# Apple releases iOS 8 for developers

Apple officially announced iOS 8 at its annual WWDC conference in San Francisco on Monday. People attending the conference got the iOS 8 beta on Monday, while everyone else can get their fingers on the new software in the fall. There's no visual overhaul(the flat icons still remain), yet there are many software enhancements out...

Most importantly, iOS 8 adds widgets, Touch ID for third-party apps, and a keyboard which learns as you type.

WIDGETS: The widgets aren't much similar to the android widgets(that's the first thing which came to my mind when I heard about widgets in the iPhone). You can only interact to notifications, like responding to them even through the lock screen.

THE KEYBOARD: Apple has done great work to invent a keyboard that adapts your writing style. Nope, there's no swype typing yet, but we could expect soon. It's called QuickType, by which you get word suggestions (in the manner of Android) in 16 different languages!

THE EMAIL APP: The email improved, with more gestures added to flag or delete messages.

PHOTOS: The Photo app has improved, enhancing various aspects in editing your photos.

There were also various other improvements, thanks to CNET, are listed below:

Auto night mode in iBooks

Battery usage by app

24 new dictation languages

Camera timer

Instant burst mode

Separate focus and exposure in Camera

Improved zoom for accesibility

In Case of Emergency card

Purchase iTunes content with Siri

Rich text editing in Notes

Touch ID to exit from Guided Access

Indian Tagalog, Irish Gaelic, and Slovenian keyboards

Private browsing per tab in Safari

See your books as a series in iBooks

DuckDuckGo support in Safari

Thanks and Regards,

This discussion board is a place to discuss our Daily Challenges and the math and science related to those challenges. Explanations are more than just a solution — they should explain the steps and thinking strategies that you used to obtain the solution. Comments should further the discussion of math and science.

When posting on Brilliant:

• Use the emojis to react to an explanation, whether you're congratulating a job well done , or just really confused .
• Ask specific questions about the challenge or the steps in somebody's explanation. Well-posed questions can add a lot to the discussion, but posting "I don't understand!" doesn't help anyone.
• Try to contribute something new to the discussion, whether it is an extension, generalization or other idea related to the challenge.
