With the public release of iOS 8 now just two days away, we wanted to let you all know that we have lots of information and resources ready to share with you as soon as Apple makes its new version of iOS available for download.
This will include a number of Blog posts and Guides with information on what you will find in iOS 8, along with podcast demonstrations of some new and changed features.
Some of our Editorial Team have been involved in beta testing of iOS 8, so have been able to compile a list of new accessibility bugs that we expect to see in the final version. As in past years, we would strongly recommend that you read this list so that you can make an informed decision about whether to upgrade to iOS 8 at this time. Past experience would suggest that this will be a particularly hot topic and that the list will grow as people identify additional bugs.
We also plan to host our first ever Twitter Q&A to coincide with the launch of iOS 8. Using the hashtag #AskAppleVis, you will be able to ask your questions about iOS 8. There will be two Twitter chats, one taking place from 12:00 p.m. CDT/5:00 p.m. UTC to 2:00 p.m. CDT / 7:00 p.m. UTC; and another taking place from 7:00 p.m. CDT / 12:00 a.m. UTC to 9:00 p.m. CDT / 2:00 a.m. UTC. To participate in the chat, simply tag your question #AskAppleVis and a member of our editorial team will do their best to answer it.
We're looking forward to iOS 8 finally being available, and hope that the great content we have ready for posting will help you with getting to grips with everything that is new or changed.
It's going to be extremely interesting to hear people's opinions on whether iOS 8 has been worth the hype and wait, so we will be keen to hear everybody's thoughts on this version of iOS.
We look forward to seeing you all on iOS 8 release day.
