Learn when is new iOS8 update coming out for iPhone 5S/5/4S/4, iPad 3/4/5, iPad mini and iPod touch 5.

Operating system software (OS) is the heart and souls of the phone and tablet today. Apple iOS, the mobile platform developed and used by Apple’s range of smartphone has been always providing the users not only with an exceptional usability experience, but also with trend setting new features.

Apple iOS 7 had come up in October 2013 with some major overhauls in features, look and feel. But there were some areas which still have much room for improvement and changes. The need for next generation features in iOS 8 is more than it ever was, aimed at tough completion expected from Android 5 and WP9.


Therefore tech analyst are already discussing the Apple iOS 8 Features, Rumors, Concept and Whishlist. The craze about iOS 8 is subsequently huge enough as along with routine updates, the new iOS 8 is also reported to arrive with pretty exciting features.

When is new iOS8 update coming out for iPhone 5S and iPad

The whole industry is having its fingers crossed for iOS 8 and iPhone 6. Unconfirmed sources are feeding them with so-called leaks and speculations. It’s likely however that some of those rumors will turn true. To get an idea of what features could be expected from iOS 8, we need to give a look at the rumors.

When is new iOS8 update coming out for iPhone 5S and iPad?

Though we are not really sure about the exact iOS 8 release date. But after the first glimpses of new iOS8 at Apple Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) 2014 on June 2-6 in San Francisco, the iOS8 beta 1 SDK for iOS developers is available. The public release new iOS8 platform is expected in the early October 2014 along with the next generation iPhone 6 Release Date.

Apple is scheduled to release the an array of new products in the fall this year that includes new iPhone 6, iPhone 6C, iPad Pro, iPad mini 2014, iPod touch 6 and an amazing iWatch. In the tech circle, rumors on the possible specs and features of these products are running high.

iOS 8 will be used in iPhones, iPads as well as the iWatches which is going to be released this year for the first time. There are rumours in the air that iOS 8 will come with a Healthbook app which will keep a vigilant eye on the user’s vital signs starting from heart rate, sugar level, blood pressure, hydration level and many other important aspects. There are rumors that this feature has been specially introduced for the iWatch. So wear your watch while heading for a workout session or a party and you will know how many calories you have lost or gained in the process. We have also heard the Healthbook app will regularly inform you about the medicines that you need to consume daily.

Though we have not received any confirmation about the rumored health app from the manufacturers themselves, but we are quite sure about it as the M7 chip have been used in the iPhone which can capture motion data, acts as an accelerometer, compass and gyroscope. All these are required for measuring the vital signs of the individual.

Apart from that we also expect the iOS 8 to come up with better and much more advanced security features. Lately, we have heard Tim Cook to highlight about the ever increasing amount of commerce that is conducted through iOS platform and thus they are planning to add on to its security features for the benefit of the iGadget users. Touch ID was introduced in iOS 7 and we expect more in iOS 8. However, along with the introduction of this improvement we also expect Apple to bring about some modifications such as multiple accounts so that at least some apps of the iPhone remains accessible to the users near and dear ones. As too much personalization can turn out to be a threat for the users as well.

Some improvisations are also needed in Siri, the voice activated virtual assistant accessible from the iGadget. A female voice giving direction to the users will be appreciable or else it becomes really monotonous for the users as they have been hearing to the same male voice for a couple of years.

It’s high time that Facetime is updated to provide the users with group video chat facility. Sypke is already providing this facility and so it’s time for the Apple developers to pull up their socks for including such features in iOS 8.

It will be appreciable if Apple gives more independence to the users with regard to controlling its control center. The users should be given the option to decide which apps they want to keep in the control center and which one they want to remove.

Posted byAdnan Malik Apr 23, 2014 0 comments

This is an amazing iWatch Concept Design, the best ever so far with rumors roundup about Apple iWatch Features and its release date in 2014.

iFans are very excited to get the first look of this wearable device, since the time we heard rumors about Apple expanding its product line in the smartwatch market.

Although there is no official announcement from Apple but tech enthusiasts are coming up with unique and innovative iWatch design concepts every day.

But according to unofficial news report, the new wearable computing device, iWatch is still in-development and will release in September 2014. It is the time when Apple refreshes its products line including new iPhone 6, iPhone 6C, iPad Pro, iPad mini 2014, iPod touch 6, this fall.


