It is great news that iOS 8 will be available for users tomorrow, Wednesday, Sept. 17, 2014. There are a lot of new features to make the new update bigger than bigger. No matter you are an iOS 6 user or iOS 7 user, when you make your decision to update to iOS 8, you can follow the tips in the following video made by Jefferson Graham, USA TODAY. The steps are as simple as one ,two, three.

  • Just backup all your stuff in iTunes or with iFonebox by connecting to the computer;
  • Enable wifi on the iDevice, go to General >> Software Update tomorrow. The new update will be available then.
  • Download and install the update. And enjoy the new iOS 8. It will take less than a hour to download and install the new update according to the experience of updating to iOS 7 last year.

What iDevice is iOS 8 compatible with?

What to expect when updating iOS 8?

It’s very easy to update to iOS 8. But you need to have enough space according to CNet Bridget Carey. You must have at lease 3 GB free space for the download and install, although iOS 8 doesn’t eat up all the storage space finally. According to the experience of updating to iOS 7, it may take up 700MB or so.  Want to know about what to expect when updating iOS 8? Here you can refer to Bridget Carey’s video.

According to the video, to release more storage space to download and install iOS 8, you can uninstall apps, and clean photos and videos. Media files like photos, videos, and audios always take up a lot of space. So the most efficient way is to backup those files elsewhere, and delete them on the device to free the space.

If you have the older products like iPhone 4S and iPad 2, you may want to avoid upgrading. Last year, some iPhone 4 users reported performance issues when they jumped up to iOS 7.

What’s new in iOS 8?

The new iOS 8 comes with a lot of new exciting features according to Apple.

  • Quickly find and edit the photos you take.
  • Add your voice right in a text message.
  • Let your health and fitness apps communicate with each other, with your trainer, and even with your doctor.
  • Apple also provided developers with deeper access and more tools.
  • You’ll have new keyboard options and even more ways to share your content.
  • And you’ll be able to use iCloud and Touch ID in ways you never have before.

Besides the above, there are many more thoughtful features like double click the home button to find not only the used apps, but also the contacts you’ve spoken to recently with their faces icons across at the top of the screen.  You could tap on their faces to quickly call or message them.  With the new iOS 8, you can easily message your location to your friends now.  With the new Siri, you can even open apps like Twitter. Regarding the iPhone NFC sensor, it is said that it will be available next month only for Apple Pay on iPhone 6 modules. Other apps can’t use the sensor to make programs to do other things.

At last, here are some tips about updating to iOS 8.

  • iOS 8 is not for all iDevice users, if you are using an older iDevice like iPhone 4S or iPad2, it’s highly recommended to keep your current iOS in case there may be some performance issues.
  • For other users with iOS 8 compatible devices, it’s a nice choice to backup all your info before the update.
  • To download and install iOS 8, you may need at lease 3 GB free space on the device although it will not take up that much after the installation. You can uninstall and delete useless apps and media files to free space for the updating.

 

 

 

Part 1. How to use Home Sharing on your iPad and iPhone.

Before iOS 4.3, Home Sharing was only for PCs, but now you can share any computer’s iTunes library with your iPad, iPhone, or iPod Touch over your Wi-Fi network. This allows you to access more music, movies, or podcasts from multiple computers without burdening your device’s storage. Once you set up your Home Sharing account on your computers and devices, sharing is easy. Here’s how to do it:

Part 2. Enable Home Sharing on your Computer.

1. Open iTunes on your computer.  Note that you’ll need iTunes 10.2 or later to set up home sharing.

2. Choose Advanced > Turn On Home Sharing.

3. Enter your Apple ID and password that you use for the iTunes Store, then click Create Home Share.

Part 3. Set up Home Sharing on iPad/iPhone.

1. On your iPad, tap Settings > iPod.

2. In the Home Sharing section, enter the same Apple ID and password you entered on your Mac and tap the return button.

To listen to shared music on your iPad/iPhone, tap on iPod > Library and select a shared library.

To watch shared videos on your iPad, tap on Videos > Shared and select a shared library.

Part 4. Be aware of two restrictions to iTunes sharing.

1. You can only listen to shared iTunes libraries on your network (on your wireless network, in your house, in your office, etc.). This is great for larger offices or dorms. If you’d like to watch movies on iPad when traveling on board, it’s better to sync local movies to iPad.

2. You cannot listen to iTunes Store-purchased songs from another computer unless your computer has been authorized to play that content. But there is third-party application for you to bypass the authorization.

Siri has been the hot topic once again after it released with iPhone 4S. When she’s not answering your questions on iPhone 4S, Siri is running on iPad and iPhone 4. Not one to play favorites, Siri’s now lending her considerable talents to an iPod touch.

Euwars and Rud0lf77, Two enterprising young hackers, are the ones who put Siri on the iPod touch. Of course, Apple’s servers still aren’t as friendly as the virtual voice assistant, so Siri’s latest cameo remains a silent one — but some Siri’s better than none, right?

I think that Apple will roll Siri out to the iPad and iPod in due time. They have to get the service optimized and they have to get their servers ready for the millions of questions that will filter through each day. It can and will run Siri on iPad and iPod touch or other iDevices in due time.

The market for iPods and iPads is not the same as that of the iPhone. Apple rolled this service out on the device that makes the most sense. The iPhone, it’s always connected to the servers without a need for WiFi and it’s one of their more popular products. Siri will come to the other iDevices, and possibly to the iPhone 4, in due time. Give Apple a break and let them work their magic and we will see Siri become more than just a feature on iphone 4S.
