The Best New iOS 8, iOS 8.4 Features
While our main iOS 8 roundup focuses on the major changes announced by Apple, this iOS 8 roundup highlights some of the more interesting but smaller additions and refinements made to Apple's mobile operating system throughout its lifespan. Apple released iOS 8 to the public on September 17, 2014, two days ahead of the launch of the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus. Prior to the public launch, the software went through five developer betas before a golden master was released on September 9. The iOS 8.4 update looks likely to be the last update before we get iOS 9, which is likely to launch later in the year on the iPhone 6S. We'll go into the main features later, but this update's main feature is the revamped Music app, which introduces the Apple Music streaming service. There are also a few bugfixes, including a fix for the iMessage bug, where a message could crash your iPhone. Audio Books were always a slight pain to find in the Music app, but iOS 8.4 moves them into the iBooks app, which means you've got one place to find all of your books. It's a small, but welcome change.
