Apple took the stage at the annual WWDC event yesterday and unveiled new devices and a list of upgrades to its existing operating systems including macOS, TVOS, Watch OS, iOS. They also introduced a completely separate OS for the iPad called ‘iPadOS’. Earlier, iOS was a part of both iPhone and iPad . But from here on, iPhones will be the only Apple device running on iOS and iPads will have the iPadOS.
Some of the features that you can see on the new iPadOS:
– Supports faster switching between Apps that runs with the slideover mode on the iPad.
– Easier to pin widgets on the homescreen
– Improvements with Safari to provide ‘desktop-calss browsing’ for its users with over 30 new keyboard shortcuts
– New gestures for cut and paste. If you pull-in using three fingers, you can instantly cut a paragraph and instantly paste it using three-finger drop-in gesture.
iPad is no longer a minnow compared to Mac and iPhones as it becoming powerful every year with better compatibility and accessibility across various Apps. So, it is not a surprise that Apple wants to make the iPad more worthy with the iPad OS.
