Just in case you haven’t been avidly following Apple sites or even mainstream news related to the brand new version of the iPad and iPhone operating system, today is the day that iOS 8 will be released to the public. It is expected to be released at 10AM Pacific / 1:00PM Eastern.
iOS 8 brings a number of exciting new features to the iPad that greatly improve its interaction with the Mac, beefed up Photos and Messages apps, health-focused features, a much-improved iCloud, and third party keyboards.
Apple has a big, bold page devoted to what’s new in iOS 8 – it’s well worth a look to get yourself a little excited about what’s coming a little later today.
