iOS 8 was released yesterday, along with some nifty new features.

Some of them, such as QuickType, are already getting a lot of attention, but this article on Lifehacker rounds up 50 (yes, 50) of the "smaller yet significant" updates on the new software.

Scroll though to find out about improvements to predictive text, battery life, and the camera function.

If you haven't yet updated your software to iOS 8, make sure you back up your iPhone or iPad before you do so, to avoid potentially losing any of the content already on your device.
