We just downloaded iOS 8 Beta and we’re going through grabbing screenshots of all of the new features. In the gallery above, you’ll be able to see a lot of the new features, some of our favorites, which we’ve included screenshots of in the gallery above, include:
- You can now have your device automatically delete messages after 30 days or 1 year, instead of leaving them permanently on the device.
- You can respond with a voice message.
- The predictive keyboard works pretty well, and looks cool, too.
- You can choose from a gallery of photos to include in an MMS.
- Spotlight now searches Safari, Music, Apps, movie showtimes, the App Store and so much more.
- Health app – lets you track a ridiculous amount of data including body mass index, body fat percentage, height, body mass, lean body mass, distance, calories, activity, flights climbed, steps, basal calories, NikeFuel and More.
- Health app lets you create a medical ID with emergency info about yourself.
- Family Sharing lets you share music, movies, apps, photos and other downloads with other iTunes accounts.
