With the advent of iPadOS 14, Apple has taken the iPad Pro lineup one step closer to being an actual computer replacement. For the new iPad OS 14, Apple has completely redesigned its application size and layout in order to utilize the display of the iPad to its full potential. So here’s everything you need to know about iPad0S 14.
1. Redesigned Apps And Interface
Since its advent, the operating system powering the iPad has always been considered as a blown-up version of iOS. That said, in recent years Apple has started focusing on the iPad as an individual computing device rather than considering it as an iPhone accessory.
With iPadOS 14, Apple has completely redesigned the apps and the overall user interface. Some of the major design changes in iPadOS 14 are compact design for incoming FaceTime and phone calls, Siri interactions, and Search. Additionally, many applications like Apple Music, Photos, Files, Notes, and Calendar have new sidebars and toolbars which come in handy while working.
Using the new search features you can locate and launch apps, access contacts, files, photos, videos, and all sorts of quick information.
2. Scribble With Apple Pencil
The next major highlight of iPad OS 14 is the ability to scribble on an iPad with the supported Apple Pencil. As the name of this feature suggests, it will allow users to write in a text field and everything will be automatically converted to typed text.
Thanks to machine learning, the iPad will be able to distinguish between drawing and handwritten text. Based on preference and use case you can select, cut, and paste this text wherever you want to. The next major highlight of iPadOS 14 is Shape recognition. This feature automatically transforms unprofessionally drawn shapes into geometrically perfect shapes and then you can place these shapes wherever you want to.
Presently, Scribble will support English, Traditional and Simplified Chinese, and mixed Chinese and English.
3. Enhanced Augmented Reality
The latest iPad Pro launched in 2020 came with LiDAR Scanner. Earlier, the software wasn’t able to use the hardware feature to its full potential but that’s going to change with iPadOS 14. Apple has introduced a new Depth API that will allow developers to access precise depth information.
Additionally, other mainstream iOS features like redesigned widgets, Siri, messages, and the home apps will also be available on the new iPadOS 14.
Craig Federighi, Apple’s senior vice president of Software Engineering stated that “With iPadOS 14, we’re excited to build on the distinct experience of iPad and deliver new capabilities that help customers boost productivity, be more creative, and have more fun.”
The developer preview of iPadOS 14 is available to Apple Developer Program members starting today, and a public beta version will be available to iPadOS users next month at beta.apple.com.
