Jeff Richardson: The iPhone and iPad are amazing tools for lawyers because they are relatively easy to use, but are also incredibly powerful. But as lawyers (and others) start to master the basics of iOS, they often start to want more powerful features. Every year, Apple adds more advanced features to iOS, and now it is hard to imagine that there was a time when we didn’t have third party apps, copy and paste, or even Siri. But based on the announcements made by Apple yesterday, when iOS 8 comes out this Fall, Apple will make huge advancements to the operating system, with lots of advanced features for power users and lots of ways to make iPhones and iPads more powerful for everyone. Apple announced a huge number of new features yesterday and I won’t even try to mention all of them today — not only because there are so many of them, but also because many of the features have so much potential that it is going to take a while for their importance to really sink in. Moreover, Apple only gave us a taste of the highlights of iOS 8, and I’m sure that when it is actually released in a few months there will be even more surprises. For all of those reasons, today’s post provides only a few of the reasons that I am confident that lawyers are going to love iOS 8.
