Leaked iOS 8 pic suggests new apps: report

PanARMENIAN.Net - iOS 8, the next version of Apple's mobile software for the iPhone and iPad, is expected to arrive in June with new features that have a strong focus on fitness. Now, an alleged leaked photo of iOS 8 reveals what other types of apps we'll see added to the update, Mashable reported.

According to a picture shared on Chinese social network Weibo, Apple will be adding iOS versions of some of its existing OS X apps for Macs, including Preview and TextEdit. These tools will reportedly help users view files stored in iCloud, according to 9to5Mac.

Also visible in the picture is the long-rumored Healthbook app, which will monitor fitness stats (from steps taken and calories burned) and keep track of blood pressure, heart rate and glucose levels. Rumors have also swirled that the next-generation iPhone hardware could include more sensors that will work with the iPhone's M7 motion coprocessor.

Apple is also said to be working on a major maps overhaul for iOS by adding public transit directions and making key points of interest — such as airports, highways and so on — easier to find.
