iOS 8 Implements New Calender App Features
The upcoming iOS 8 and Mac OS X 10.10 Yosemite operating systems by Apple will include a brand new calender app with some visual changes and new features.
The calender app has always been a core element of iPhone functionality, as well as the Mac. People with hectic working schedules also appreciate the event manager. Events can be added and viewed by the day, week, month or year, allowing you to schedule your life with efficiency.
New Calender App Features
3 main new changes are included in the new Calendar app for iOS 8 and OS X Yosemite. Although they are not revolutionary, they do make things more user friendly. This is what you can expected when Apple launches both operating systems this Autumn/Fall.
Auto Complete iOS Calender
With previous calenders you could easily set up events on a recurring basis, but things often become tedious when your schedule is always changing. The new calender has the ability to learn from previous events and take an intelligent guess at auto-completing the fields. This is especially effective when you enter events with the same people or places, but with different times and dates.
This feature will automatically fill in the location, attendees, and other common fields, greatly speeding up the process. As time progresses the calender will learn more about your habits and will become more accurate in its suggestions. While it may not work that great to begin with, eventually it will become extremely useful.
The Mac OS X 10.10 Yosemite variant of the Calender has been given a new more iOS like look, when in Day or Week view. This includes two sections, with the inspector to the right-hand side.
Furthermore the annoying floating window from the preview OS X has been replaced with a bunch more space for inputting the details of the event.
The Today screen – where you get a summary of the calender – has also been given a bit of an upgrade. You can have a quick-view look at what you have scheduled for today and tomorrow, as well as stock prices, weather forecasts, and other reminders.
