    With the WWDC dates announced as June 2nd - 5th, we're almost exactly 2 months until we see iOS 8.

    Seems like just yesterday we saw iOS 7!

    It's still going to be iOS7 with some minor changes and additions. Doesn't completely overwrite iOS7...

    I agree, with a major redesign only happening a year ago, and 7.1 recently being released, iOS8 might not even be so different, if they even announce an actual "iOS8"

    They can refine the operating system to make it a lot faster, which is what a lot of people were complaining about.

    Since iOS7 has been a major revamp, I wonder what improvements Apple has planned.

    Absolutely and hopefully so. That doesn't make it a brand new "iOS 8" though.

    It's gonna be just like iOS 7 with a few improvements ad new features. Just like iOS 2-6 improved each version but looked almost the same. I don't understand why people think it'll be totally different, just look at iOS 2-6, they all looked nearly identical.

    There will be an iOS 8. There are always .1 releases with every version of iOS, and yet, a new version is still released.

    It will be very similar to iOS 7, with likely speed improvements, some more defined features, redefining new ones added in iOS 7, along with some brand new apps/features.

    There may be slight UI tweaks as well.

    All in all, I love iOS 7 and I'm excited to see what iOS 8 will bring.

    UI was just a skinning. It's largely the same. The only big 'features' related to UI was Safari, and the side gesture swiping.


    Healthbook based on leaks is a strong likelyhood..

    They started moving to swiping at side of screen for forward back, to eliminate some hand stretching to the top. I'd like to see more UI/gesture adjustments to cope with another display size growth.

    :rolleyes:

    And control center.
    And the notification center.
    And the weather app.
    And the lock screen.
    And the app switcher.
    And the camera.
    And...

    Here is a timeline:

    - Apple announces iOS 8
    - People complain
    - Graphic designers with no jobs or names proclaim how they could have done better.
    - Beta comes out
    - Threads with "how do I register a UDID" start popping up everywhere
    - Non-developers that frequent these forums install iOS 8.
    - Complaints about battery life
    - Complaints about how Apple doesn't know what they're doing
    - Beta 2 comes out
    - Repeat above
    - Beta 3 comes out
    - repeat above.

    iOS 8 goes Gold
    - The masses accept it
    - The people here who don't have much going on in their lives begin to look for bugs in workflows that no one would ever use.


    I'm ready!

    Hopefully it'll work.

    ----------

    You forgot about the "its a beta" response to an issue that occurs during beta phase, and even when it makes its way to GM people ignore it.

    My favorite is when people voluntarily install a Beta OS and then complain about how stuff does not work and then they end up telling others how it sucks BEFORE it's even public.

    I guess I don't blame Google for charging $1500 for Google Glass for developer review. Nothing is worse than word of mouth trashing a product that doesn't publicly exist yet.

    Unfortunately, whenever it is, it'll be an excuse for all the whingers and moaners to come creeping out from under their stones again! ;)

    True. Although I complain about things missing/broken in betas, it bothers me more that things still didn't make their way into the GM or that they're still not functioning properly.

    If I could choose to sticky anything, I would vote for your post. So right after it all happens we can refer to it and be like "Damn, he was right!"

    Probably a few refinements to the post such as "Apple is doomed or iOS 8 sucks and iOS 6 was better" and "It's a beta" and that should cover all the bases :p

    iOS 7 is not much more than a bad coat of paint.

    iOS 8 is better being awesome, I wouldn't touch anything iOS 7-infested with a totem pole.

    I am hoping the spice things up a little and reveal iOS 7.5, or go straight to iOS X, just skip 8 and 9.

    On that case prepare to be disappointed! What you see on iOS 7 isn't going anywhere!

    they could go to iOSX that had 3D projected hologram UI you can swipe in the air and throw at TV's for airplay and people would still whine.
