The report states that the new Maps app will feature enhanced data, making it more reliable, as well as a cleaner design for the user interface, highlighting landmarks like airports and hotels. Unnamed sources also claim that public transit directions will finally arrive with the overhauled Maps app, starting in major cities and expanding to other locales over time. Apple users will be able to get subway and bus data with some taps of their finger.
Along with the upgraded Maps app, Apple is reportedly working on a health and fitness platform for iOS 8, including the fabled iWatch. Called Healthbook, the new feature supposedly monitors a user's vital signs and sends health notifications.
