Apple’s biggest announcement today was, without a doubt, iOS 8′s new openness. As the company’s press release says, it’s their biggest developer release ever, with more than 4000 new application programming interface calls.

“iOS 8 allows developers to further customise the user experience with major extensibility features like Notification Center widgets and third-party keyboards; and introduces robust frameworks such as HealthKit and HomeKit,” Apple writes.

“Developers can now add their own widgets into Notification Center,” which might then be viewed or even dismissed on the lock screen. And with HomeKit, for example, “you can tell Siri you are ‘going to bed’ and it could dim the lights, lock your doors, close the garage door and set the thermostat.”

This will certainly open up new opportunities for app developers, especially for developers working on the Internet of Things.
