iOS 8 concept brings together all the rumors in one video
We've heard quite a few rumors on the topic of iOS 8, and many of them sound fairly reliable, especially if you assume that the iWatch is real and will be released as part of Apple's 2014 lineup. Today, TechCrunch released a nice new video that gathers up all of the various rumors that we've seen so far and mashes them together.

Obviously, the video essentially amounts to a rumor roundup combined with a concept render, but it does cover all of the more interesting things we've seen. The big pieces are those that would potentially connect to the iWatch, like the new Healthbook app, which would track various items. It's unclear exactly what would be included beyond the usual heart rate, pedometer, distance, calorie tracking, etc. The video shows options for bloodwork, hydration, and blood pressure, but there have been rumors that those added features wouldn't make the cut, because it would then add required FDA certification for the iWatch. 

The video also shows off what a potential Notification Center redesign could look like, as well as added Siri features with Shazam's help, and of course CarPlay. There have been other iOS 8 rumors, but the ones that made the video are the ones that have been repeated enough to seem reliable. Nothing looks to be a huge change, but this has been shaping up to be a year Apple focuses on hardware more than software.

Very minor 'updates'... At Best.

No different than their hardware designs of the past (seemingly) forever.

Yeah, I don't know why Phonearena loves concept videos so much..

Concept videos are like mental masturbation. Someone on PA gets off on that.

More articles, more site traffic, more ad revenues.
Yes all tech sites loove posting concepts and rumors but PA is just down right sucker. So sucker that its credibility loses when their rumors doesnt make sense.

CarPlay is really stupid to me. Unless you're going to implement it for all cars & not just top of the line luxury vehicles like Audi, Mercedes, Lexus and BMW...what's the use? Everybody with iPhones don't have luxury cars, soooo......who are they really gearing CarPlay to?

"And you'll soon be able to add CarPlay to your current car with an aftermarket system " I copied that from their website you can check it out

He sounds like one of those insecure jocks trying to compensate for something. Big redneck trucks and an iPhone, everyone respects that.

I really expected a lot more, even if this is just a concept video. I see no real changes to make me want to return to an iphone. I'm not a hater as I'm typing this on an iPad.

Things that apple need fix while upgrading to ios 8

Remove the useless dock bar that's on bottom of screen, it simply makes the screen look smaller and spoils the fun of having a wallpaper too

Replace the do not disturb toggle on the control centre n replace it with 3G
It's easier that way to turn 3G on n off

Put the invert color toggle in accessibility to good use by creating a black theme instead of that sick looking X-ray look..black theme will be easy on eyes n will be a change from the routine bright white... (Reduce white point isn't helping)

We need couple of changes in your keyboard...or rather options...like swipe, flow & alphanumeric n stuff...

It's high time u guys put a battery saver option

Please make the caller picture to be displayed in full screen the small circle ain't cool guys...
