The iOS 8 was unveiled during an Apple Press Conference early September this year and came out in tandem with the new iPhone 6. While expectations for the iOS 8 aren't as extravagant as the iPhone 6's, people still hoped that the new version of the operating system wouldn't just be a visual update like the iOS 7.
It wasn't fortunately and alongside an iOS 7 interface redesign, the iOS 8 came with new features as well as upgrades of already existing ones. First and foremost, the update is free and can be installed on any Apple device newer than the iPhone 4.
Essentially, the iOS 8 is available for the iPhone 4S and later, the iPad 2 and above, the iPad Mini and iPad Mini 2, and the iPod Touch 5th Generation. more >>
Google's next mobile operating system, Android L, is expected to be released sometime this October. Recently though, it looks like Google has released a 64-bit Android L developer preview emulator image. Strangely, the emulator is a 64-bit image for 64-bit Intel chips and not ARMv8. It's strange since developers have no tools to create 64-bit ARMv8 apps despite Nvidia's upcoming 64-bit Tegra K1.
The release of the developer preview, however, only means that the actual operating system might just be around the corner. Apparently, Google is planning a launch event this Oct. 15 for the announcements of the Android L, the Nexus 9 tablet, Android Wear 2.0, and Android TV.
Android L – or Android 5.0 – was first first unveiled during Google's I/O Conference June earlier this year. During that time, Google's Sundar Pichai said that Android L would be supporting 64-bit CPU architectures. more >>

While the roster of included characters is still most likely to be added up till the game's release, 2K Sports will also likely to offer multiple downloadable content packs when the game is released.
Only recently, however, 2K Sports is apparently going to offer a season pass which will save buyers from having to buy the DLCs individually. Gamestop has a listing for the season pass but with 2K Sports not giving out an official announcement, the DLC is supposedly not meant to be revealed yet.
