The best news is that iOS 8 won't be hobbled on any of Apple's older iPhones in the way that iOS 7 was limited on the iPhone 4. Every iPhone will get the full iOS 8 experience.
Agreed.For those that feel iOS 8 was a minor release on the feature side, they simply don't see the limitless potential apple has given developers to make iOS 8 the most powerful usable iOS yet.The addition of customizable widgets and sharing is huge for iOS and huge for the consumer.Yes android had those features, but they were not implemented as elegantly and as user friendly as Apple has presented with iOS 8. Consumers will have no problem taking advantage of all iOS 8...
I love that Apple added customization without adding complexity. Novice users will easily be able to add widgets from apps they already have without having to go to a separate widget store (ie OS X) and with the simple "More" option in the share sheet it's easy to customize share options for apps that already have social sharing capabilities. IMO iOS 8 is a home run. Apple listened to customers that wanted more customization without adding layers of complexity and...
Another thing I loved about WWDC was the focus on spotlight.With Spotlight's web search feature Apple is going to shift hundreds of millions of iOS and Mac customers away from google search.Genius.
I really enjoyed both OS X and iOS 8's new feature set. Apple gave everyone what they wanted plus some. We now have quick reply, a file system, better keyboards, safari extensions, and widgets all introduced in one version of iOS. The continuity stuff in Mac was awesome as well. As a side note, I can see that Apple has really paved the way for future wearable devices that take advantage of continuity and Apple's other developer features released today.
  I agree with this.  The iWatch is being made as an iPod replacement. The benefits of the iWatch over the iPods is the health and sensor data, as well as connectivity to iPhones and iPads. Apple will finally give smart watches a purpose, because currently most consumers don't see a need for them.
 That is easily remedied by having different color backgrounds on the screen. People can choose whatever watch face they want whether it be mickey mouse or plain black.
Looks like an edge to edge display too lol
Well I see no other alternative for this fall.There's no way the 4S hangs around another year and there's no way Apple builds a new $0 model from scratch.That leaves the 5C (the 5S will likely be retired for good) as the free model meaning Apple has to create a new mid-tier and high end.If the next iPhones are liquid metal than production should be far easier than it was for the 5S. With that being the case Apple could probably feasibly make an all new liquid metal phone...
The 5C is probably not going anywhere. It'll be free next year and Apple will probably launch 2 new models. A new mid tier model and a new high end model. The biggest differentiator will be screen-size but both new models will carry a new unique design, and both will have Touch ID.
