Yesterday during the WWDC Apple announced the features of its upcoming iOS 8. With this new release they plan to make available a number of new APIs, among them:
- Capability of adding interactive widgets to the notifications area
- Health Kit
- Home Kit
- Adding Extensions to the Share Sheet
- Multiple keyboards
- Camera APIs
We have downloaded and installed the iOS 8 beta and have successfully compiled apps against it. More thorough testing is underway. If you would like to start testing yourself, here’s a quick guide of how to set it up alongside your current XCode installation.
Make sure you log any findings or feature requests to Jira while we prepare for the official iOS 8 launch this fall.
