At Worldwide Developers Conference 2014 Apple is expected to unveil iOS 8. While we have already heard a lot about what to expect from the upcoming major software update we still haven’t seen official images, and we won’t until WWDC 2014. However a sketchy image has appeared online showing off what is claimed to be an iOS 8 beta build running on iPhone 5S. Even if it corroborates with some of the rumors we have heard about iOS 8, it is highly likely that this photo might be fake.
Rumor has it that iOS 8 will come with a Healthbook app as well as a standalone iTunes Radio app, both are seen in the picture. Even an app titled “Watch Utility” can be seen. Since Apple is expected to introduce the iWatch later this year, the app can only serve one purpose, but it certainly won’t be there in iOS 8 if Apple has no plans of launching a wearable device anytime soon.
Apart from the apps it doesn’t seem like any major user interface changes will be made to iOS 8, provided that this imagine really does offer a glimpse of what the new software looks like. Staging this photo is as easy as opening up a fake in camera roll and then taking a picture, so as previously cautioned, take this with a grain of salt.
