By now you’ve likely heard about the upcoming change to your Apple device.  The release of iOS 8 is expected this fall.  This won’t be a complete overhaul like iOS 7 but there are some changes that many Apple Users will get excited about.

Expect several upgrades to the current messaging system that iOS 7 currently uses:

  • Audio/Video Messaging – iOS 8 will possess a new feature that allows users to send short video and/or audio messages via the texting app.  These messages will automatically disappear after a period of time, freeing up the space they would otherwise occupy.
  • Group Messaging – Have you ever been included on a Group Text and wish you could be removed to keep from getting bombarded with dozens of messages?  With iOS 8 you can do just that!  You will now have the ability to “mute” a group text until you are ready to jump back in the conversation.
  • Organization – Do you send and/or receive pictures/videos often?  If so, you’ll be glad to know that you will no longer have to scroll through long threads to find the picture that was sent to you last week.  Apple has created an area where all pictures of videos will be store for easy accessing at a later date.
