iOS 8 Available for Download on Sept. 17

Today Apple announced their new iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 plus, but they didn’t leave other iPhone users hanging. The company said you’ll be able to download iOS 8 on Sept. 7. Don’t expect to get it that day, because Apple’s servers will be over loaded or they’ll end up crashing from the massive amount of people downloading iOS 8.

Every iPhone from the 4s on, every iPad starting with the iPad 2, and the fifth-generation iPod touch. Look for it to make a big impact with iOS 8, as Developers have better access to the API that makes it go. Part of that cohesion comes with extensibility. The new extensibility feature lets apps not only work independently of one another, but also interact with each other in new ways.  Think of the sharing features in Safari — they’re limited, but with extensibility, you can share to many more apps and services.

Tell us in the comments below if you’ll try and download the update on the 17th or wait for developers to update their apps for the new software?
