Apple is tipped to launch iOS 8 at the Worldwide Developer Conference (WWDC) scheduled this June though there already is a sneak peek of what’s in store with the next upgrade thanks to a leak from Chinese site Weibo. As revealed in the leaked screenshots, there is going to be at least two new OSX apps – Preview and TextEdit – that will make its debut in the mobile OS. Both of these apps though will offer limited functionality as these are purported to allow users to view files created by the desktop app and stored in iCloud. These are unlikely to offer any editing capabilities.
Another app that has appeared in the leaked screen shot of what is believed to be that of the next iOS iteration is Healthbook. This app is already being touted to emerge as the biggest USP of iOS 8 in the coming days and will give shape to the renewed focus that Apple is expected to assign to health and fitness aspects. Not to mention, the Healthbook app will also provide easy integration with the iWatch with built-in health tracking features that the Californian company is expected to come up with in the coming days.
Popular site dealing with Apple devices, 9to5Mac has confirmed the legitimacy of the leaked screenshots with help from Apple sources.
