3. See every attachment from every conversation

The new "details" section of Messages is pretty amazing. It can help you go through all attachment from all conversations on a single screen. Besides, photos and videos that you have send or received are included. If you want to get more space, the “detail” also makes it conveniently. You can delete an attachment by holding on it. Additionally, if you delete the wrong messages, you can retrieve deleted text messages on iPhone with iPhone Data Recovery.


4. The more powerful Spotlight

Maybe you have never notice Spotlight. But once you start to use it, you will be fond of it at once. Sliding from top to bottom in the main screen in your iDevice, Spotlight will appear. Spotlight becomes more powerful in iOS 8.  It'll display Wikipedia snippets, suggested websites, content from iTunes and the App Store, local movie times, and more based on your search queries. Besides, it can search information automatically and provide you instant messages by digging your message history, email, and reminders.

6. “Hey,Siri”

As long as your iOS device is powered on, you can launch Siri by saying “Hey,Siri”. You can go to Siri's settings to turn this feature on. It may be a little power wasted iOS is constantly listening for the right phrase, but we cannot deny that it provides a lot of conveniences for those who are driving cars.
