So, you just downloaded iOS 8. Looks pretty familiar, right? Certainly, last year’s switch from iOS 6 to iOS 7 – which saw Apple ditch the iPhone’s tired, six-year-old interface and move to something more spare and clean – was a far bigger leap visually than this update to iOS 8.
In fact, most of the apps in iOS 8 look almost identical to what you were using just days ago. And a few of them appear entirely unchanged.
