User interface experts tell Co.Design how the bigger screens of the iPhone 6 line will impact app design across the industry.
Jed Fisher's insight:

Great summary of what to look out for with iOS8 and the bigger iPhone6 and iPhone6 Plus. 

1. Controls move to the bottom of the screen.

Lovely new useful feature.

2. Gestures replace buttons

Mobile First thinking and minimal UI has always been part of our 4D Pipeline UX mantras, we love using gestures and I'm happy to see more standard gestures coming.

3. Splitscreen Apps proliferate 

Ultimately this is why I've chosen to go iphone6 Plus, i want to test this out and use/develop for it. Incredibly useful.

Major iOS8 feature - screens recognize object touch size - Will Make Drawing on Your Devices Way More Intuitive

Major iOS8 feature - screens recognize object touch size - Will Make Drawing on Your Devices Way More Intuitive | 4D Pipeline - trends & breaking news in Visualization, Virtual Reality, Augmented Reality, 3D, Mobile, and CAD. | Scoop.it
Perfecting your artistic technique using a stylus is about to get a whole lot more refined. With the introduction of iOS 8, your screen will be sensitive to the relative width of whatever's running across its surface. That's great news for folks who prefer Paper and other drawing apps to, well, paper.
Jed Fisher's insight:

A new feature in iOS 8 that slipped under the radar: Screens will now recognize exactly how big the object touching them really is. It's an intuitive step forward for the software, and it gives existing hardware a brand new life.

This is very significant, it goes beyond even drawing, to interaction and gestures. Major!

iOS 8: The Best (almost hidden) Feature for App Developers

iOS 8: The Best (almost hidden) Feature for App Developers | 4D Pipeline - trends & breaking news in Visualization, Virtual Reality, Augmented Reality, 3D, Mobile, and CAD. | Scoop.it
Of all the new features introduced in iOS 8 last week, app extensions are the ones that will have the biggest, most visible impact on the new operating system. The feature is most commonly described as a way for third-party applications to talk to each other, though that's an oversimplification—that's not the only thing app extensions can do, and technically third-party apps in iOS still can't talk directly to one another.
Jed Fisher's insight:

You've got an App or an Idea? Then a very important question to ask yourself is can my App benefit from better iOS integration. This is a huge feature for iOS8 and one which will allow your app to do more and open up better experiences for end users. 

For example, make a custom keyboard, Today extension, share extension, Action translation, or cloud storage provider extension.

With iOS 8, The iPhone Will Become Your Digital Hub

With iOS 8, The iPhone Will Become Your Digital Hub | 4D Pipeline - trends & breaking news in Visualization, Virtual Reality, Augmented Reality, 3D, Mobile, and CAD. | Scoop.it
At Macworld 2001, Steve Jobs famously introduced the "digital hub" strategy for the Mac, making it the device where all of the single-purpose gadgets for..
Jed Fisher's insight:

From startups to Apple/Google/Microsoft, everyone i wanting to own cloud..  Cloud promises to do almost everything but people dont understand Clouds. They do however understand the phone and the concept of it being a digital hub. Behind the scenes it's still a lot of Cloud but the point is - when communicating out focus on the front door, not the backend. Focus on what it does, not how it does it.
