Apple introduced its iOS 8 during an extended presentation within the 2014 edition of the WWDC. The Apple representatives said that the new version of iOS will have a stronger Mac integration and less strict features of the Touch ID fingerprint sensor. The iPhone 6 was not mentioned during the conference.
The electronics company has the habit of launching its products on Tuesdays. Apple has scheduled a major event for the 9th of September, which obviously falls on a Tuesday. Therefore, it is believed that the iOS 8 will be on the Apple’s servers starting with the following day.
For the time being, developers can use the beta version of the iOS 8. The public at large will have to wait till the official launch. The iOS 8 beta 5 can be downloaded now and it costs about 99 US dollars per year. Unfortunately, the iOS 8 has lots of bug issues and the new beta has little chances to fix all the problems. People are advised to wait until the more stable version of the operating system is released. The iOS8 Gold Master will arrive at the beginning of September.
iOS 8 requires at least an iPhone 4S or a new iPad 2. It also functions on iPad mini, iPad mini 2 and an iPod Touch 5th generation.
