It's just one of the many features rumoured for iOS 8. Apple is also considering simplifying the drop-down Notification Center, implementing inter-app communication, usability changes to the Voice Memos app, and enabling CarPlay over wi-fi connections. Of course, all of these changes are simply rumours until Apple makes an official announcement, so keep that in mind.
Game Center previously received a makeover with the iOS 7 update, removing its green felt theme in Apple's quest to squash skeuomorphism from its software.
We previously reported that iOS 8 would feature a much-needed upgrade to Apple Maps, as well as the inclusion of the new fitness-oriented app Healthbook. We wrote that the last update, iOS 7, was a notable step forward for the platform.
