There was one announcement from today's WWDC event you might've missed. It's a small release with huge potential: a new set of tools for developers shipping with iOS 8. There's over 4,000 new possibilities (or "APIs," in engineering lingo) for future iOS apps, including crazy keyboard alternatives and using Touch ID to log in to third-party applications.
This small, very technical announcement means that we, as normal everyday users, will have way more options and control with how we use our phones. Apple is finally loosening its grip on integrating non-Apple third-party apps into the existing Safari, Maps, and Photos apps we love and use every day.
