WhatsApp co-founder "flattered" that iOS 8's iMessage is "borrowing" core WhatsApp features
Snapchat also has a stick to beat Apple with – the “self-destructing” messaging feature that will arrive on board of iMessage along with iOS 8 is among the core aspects of Snapchat. Thus, it will come to no surprise if the latter also comes out and criticizes Cupertino for “borrowing” this functionality.
An Australian company, named HealthKit, also got pretty annoyed at Apple. It appears that the tech giant could have forgotten to secure a trademark for its new health-centric product in the Land Down Under.
