First of all AirPlay 2 is now available to users, which should have already been offered with previous versions. With this feature, it will be possible to play music at home synchronously in different devices. So when you go from one room to another with an iOS device, HomePod, Apple TV or Siri, you will be carrying your music with you.


You can also tell Siri to play pop music while you are in the kitchen. In addition, you can easily control the volume level of all devices or play or stop music. AirPlay 2 also means more functionality for the Apple HomePod smartphone. For example, HomePod is getting support for stereo mapping. AirPlay 2-enabled devices are being offered by manufacturers such as Bang & Olufsen, Bose, Denon, Marantz, Marshall, Pioneer and Sonos.

Continue using the Messages app as you normally would. The most significant difference is going to be when it comes to deleting message threads or setting up a new device. Yes, that means no more managing your list of conversations on multiple devices!

Additionally, with Messages stored in your iCloud account, they no longer take up storage on your phone or computer — a useful feature for those always pressed for space.

Useful Facts on iPhone 8 That You Need To Know

Apple will launch its the most radically designed and the most expensive iPhone soon. Yes, we are talking about iPhone 8. According to the latest news on iPhone 8, it has some problems for now as well as many attracting features. Let’s have a look at iPhone 8 in this post!

Apple seems to offer many upgrades

Recently, we heard that Apple is struggling to get wireless charging and quick charging on iPhone 8. This would be a great development, for sure! However, this is not the reason for iPhone 8 being very expensive. Here is why: The move to OLED. 3D Touch sensors work on LTPS TFT-LCD display panels of the iPhone, but 3D Touch solution for OLED panels entails bonding of a glass cover on the front and back side of an OLED panel each to reinforce the fragile OLED panel. OLED adds tens of dollars.

In addition, 3D sensing technology is another upgrade in iPhone 8, which adds $20 along with around  $30 upgraded memory. Combined with the new 3D Touch module, these areas total roughly $100. The design of iPhone 8 has also been radically changed. This means Apple paid relatively higher costs for this design process.

iPhone 8 will not be launched soon

Probably due to many upgrades, the date for launching iPhone 8 will not be earlier than the year of 2018, a year later than expected. We cannot be sure but, all the upgrades and features expected for iPhone 8 might be a reasonable cause for the delay.

Here is a list of the expected upgrades of the new iPhone:
