Apple unveiled the new version of its mobile operating system, iOS 8, at its annual WWDC event. iOS 8 introduces a number of new features, some of which would empower us to pull the kill switch on some of the most popular apps around. This means Apple would succeed in getting at least some users move away from these popular apps. We take a look at 5 such apps that Apple is gunning for with iOS 8.
Apple’s updated Messages app allows users send audio files and location and have group chats.
Apple has introduced a new app called iCloud Drive that lets users store and sync their files with its iCloud.
One of the features listed in an iOS 8 slide was Wi-Fi calling. While Apple already allows users to make iPhone to iPhone free calls via FaceTime and FaceTime Audio, it will now allow them to make calls from their Macs via their iPhones.
iOS 8 also offers a new feature called Markup which allows users to draw and annotate within mail messages. It’s Mail’s built-in image editor.
The new Photo app in iOS 8 offers advanced editing tools. Users can modify the light in a photo with a single control and adjust exposure, brightness, contrast, and other attributes. This means users will no longer need image editing and composition apps like Camera+.
