    Predictive typing, quick reply. This is amazing! This is the release we've been waiting for guys. Awesome keyboard and the refinements we've wanted. Group messages and enhancements? YES APPLE. I WANT NOW!

    Sounds like you will be able to type faster than you are able to think.

    It's nice Apple listened to the jailbreak community cause that's where all of these came from. Still a way to go, but they are getting there.

    It is nothing revolutionary yet. It is just catching up with the jailbreak community and Android phones with predictive typing. Let's see if some updated stuff with Siri comes up.

    isn't this something that was on Android?

    I tested a Galaxy S4 last year and thought I saw this. i preferred autocorrect for me at the time and was glad to be back...i'd forgot to keep looking up for text.

    BUT as a quick reply feature it could be nice.

    Sure other devices have it. Apple hasn't done it first but it's nice to finally have it. iCloud drive too. Ah man this is sweet. Finally the iOS we wanted!

    I agree it is nice adding things built in to make it better. I just don't think it's revolutionary yet, but it's nice that you don't need to jailbreak for those things on iOS. Those are things I haven't wanted personally though.

    LOL, yep! Had it on my S3 and SwiftKey was one of the best that I used. Still, it will be nice to have it on my iPhone and iPad. My mind is far from blown, but it looks like they are finally trying to catch up to the Android community.

    wow! I hope i can watch the streaming some time later as I am at work right now. I'm seeing a lot of mixed opinions. I always felt like the new updates sucked but I always end up warming up to it and loving it.

    This one release definitely seems to have quite a bit of what a lot of people have been wanting for a long time.

    iOS 7/iOS 8 now feels complete. This year is a hardware year, though. iOS 9 will be even better next year. Sweet release! Most of the small little things we wanted, we have now!

    iOS 8 takes everything it was missing from Android and made it better. Android widgets have always sucked, and implementing them into Notification Center is something I've been hoping for.

    The only thing missing is the ability to set default apps. Maybe that is in iOS 8 and just wasn't mentioned.

    How not mindblowing iOS 8 is is mindblowing itself.

    Your mind is blown by things Android has had for some time now.
