Some unknown features of the iOS 8
 
 

These features only got a few seconds of precious keynote time and hence have not surfaced on the top

Apple always has something interesting in store for the users with every new OS update and the iOS 8 is going to be no different. It has been equipped with multiple interactive features which will surely enhance the customers’ experience. Though we have had our share of the new major features on the iOS 8 there are still plenty of them left behind because presentations can only give a limited amount of time and there is only so much that one can speak.

Here is a list of all the hidden iOS 8 features which were not highlighted during the keynote speeches.

WiFi calling

This feature has already been existing on some Android and Windows Phone devices and is being touted by T-Mobile but now it is coming to Apple. This is a service which is going to allow the users to make phone calls based on Wi-Fi connections. This is useful in situations where you are out of a good range of network coverage but still have a Wi-Fi connection.

Find out battery usage by app

iPhone users will all be too well aware of the frequent battery drainage. The reasons are the apps opened up in the background which you are not even aware of or sometimes you just leave open a few features without knowing how much battery they can consume while running. The new app will help you figure out which apps are utilizing significant portions of your storage space.

DuckDuckGo

This will be the default search option listed on the iOS 8 in Safari alongside Google, Bing and Yahoo. Those who prefer keeping intact their privacy are going to love the concept of this app. This search option will let you browse and search without tracking your searches.

New camera apps

With the iOS 8, the camera app is going to feature Separate focus and exposure controls, as well as instant burst mode and a camera timer. Apple’s camera setups have always remained very plain and even boring for some. These new additions have certainly lifted up the spirit of the Apple camera.

Panoramic mode (for iPads)

 

Some people were disappointed that this feature was missing from the iOS 7. Perhaps Apple didn’t pay much attention to the fact that people do use their tablets to take pictures but it has decided to put it right by adding in the ability to take panoramic shots.

FaceTime call waiting

This is particularly beneficial for those users who frequently make use of FaceTime app. now if you are using FaceTime, you will be notified if someone else also wants to FaceTime you at the same time.
