iOS 8 keeps the family in mind

Apple

When Apple released iOS 8 at the Worldwide Developers Conference on June 2, it certainly had the family in mind.

A new feature called Family Sharing is a new way to sync data like music and movies from iTunes, photos, calendars and more with up to six family members and the various Apple gadgets they might have.

Did your son get a movie on iTunes? Dad can watch it during his commute to work.

Did your daughter take some amazing photos from the camping trip last week? She can easily add them to the family photo album.

Does one of the kids want to make an in-app purchase for an addictive gaming app? Family Sharing will ask mom or dad for permission.

When and where is soccer practice? Use the combined calendars to find out. You can also use the Family Sharing feature the way you use Find my iPhone to locate any of your family members at any given time.

See what other new features Apple included in iOS 8.
