Apple iOS 8: check out all the new features, compatibility and beta download

After the biggest visual overhaul in iOS history last year, the new iOS 8 doesn't offer a bold and freshly overhauled look, but will bring many brand new features to your aging iOS device, and improved functionality. They will be coming in the fall to the Apple iPhone 4s, iPhone 5, iPhone 5c, or iPhone 5s, your iPad 2iPad 3 (new iPad), iPad 4, or iPad mini and mini 2 tablets, as well as your iPod touch 5th generation media player. Apple's iOS 8 is arriving to the above devices in the fall, while developers can get their hands on the beta version almost immediately, as usual.

Apart from the grandstanders, like the new Health application, or the Interactive Notifications set, we also have a smorgasbord of smaller feature update and improvements. And the news is "massive," as Apple says, since iOS 8 will also allow third-party keyboards, and even foreign widgets in the notifications center for the first time. Check out some of the main iOS 8 features below, and tell us what you think about Apple's latest mobile operating system update.
