The signature iPad accessory, Apple Pencil has been updated with the new iPadOS 14. One of the most remarkable feature in iPadOS 14 is Scribble that made a jump from the Apple Watch. This new feature makes writing on iPad easier and flawless once you get the hang of it. You can use the Apple Pencil to write on any text field with Scribble and the hand-written text will be converted to typed text. The feature works in English and Chinese. It can recognize all kinds of handwriting even if it’s messy, and can interpret capitals and proper spacing. However, it might not work well with cursive. The function works throughout the operating system wherever there is text to fill out. Emphasizing on ‘throughout the OS’, the feature works with compose field in iMessage, address bar in Safari, universal search in Home Screen, writing an event in Calendar and more. That’s not all, the feature isn’t going to be limited to just Apple apps as Scribble is already working with third-party apps and developers are working on optimizing it. Read More
