IPadOS won’t change your mind on the iPad

Wednesday, 05 Jun, 2019

For those of you sick and exhausted of all the robocalls constantly bombarding your cell phone, this one's for you.

IOS 13 is planned for the fall. Finally, iOS 13 will bring Dark Mode to your iPhone and this is proven to extend battery life on OLED devices (such as the iPhone X or later).

Apple's new iPadOS has features designed specifically for the iPad. Last year, for example, the Federal Communications Commission said it received some 232,000 complaints about robocalls and spammy telemarketing calls, while the Federal Trade Commission says the number of complaints it took in topped 3.7 million. On top of that, the Files app has received a few significant updates of its own, making the iPad a lot easier to manage when it comes to data. Apple's iPadOS also has improved multitasking, including the ability to drag and drop text and images between apps. We'll help you figure out if you should install the watchOS 6 beta on your Apple Watch or if you should wait until the fall for the public release.

But support for external storage would be meaningless without a revamped Files app, and that's exactly what Apple is giving iPad users.

If you've got AirPods, Siri will be able to read messages directly in your ear - and he/she has a new, more natural sounding voice too.

Technology giant Apple on Monday confirmed recent speculation from key players in the industry that it was going to scrap its historic iTunes service.

The new version of iPadOS will be available later this year, and in addition to all the new iPad features, iPadOS will get all the iOS 13 goods as well.

Apple's senior vice president of software engineering Craig Federighi said the company will roll out a desktop app for podcasts, an Apple TV app for its video content, a music app (meaning those with an Apple Music subscription don't need to worry) and an Apple TV+ subscription service. It's always lovely when Apple declares things like "30% faster", "up to twice as fast", etc, and yet does anyone really notice the time it takes for apps to launch?

The new Apple iPhone X are seen on display at the Apple Store in Manhattan, New York, US, September 21, 2018.

The accounts, from where all pictures, posts and videos were removed, were subsequently redirected to the official Apple TV pages for both services respectively.

Well, Apple seems to have realised this, because in macOS Catalina, nothing will happen when you plug your phone into your computer.

The updates will make the iPad feel quite a bit different from the iPhone in the OS, though already this tablet is amply supported by custom design tablet style rather than smartphone style apps which make better use of the expanse of screen area.
