

Go fly a kite lol. Doesn't take much brain power there.

Apple fans do get defensive whenever Apple copies something (which is like all-the-time)...
They use words like "LOL", "Go Fly Kite", etc and abuse others like you did in your comment..

Yet it still is better, smoother, and cleaner looking in the end. Tsk tsk.

By the way, next time you see a car driving behind you, yell at the driver for their company "copying" your car because theirs has a new spoiler, exhaust, tinted windows, and an aux jack.
