In its WWDC 2014 keynote, Apple showed of an incredible array of major new features coming soon iOS devices and the Mac. It also released preview sites for iOS 8 and OS X Yosemite, revealing a surprising number of other upcoming features that weren’t shown on stage.
For example, the Family Sharing features Apple mentioned on stage go far beyond sharing iTunes and App Store purchases. Family Sharing can also create group photo albums, calendars, location sharing among family members, and more.

The OS X site also reveals that Messages for Mac can send and receive SMS, just like iMessages, as long as you have an iPhone and pair your devices.

Check out those two sites if you’re interested in more of the juicy nuggets that Apple didn’t mention on stage.
