Apple releases iOS 8, starts serving upgrade downloads

Apple iOS 8 messaging features on the iPhone

Apple today shipped the free upgrade to iOS 8 for existing iPhone and iPad owners, opening up the download floodgates at 1 p.m. ET, as expected.
Computerworld immediately began retrieving iOS 8 and in the initial stages at least -- with a slow broadband connection, the upgrade was forecast to take more than hour -- the download proceeded. As of 1:30 p.m. ET, there were no reports on Apple's iPhone support discussion forum about download problems.

The biggest issue seemed to be the size of the upgrade -- many reported that it was in excess of 1GB -- and the enormous free-space requirements, which were 5GB and up. For owners of 16GB iPhones, not to mention those with the even punier 8GB iPhone 5C, that could be a major problem.
Apple called iOS 8 "the biggest release since the launch of the App Store." The App Store appeared in 2008 with the second version of what then was dubbed "iPhone OS." Apple rebranded iPhone OS as iOS in 2010.

iOS 8, which will also power the new iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus that Apple introduced last week -- and which go on sale Friday -- is a free upgrade for owners of the iPhone 4S, iPhone 5, iPhone 5C and iPhone 5S; iPad 2, the third- and fourth-generation iPads with Retina screens, the iPad Air, the iPad Mini and the iPad Mini with Retina; and the fifth-generation iPod Touch that debuted in different configurations in October 2012 and May 2013.
Apple introduced iOS 8 at its annual developers conference in June, when CEO Tim Cook and other executives highlighted a slew of changes, notably new developer frameworks called "Healthkit" and "Homekit" for collecting health-related data and managing home automation devices, respectively.

Other changes to iOS 8, which was not visually revamped as that took place in 2013, included opening the operating system to third-party on-screen keyboards; an iOS-OS X continuation feature called "Continuity" that lets users start some tasks on, say, an iPhone and then finish them on a Mac; and a refined Notification Center that will provide in-context, interactive notifications.
Today, Computerworld reviewer Michael deAgonia concluded that iOS 8 was "packed full of really handy features" that people "will be using on daily basis," but warned that the software still contained bugs.

"There are a few rough spots and lingering bugs -- but for the most part, iOS 8 is as responsive and snappy as iOS 7 before it," deAgonia wrote.
At least one of the biggest additions to iOS, Continuity -- especially its sub-component, "Handoff" -- will really only become useful once Apple releases OS X Yosemite for the Mac. Yosemite is expected to ship on Oct. 22.

iOS 8 can be downloaded over the air from iPhones, iPads, iPad Minis and iPod Touches, or through iTunes. From an iPhone, for instance, users must touch the "Settings" icon, then the "General" button on the resulting screen. Tapping "Software Update" will kick off the update process.
For Computerworld's test iPhones, iOS 8 weighed in a near a gigabyte -- 957MB to be specific -- although others reported smaller or larger downloads

iPhone 6 Plus specs versus Samsung Galaxy Note 4, LG G3: 'Phablets' compared

Apple's first attempt at smartphone over 5 inches brings it to battle with the latest and greatest Android phones of about the same size.
 The days of Android fanboys and fangirls mercilessly mocking the 4-inch Apple iPhone screen are over. The 5.5-inch Apple iPhone 6 Plus (and to a lesser extent the 4.7-inch iPhone 6) smash the iPhone screen record, and in doing so, start competing toe-to-toe with today's top big-screen phones.
LG's 5.5-inch G3 and Samsung's freshly-unveiled Galaxy Note 4 (and kooky Note 4 Edge) rise to the top in terms of stature and specs. Here's how Apple's iPhone 6 Plus compares.

Metal versus plastic

Apple's iPhone continues to favor aluminum craftsmanship, while the Note 4 adds a metal frame. The LG G3, meanwhile, sticks with a lighter plastic construction for its phone housing.

Screen resolution

One of the major differences along these phones comes down to the screen resolution. The iPhone 6 Plus has the same 5.5-inch display size as the LG G3, but is the only one of the three to use a 1080p resolution display instead of the more pixel-packed Quad HD resolution of 2,560 x 1,440 pixels.
As a result, the iPhone 6 Plus' pixel density is significantly lower than both the Note 4 and the G3. When we hold the screens side-by-side we expect to see that difference on content that supports ultrarich detail, like 4K videos and photos.


The megapixel war rages on among most handset-makers, pushing up the number of pixels captured to 13 and 16-megapixels. Apple (and separately, HTC) takes a different tack, keeping megapixels steady at 8 for the rear camera and 1.2 for the front.
