On the surface, Apple's new mobile operating system iOS 8 looks strikingly similar to iOS 7, but beneath the surface, it's brimming with new features to vastly improve the mobile experience (iOS 8 is hardly perfect, though; as with any new software, there are certainly kinks).
Here's a look at our favorite features of iOS 8.15. Time-lapse/Slow-Mo

Step away from the microwave, iPhone owners.
While the newly released iOS 8 boasts several impressive features, including app extensions and improved keyboard options, the software upgrade does not — we repeat, does not — let it be wirelessly recharged in the microwave, contrary to a 4chan hoax.

For a company whose CEO once claimed any smartphone over 4 inches is too big, Apple is quite proud about the size of its new iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus. Case in point: the latest two ads for the new iPhones, narrated by Jimmy Fallon and Justin Timberlake.
"This is the new iPhone 6, and this is the new iPhone 6 Plus. They're the biggest iPhones ever made," the famous duo proclaim in one of the ads. Throughout the ad, Fallon lists some of the device's features, while Timberlake simply repeats the word "huge."
The ad echoes the first iPhone ad, launched at the Sept. 9 event, that also starred Fallon and Timberlake — well, their voices, at least. The two sing the theme from 2001: A Space Odyssey over footage of the new iPhones. The ad ends with Apple's new tagline: "Bigger than bigger."
