I saw the photos look different and the camera has time-lapse and burst mode but everything else seems the same. Help me understand what's new here!! iphone 5s
You can install custom keyboards. Notification centre can contain widgets. Apps can use touchid. Apps can use interactive notifications (eg quick reply to messages by sliding down the notification banner). Apps can now share files between each other. + lots more...look on the Apple website.
Yes, they are all out to eat your batteries
Most of the announced features are either missing or don't work properly.
1. iCloud Photo Library - not there for many people;
2. HealthKit - all apps that used it pulled at the last minute;
3. iCloud Drive - not yet implemented in any apps as far as I can tell.
Not many apps updated yet to take advantage of the new features. I've only had about 3 updates since iOS 8 dropped so I'm guessing the app store is getting hammered.
This update contains hundreds of new features, including the following:
Tap to Talk to send your voice, a video or a photo with just a swipe
Group messaging options to name a conversation, add a contact, remove a contact, or leave a conversation
New details view with Do Not Disturb, location sharing and attachments view
Smart editing tools to adjust light and color with a swipe
Fine-tune controls to adjust exposure, brightness, contrast, highlights, shadows and more
Search by date, location, or alb.....................
