While devs can enjoy their beta versions, we can take a few things from here and there to get the latest iOS 8 feel on our devices. Here is how you can get iOS 8 Notification Center for your iOS 7 powered devices.
Get iOS 8 Notification Center:
iOS 8 Notification Center combines both the All and Missed tabs in to one single tab now titled as Notifications. A new edit button at the bottom lets you access your Notification Center settings quickly and the overall blur looks more transparent now with widget and notification titles having a background bar.