Samsung on their part have decided to go earlier with Samsung GEAR 2 and Samsung GEAR fit smartwatch, to avoid competition from its fierce rival.

iWatch Concept Design, Rumors and Features

A new iWatch concept has been unveiled by FuseChicken, showing off the rumored smartwatch in action. The concept appears to combine a Nike and Apple design, resulting in a great-looking, slim device. Apple hired one of Nike's top designers, Ben Schaffer, to work on wearable products in September. While at Nike, Schaffer was the Studio Director of Innovation Kitchen, which is the company's research and development lab that produced the Nike Fuel Band, a wristband that allows users to keep track of personal fitness habits.

iWatch Concept Design, Rumors and Features

A new Apple iWatch concept design offers a glimpse at how the iWatch might look if Apple ever decides to create it. Considering the company’s close relationship with Nike (Apple CEO Tim Cook is on Nike’s board of directors and wears a Fuelband regularly), this concept design is not so far-fetched.

Apple iWatch Concept Video

This iWatch animation image shows a Nike+ Fuelband-style device with a display that cycles through the time and date, an iTunes-style music player, and a menu featuring the icons for Apple’s iMessage and Calendar apps. The mockup also includes a Nike+ Fuelband app.

This iWatch Concept video is created by Thomas Bogner at Germany’s Technische Hochschule Deggendorf, the concept device was inspired by his desire to have a Nike+ Fuelband with more features.


iWatch Features

The iWatch has been on the cards for a LONG TIME now, and while Apple’s tight security has lapsed somewhat over the years. Apple has experienced some difficulties in getting the iWatch off the ground. Problems have included the screen technology, battery power and other corporate problems.

The LA Times reports that the latest patent granted to Apple shows that the company is making a curved screen iWatch, following in the footsteps of of Samsung and LG.

KoreaHerald, also reported on LG's apparent deal with Apple and quotes an anonymous source saying:
LG Display has been in talks over flexible organic light-emitting diode panels for quite a while and it looks like it will be sealing the deal with Apple.
As per previous rumour, Apple is thought to still be in a prototype testing phase and has multiple models with different sized screens in testing. These are said to inlcude a 1.4-inch model, a 1.5-inch model and a 1.6-inch model.

The Chosun Ilbo, citing unnamed “industry sources”, reports that Apple is currently working with three design prototypes with flexible plastic OLED screens. One such prototype with a 1.5-inch flexible OLED panel appears to have been given a limited production run, presumably for test units, while the other two with 1.3-inch and 1.4-inch screens are still being worked on.

HealthBook App is undoubtedly one of the most exciting iWatch feature that has attracted maximum attention. It keeps check on the vital statistics of the wearer. This app is rumored to be a part of iOS 8 Features.

iWatch Rumors

The iWatch can be synchronized through Bluetooth low energy. iOS 8 is predicted to come with support for a new app called Healthbook that will monitor your health parameters like steps taken, calories burned, weight lost and track vital signs like blood pressure, heart rate and other blood-related parameters like glucose levels. All this data would likely be obtained by the sensors on the iWatch. It’s safe to assume that the iWatch will sync data with the Healthbook app to provide up to date information on the user’s health.

Yesterday, a report claimed that Apple will launch iWatch in Q3 2014, which goes well in line with this new revelation as well. We will hope to learn more about this new wearable from Apple in the coming days.

Stay tuned for more updates on iWatch and do share with us your expectations.

Google Glasses is going for sale and anyone living in U.S can buy Google Glass on April 15, 2014.

The Google Glasses Project features an Android based wearable computer in the form of Augmented Reality Goggles and is opening for sale only for 24 hours.

This opportunity comes as a surprise to those who hope to become a Glass Explorer. Last year, the company has increased their Glass Explorer invitations, making the product less exclusive, as some Google Play Music All Access subscribers, were able to purchase the Google Glass.

Millions of gadget lovers are still anxiously waiting for the Google Glass Release Date worldwide. But so far the only way to get Google Glass device has been through official waiting list or by having a Glass owner invite.

Through the #ifihadglass hashtag, people who were interested in becoming an Explorer were encouraged to share what they would do if they owned a pair. The feedback prompted Google to expand the Explorer program. Google said in the post:
Our Explorers are moms, artists, surgeons, rockers, and each new Explorer has brought a new perspective that is making Glass better. But every day we get requests from those of you who haven’t found a way into the program yet, and we want your feedback too.
Google is joining hands with the frame giant behind Ray-Ban and other high-end brands to create and sell Glass Internet-linked eyewear in the USA. The partnership with Luxottica was a step toward entry into the emerging smart eyewear market.

Google has been working to burnish the image of Glass, which has triggered concerns about privacy, because the devices are capable of capturing pictures and video. Google recently sent out a release to debunk Glass myths including that it invades privacy, distracts wearers by saying:
If someone wants to secretly record you, there are much, much better cameras out there than one you wear conspicuously on your face and that lights up every time you give a voice command or press a button.
All this seems like a positive thing, and it allows us to confirm our earlier suspicions that the consumer product of Google Glass can be expected later this year, and maybe we could then expect a better sales policy from Google.
