    This special episode takes you through some of the decision points of deciding to upgrade to iOS 8, and walks you through the upgrade process.

    I'll be covering iOS 8 extensively over the next month or so, as well as looking at iOS 8 impacts and influences the top third party apps.

    There will be lots of short snappy looks at iOS 8 functionality all over the internet, but that's not how we roll here at ScreenCastsOnline. There will be no knee jerk reaction or rush to flood you with superficial or lightweight views of such an important topic. Each future episode will look in depth at the various aspects of iOS 8 and ultimately how it will impact with OS X Yosemite.

    That being said, I couldn't resist giving you a little teaser at some of the new features of iOS 8 in this special launch episode.

    Just to reinforce one of the messages in the episode, if you currently use iCloud for document storage or iCloud syncing between your iOS devices and your Mac, DO NOT OPT TO UPGRADE TO ICLOUD DRIVE! Your documents will be inaccessible from your Mac and iCloud syncing will break, at least until OS X Yosemite is out!

    • Backup Your Device
    • OTA Upgrade
