With the public release of iOS 8 now just two days away, we wanted to let you all know that we have lots of information and resources ready to share with you as soon as Apple makes its new version of iOS available for download.
This will include a number of Blog posts and Guides with information on what you will find in iOS 8, along with podcast demonstrations of some new and changed features.
Some of our Editorial Team have been involved in beta testing of iOS 8, so have been able to compile a list of new accessibility bugs that we expect to see in the final version. As in past years, we would strongly recommend that you read this list so that you can make an informed decision about whether to upgrade to iOS 8 at this time. Past experience would suggest that this will be a particularly hot topic and that the list will grow as people identify additional bugs.
We also plan to host our first ever Twitter Q&A to coincide with the launch of iOS 8. Using the hashtag #AskAppleVis, you will be able to ask your questions about iOS 8. There will be two Twitter chats, one taking place from 12:00 p.m. CDT/5:00 p.m. UTC to 2:00 p.m. CDT / 7:00 p.m. UTC; and another taking place from 7:00 p.m. CDT / 12:00 a.m. UTC to 9:00 p.m. CDT / 2:00 a.m. UTC. To participate in the chat, simply tag your question #AskAppleVis and a member of our editorial team will do their best to answer it.
We're looking forward to iOS 8 finally being available, and hope that the great content we have ready for posting will help you with getting to grips with everything that is new or changed.
It's going to be extremely interesting to hear people's opinions on whether iOS 8 has been worth the hype and wait, so we will be keen to hear everybody's thoughts on this version of iOS.
We look forward to seeing you all on iOS 8 release day.
hi their, I can't wait for release day my self, looking forward to all the information you guys have coming. is david woodbridge involved as well? I enjoy reading his posts and listening to his demos.
Yes. David Woodbridge does a wonderful job as well as all the other applevis team. I am proud to be a part of such a resourceful community. we will be looking forward to IOS8.
Please remember to post Apple's accessibility phone number as we
It might be a good idea to post Apple's accessibility phone number and email (for US and other regions if possible).
In case there are any bugs which people will have an issue with.
My problem is that people end up posting bug reports on this website thinking that they will be resolved when it is essential that they contact Apple directly
Good suggestion, Vash
Actually, it is a great suggestion.

Following this Twitter conversation with the TweetList app for i
I would like to follow this Twitter conversation using the TweetList app on my iPhone, but not sure how to do that. I mainly read and post tweets, so I don't have very much knowledge about hashtags. If someone would tell me how I can follow this discussion I would really appreciate it. Thank you.
Long time lerker, some time commenter here.

Looking forward to IOS 8 info too
Hi! After all the talk of IOS 8 over the last few months, I definitely look forward to finding out more about it, especially from a blind users' point of view: many thanks to everyone on the AppleVis editorial team for preparing guides and podcasts and so on which I gather will be published when IOS 8 is actually released. As I am currently the owner of an iPhone 4S, I am particularly interested to know how the new version of IOS will work on that relatively old phone: however, even if IOS 8 and the iPhone 4S don't turn out the best of friends, and even if 4Ss with IOS 8 turn out to be painfully slow or anything nasty like that, I'll still take an interest in IOS 8's new features, as it's pretty probable that I will have a newer iPhone long before IOS 9 comes out. In the meantime, the more information we can get about IOS 8, the better, so thanks again to AppleVis for providing it when the time is right.
Just want to echo everyone's thanks to the AppleVis team. We're all excitedly awaiting the release tomorrow of the new IOS and like the previous commentor, I too own an iPhone 4S. I do expect to upgrade next month. It's an exciting time, isn't it?
The twitter chats will be interesting
I like the idea of having the twitter chats. This way, people who are holding off on upgrading can get questions answered very quickly.
apple has truly come a long way
apple has truly come along way since the introduction of the mac 30 years ago, and they are totally clear when it comes to accessibility. I'm sure when everyone gets their hands on iOS 8 public release tomorrow, I'm sure a lot of folks will be surprised on the changes. of cource, the resources and podcasts that you will post following the release will help others come to know the changes and features on iOS 8. keep doing what you do!
