iOS 8 is out and it's packing some new tricks. Here are some of the very interesting features that come with it. Check it out:
1. Shoot timelapse video
You could previously shoot slow motion video with iOS 7, but timelapse is the new thing now.
2. Use Siri like Shazam
Would this mean the end of Shazam? Activiate Siri and ask "What song is playing?" to run the query to find out a tune playing.
3. See what's using your battery
There's better battery life on the new iPhones, and now you can even check what's sapping your battery. Tap on Battery Usage to see which apps are eating up all your power.
4. Paste GIFs into Notes
Now you can copy and paste GIFs into your Notes app or select them from your photo library. Finally! GIFs are awesome.
5. Send your phone's last location
The latest feature in iOS 8 is being able to send your phone's last location. When your battery gets low, it will ping a location report before it dies.
6. Make your phone go gray
If you don't like color, there's a setting for a new Grayscale option.
7. Install a different keyboard
Now you don't have to use iOS's keyboard as its default anymore. You can try other keyboard apps available like Swype or Flesky or Swiftkey.
8. Answer calls on an iPad within the same network
Here's an interesting feature, but you'll have to wait for OS X Yosemite to arrive before you can do so. But when it does arrive, you can pass calls from your iPhone to your iPad. You'll need to update iOS 8 and be on the same network for it to happen.
