iOS 8 Extensions open the door for iPhone and iPad apps to share data and features, and that creates new potential for Apple's own Photos app and image editing. Third party image editing apps can now share their filters with the Photos app, but you need to know how to enable them first — which is fairly easy to do.
The search feature has been revamped under iOS 8, and we really like the changes! In this comprehensive Quick Tip, we'll discuss how to invoke Spotlight to find items on your device, what stuff you can now search for, and how to turn off the new "Spotlight Suggestions" if you don't like them.
Handoff was a promised feature of iOS 8. Now that it's been released, Kelly shows how Handoff can make mobile workflows even more efficient.
Apple's Family Sharing in iOS 8 is something many users are eager to setup in order to finally deal with the issue of sharing purchased apps (and music and movies and more) with family members. Frustration has set in for some, however, when the setup process informs users that PayPal is not a valid payment option for family purchases. The good news is that you can set PayPal as an option after Family Sharing is setup, at least for now.
iOS 8 introduces Family Sharing, a feature that allows multiple members of the same family to share app purchases with one another using iCloud accounts. It's not entirely obvious how to link a separate purchases account to Family Sharing, but it is possible, and we'll show you how to do it.

As much as I love Google's ability to find exactly what I want, I've grown concerned about the amount of data they collect from my searches. You've probably experienced that lovely phenomenon of casually searching for a product and then seeing ads for that same product all over the 'net. Luckily for those concerned about such things, there's DuckDuckGo, a search engine that makes privacy its number one concern. Even more luckily, Apple's added it to iOS 8's list of search providers.
In iOS 7, Apple's native weather app had rather sparse information about the local conditions, and it was hard to find. iOS 8 fixes all that and includes a better presentation of sunrise, sunset, atmospheric pressure and more.
