Apple iOS 8 | Available Today

  • Author:
  • Updated:

The introduction of iOS 7 last year ushered in an entirely new design across all of Apple's devices. And today's launch of iOS 8, which we previewed here in detail, builds on the new functionality and lays the groundwork for even more enhancements to come. Set to release at 1 p.m. Eastern today, September 17, you can bet your britches that the over-the-air update available for iPhone 4S and later, iPad 2 and later, iPad Mini, and the fifth-generation iPod Touch will not be as smooth and complaint free as the new interface we have previewed after the jump in detail. Just to give you a taste of some of the new features to come, you can expect new compatibility with more third-party keyboards, more camera controls, widgets, more home automation options, built-in health and fitness tools, and intra-app interaction. See more after the jump and get your trigger-thumb ready to update as soon as the badge hits your screen.
