New Details On iOS 8 and OS X 10.10 Revealed

9to5 mac is reporting that they have new information on Apple upcoming software updates for their iDevices and Macs.

According to the report, the killer feature in iOS 8 (Codenamed: Okemo) will be the Healthbook app. 


“The most significant new application that Apple is currently planning to add in iOS 8 is codenamed Healthbook,” Mark Gurman writes for 9to5 mac. “Healthbook is an application that aggregates health and fitness data from various applications and hardware accessories. The application is akin to Passbook in terms of user-interface design, and users will be able to customize their Healthbook to give visual priority to health statistics that are most important to them. Healthbook is capable of tracking data for various bloodwork details, heart rate, blood pressure, nutrition, blood sugar, sleep, respiratory rate, oxygen saturation, weight, and activity.”

Additionally, Apple is expected to unveil a significantly redesigned Mac operating system – OS X 10.10  (Codenamed: Syrah)

According to Gurman:

“OS X 10.10 will be the successor to the current OS X, 10.9 Mavericks. Mavericks focused on power-user features and under-the-hood enhancements to improve hardware performance, battery life, and graphics processing. 10.10, however, will focus on aesthetics. According to sources, Apple Senior VP of Design Jony Ive is leading a “significant” design overhaul for OS X, and the new design will be the operating system’s cornerstone new feature.

The new design will not be as stark as iOS 7, but it will include many of the flat elements and white textures instead of re-creations of life-like elements. The end-to-end redesign is said to be a top priority at Apple right now, with the specific details about the changes being sworn to extreme secrecy. Apple has been testing new features such as Siri and support for iOS AirDrop compatibility, but it’s unconfirmed if those enhancements will be ready for 10.10. We’ll have more on what to expect from OS X 10.10 soon, so stay tuned.”

Apple Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) 2014 is set to take place June 2-6 in San Francisco. Apple promises to provide “an in-depth look at the latest in iOS and OS X” to developers at the event.
