Apple Unveils iOS 8

As expected, Apple provided a glimpse of the much anticipated iOS 8.
Apple® today unveiled iOS 8, the biggest release since the launch of the App Store℠, giving users incredible new features and developers the tools to create amazing new apps. iOS 8 delivers a simpler, faster and more intuitive user experience, including iCloud® Photo Library, allowing you to enjoy your photos and videos more easily across your devices; new Messages features to easily share voice, video or photos with just a swipe; and an entirely new Health app that gives you a clear overview of your health and fitness data all in one place. iOS 8 also includes predictive typing for Apple’s QuickType™ keyboard; Family Sharing, the easiest way to share purchases, photos and calendars within the same household; and iCloud Drive™, so you can store files and access them from anywhere.​

Developers have access to iOS 8 beta immediately and public betas are expected late summer.

The coolest feature isn't the greater storage of photos but the new way to activate Siri. Now Siri can be called upon with a simple - "Hey Siri" - and up pops the application.
