iOS 8 additions promise to streamline how you communicate and share

Anthony Domanico | June 3, 2014
Due out this fall, Apple's latest mobile device promises a lot of new features and enhancements. Here are the ones that caught our eye.

Photos With iOS 8, photos will be integrated with iCloud so that every photo you take will be available on all your iOS and OS X devices. To help you sort through all the photos in iCloud, you can search by location, time, and albums you've set up. And there are smart editing controls that help you quickly edit and crop photos from your device.

Siri. Siri also gets some enhancements in iOS 8. Saying "Hey, Siri" will now let you interact with Siri in your car so you don't have to touch your phone while driving. (OK Google, that feature may sound pretty familiar to you.) Siri will also add Shazam integration to help identify the song that's currently playing on the radio; you can buy that song using voice commands from Siri. Apple's digital assistant also gains streaming voice recognition and 22 new dictation languages in iOS 8.
