Presumably, next year Apple plans to introduce the next version of the mobile OS - iOS 8. The next assembly of the mobile platform should not bring any revolutionary, cardinal changes. It is planned as a logical continuation of the development of iOS 7.
One of the innovations planned in iOS 8 may be interactive notifications. Recall that for the first time notifications appeared in iOS 5, in the form of banners that appear when receiving incoming messages or other events. Of course, notifications in iOS are very convenient: they do not distract the user from communicating with the gadget, they are minimalistic, they convey, in a compressed form, only the essence of the event. However, until now, after 2 generations of operating system development, they only notify the user and do not give him the opportunity to interact in any way with the applications that send them.
Designer Sam Beckett suggested making notifications more interactive. Beckett designed his idea in the form of a concept called Interactive Notifications for iOS 8 ”And demonstrated in a short video. Based on what is shown in this concept video, notifications in iOS 8 may receive a Reply button. Thus, upon receipt of an incoming message, the user will be able to answer it without being distracted from the current activity by pressing one button.
When you click on the "Reply" button, a screen opens in front of the user, containing: the text of the incoming message, the response input field and the keyboard. After viewing or responding to an incoming message, this screen closes and the system returns the user to the previously opened application. Now such functionality can be obtained only after applying a jailbreak to the device and then installing BiteSMS. This application allows you to reply to incoming messages without interrupting your previous activity. The implementation of this concept in the new version of iOS will certainly be a long-awaited event for millions of users.

What we have been waiting for and what has finally happened - Apple has implemented interactive notifications in iOS 8 . In fact, we got a quick response or quick action option for apps in the Notification Center. Less than a day has passed since the release of the beta version of iOS 8, but we already have a video that demonstrates the capabilities of the updated system element
The famous TypeStatus tweak has been slightly revised and got an index 2 in the title. It is currently in public beta testing and is available for download to everyone.TypeStatus 2 still allows you to find out whether the subscriber has read the message you sent and whether he is typing back to you
Traditionally, Apple presents a new version of its mobile operating system at the annual WWDC International Developers Conference, and if nothing changes, on June 13 we will see the next operating system for the iPhone and iPad - the anniversary iOS 10
Extensions that allow you to adapt the iOS 7 interface in the style of iOS 8 are gaining more and more popularity. At the moment, it is already possible to transfer the Action Center and the menu with contacts in the multitasking panel. The recently released Interactive Message Notification tweak is designed to add interactive notifications from the G8
There is very little time left before the release of iOS 8 - the next generation of the mobile operating system will most likely be presented at the WWDC 2014 conference, which starts next Monday. One of the most important innovations in iOS 8 is considered by many reviewers to be the Healthbook app, which, among other things, will be responsible for interacting with the iWatch smartwatch
