While the big news is that the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus are almost available, the OS that powers these new devices has almost slipped under the radar. If you are wondering what all the fuss is about, there is a full review that highlights a bunch of new features of this OS and you may already be familiar with some of them if you are currently using an Android device. That's right, some of these are long overdue - but worth the wait apparently.
As usual, there are some devices that will iOS 8, but won't enjoy the full feature list. The new Health app, for example, will only come to the iPhones (4s and later) and fifth-gen iPod touch. Meaning, no iPad support. Additionally, the Continuity feature, which makes it possible to hand off content from mobile to desktop (and vice versa), is only available to the iPhone 5 and later, latest iPod touch, fourth-gen iPad and later and both iPad minis.
