iOS 8 review: Some overdue updates, but well worth the wait

iOS 8 feels a bit like Apple playing catch-up; the update includes many features that Android users have been enjoying for years. Nonetheless, the upgrade goes a long way in giving the iPhone and iPad a better user experience.

Pros
  • Apps can now interact with other apps
  • Support for third-party keyboards
  • Manual camera controls
  • Continuity lets you easily move between devices
  • Family Sharing
  • Actionable notifications
Cons
  • "Hey Siri" command only works when phone is plugged in
  • iCloud Drive files should be easier to access
  • Developers still can't touch Control Center
  • Few improvements to Apple Maps
