Apple just released iOS 7.1 to the public on Monday but now it’s time to move on. We first saw details surrounding Apple’s upcoming iOS 8 update begin to trickle out last month, including the uncovering of a new Healthbook app that will see Apple’s mobile platform join the recent rush of fitness-related apps and features that are pouring into smartphones. Now, 9to5Mac is back with a report covering more new features set to arrive in Apple’s iOS 8 update later this year.
9to5Mac has a nearly flawless track record when it comes to reporting on Apple’s unannounced plans, and the blog on Tuesday revealed a number of new features and updates set to debut in iOS 8. According to the report, Apple’s new mobile software will focus heavily on improving the iOS Maps experience.
While Apple’s Maps app hasn’t been covered as widely recently, it still lags Google Maps in terms of accuracy and reliability.
