Top 5 Infographics of the Week: iOS 8

Apple's iOS 8 was just released mid-last week, with the iPhone 6 following a few days after. iOS 8 boasts a ton of new features, including an improved spotlight search, new notification center, and more options for the camera and photo editing. But before you go reaching for your phones to get the update, consider that it will take up to about 2 GB on your phone (and even more if done over wifi). If you have an older iPhone model, your phone could get buggy and drastically slower, forcing you to buy the new phone. This presents tremendous opportunities for developers, but it also means a lot of work for them updating applications for the new interface. We've rounded up 5 of the best infographics on iOS 8 and the iPhone 6 and presented them for you here to enjoy, so take a look!
