At worldwide Developers Conference in San Francisco, Apple introduced its latest mobile operating system 'iOS8' for iPhone and iPad. A biggest release ever happened to the developer community and app world.

Tim Cook - CEO of Apple depicted the new operating system will help developers to build a sort of uniqueness in their functionalities.

These are some highlights over the new features of iOS8:
