Apple releases software updates for several smart devices

Monday, 30 Mar, 2020

Similar to the Face ID scanner on the front, the LiDAR Scanner gives the iPad Pro a better understanding of its surroundings thanks to 3D mapping magic. The revision moves the delete icon away from the reply icon to prevent users from accidentally deleting an email they wanted to reply to. That's all changing this year, because the new Pro was announced alongside a new Magic Keyboard which attaches magnetically and has a trackpad. And all those users who have enabled automatic updates on their device will get a notification once the update is downloaded. The same Apple Pencil that sits on the side of the iPad Pro to recharge and pair works regardless of which iPad Pro you have: 2018 or 2020, 11 or 12.9 inches. Powered by A12Z Bionic chipset with neural engine with eight-core GPU, it is claimed to be the the fastest and most-powerful iPad Apple has made. From there, you should see an update waiting for you in General Software Update.

Call it what you want - iPad Pro 4, iPad Pro 2020; it's being marketed as new iPad Pro, while technically it's the fourth generation - but as with new releases, there are new, great things to expect.

With a new iPad model or two out in the wild, it's not surprising that things have changed. All the iPhone with iOS 13 can update theupgrade iOS 13.4. Apple introduced a nifty new Magic Keyboard with trackpad alongside the new ‌iPad Pro‌ models that's coming in May, but it also debuted a new Smart Keyboard Folio, which is available now. If you're using a trackpad, iPadOS supports gestures that let you switch between apps, open the app switcher and activate the Dock or Control Center.

And there are a number of other smaller updates, from nine new Memoji stickers, a revised toolbar for the Mail app, and keyboard shortcuts for the Photos app.

This iOS 13.4 and iPad OS 13.4 perk is up to developers to implement, but this will hopefully mean buying apps for multiple Apple operating systems and transferring files between them is much simpler than before. The big three are arguably full trackpad and pointer support for recent iPad, iCloud Drive folder sharing, and universal app purchases.

A bug with hotspot connectivity on iOS 13 and iPadOS 13 was recognized this week, according to an internal Apple document.

All updates include bug fixes and security patches. So tap on the Download and Install button and wait for a while to experience the new features.
