Gurman reports, “Over the past few months, I have reported that Apple is working on several different projects for consideration in iOS 8. The list includes a Healthbook application for aggregating various health statistics from App Store apps and third-party medical/fitness devices, an updated Maps app with public transit directions support, a standalone iTunes Radio application to boost usage, VoLTE calling support, TextEdit and Preview apps, and various enhancements across the system. While all of these features have been considered for iOS 8.0 and its launch later this year, sources are now saying that Apple has begun work on iOS 8.1, and that some of the notable features in the works for the first release of iOS 8 could potentially shift back to iOS 8.1.”
“Apple originally planned to introduce a new model of the Apple TV in the first half of 2014, but the product’s debut seems to have been pushed back,” Gurman reports. “Sources now indicate that new Apple TV set-top-box hardware as well a thorough revamp of the Apple TV’s iOS-based software are simultaneously in the works, but are not specifically tied together.”
