The iOS 8 Features That Apple Didn't Talk About

As expected, Apple didn’t unveil any new hardware at Monday’s WWDC 2014 event, but instead chose to focus on the software side of things. Among the things talked about was the upcoming OS X 10.10 Yosemite for Macs and iOS 8 for Apple mobile products.

The iOS 8 beta is available now for those with developer accounts. It’s a beta, so expect a buggy experience, but you may think that’s a small price to pay to poke around in the mobile OS that is scheduled to go live this fall.

Apple talked about plenty of iOS 8’s new features at the keynote, but what are really interesting are the features that they didn’t talk about. Like In-N-Out Burger’s secret menu, the new OS is loaded with hidden stuff. PCMag compiled a list of 32 features that Apple didn’t get to talking about at the event.

Some are bigger than others. Among the biggest is the addition of Wi-Fi calling, which will let you make phone calls over Wi-Fi in areas where you can’t get a cell signal. They’ve also added DuckDuckGo to Safari in an apparent attempt to lead people away from Google for their search needs.

There are multiple app, camera, accessibility, and Siri enhancements, all of which add up to a pretty substantial update. Be sure to head on over to PCMag to check them out.
