The day is finally here, folks! After announcing iOS 8 at WWDC last year, Apple has finally launched it publicly. Check out the links after the jump to direct download iOS 8’s final IPSW file for your iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch!
iOS 8 is a huge release. Possibly the hugest iOS release since iOS 4 and 5. Since Apple has picked off most of the low-hanging fruit – cut, copy, paste, multi-tasking, notification center, a reliable, first-party messaging system, a design overhaul – they have now focused on polishing all the rough corners, and adding little but important features all over the place for a remarkably improved experience.
You can read the full list of features over at the official website. There is simply too much to cover within the scope of this article.
You can directly download the latest official iOS 8 IPSW for your devices. There is one big benefit to this: you can download multiple IPSW files using a download manager / accelerator, so you can easily pause / resume without risk of ruining the download.
As you likely know, iOS 8 works on iPhone 6, 5s, 5, 4s, iPod touch (5th generation), iPad 2, 3, 4, iPad Air, iPad mini, and iPad mini with Retina Display. Be sure to use the correct link for your device below:
