iOS 8 Concept Gives Excellent Ideas for iPhone 6 Features

The new and rare iOS 8 concept provided some excellent ideas on what we could see on the upcoming iPhone 6.
Phones Review reported that Dribbble designer Bill Labus has come up with a brilliant concept image of the next generation of Apple's operating system. One of the main assets of Labus' render is an improved notification and multitasking system. His concept comes with a feature he calls Mission Control, which improves on the multitasking features on iOS 7. Currently, users need to double click the home button to access the apps and features opened. However, some consumers find it "irritating".
According to Labus, Mission Control merges Control Center and multitasking into one convenient notifications centre that allows users to use the bottom of the device to open the feature. This will also allow users to view notifications and manage shortcuts to apps like to remove seldom-used apps and add frequently-used apps.
This should be taken with a pinch of salt since this concept may or may not come into fruition. Currently, it was found out that Apple has a security hole in its both mobile and desktop operating systems that a malicious hacker can breach, especially if you are doing an important web transaction. Thus, users must take necessary precaution when using public Wi-Fi network like those at a coffee shop, airport or some other location.
The security hole involves the SSL/TLS, or Secure Socket Layer and Transport Layer Security, which encrypt the conversation between your browser and the server the user is trying to access when visiting a website. SSL and TLS are represented by an "https" rather than "http" in your browser's URL bar.
Meanwhile, iPhone 6 was speculated to be released in June at the Worldwide Developers' Conference alongside iOS 8. Meanwhile, other reports claimed that the handset will arrive in September, a years after the iPhone 5S and 5C were released.
Just like last year, two iPhone 6 are coming this year. Both variants will come with bigger screen display, according to the report of Taiwanese media Economic Daily News. One of the new iPhone models was speculated to be Apple's take on the phablet category with with 5.6-inch screen panel.
Meanwhile, A8 processor, iOS 8 and fingerprint sensor were some of the features that will most likely arrive in the next iPhone. Some Apple patents such as curved or flexible screen embedded with liquidmetal material, sapphire glass screen display, improved Siri, and gestures control may come to the next Apple handset.
