iOS 8 includes interactive notifications. Users can now perform additional actions right from the notification itself. For instance, Apple demoed quick reply for text messages. A notification comes is in, and with a tap you can start replying.
Similarly, for calendar events, accept and reject buttons appear right in the notification. This means users don’t have to go into other apps or enter Notification Center to perform simple actions.
