How to download iOS 8

LOS ANGELES — How would you like to get many of the cool new features of the new iPhone without having to wait on those expected massive lines Friday to snag that new i-device? That would be possible by downloading iOS 8, the new mobile operating system upgrade from Apple, which will be released Wednesday. Apple hasn’t said what time the download will be available, but historically it starts kicking in early in the morning. Apple pre-dates the release of the new iPhones — which hit stores Friday — with an operating system upgrade. New features will include the ability to create audio text messages, make use of predictive typing on the keyboard and use the Siri personal assistant to do more than just do tasks. Now it will also work within apps.

Though I am now a “Phablet” loyalist (Galaxy Note series), I was an iPhone junkie for a long time. So here’s to saving some money and energy. Great tip. 😉
