Apple’s senior vice president of software engineering, Craig Federighi, stated, “We’re thrilled to make the iPad experience even better with iPadOS 15.”
Apple is working on bringing in an enhanced and natural multitasking experience with the next iPadOS 15, which will be unveiled at WWDC 2021. Split View and Slide Over will be more visible and accessible. There will be new Home Screen and App Library widget layouts, as well as a translation tool for translating text and chats and new privacy settings.
Apple’s senior vice president of software engineering, Craig Federighi, stated, “We’re thrilled to make the iPad experience even better with iPadOS 15.” “Users can now be even more productive with more intuitive multitasking, a new Home Screen design with integrated widgets and the App Library, systemwide note-taking with Quick Note, Translate built for iPad, SharePlay, a revamped Safari experience, improved focus tools, and more.”
With iPadOS 15, multitasking with several applications should be a lot simpler. A new multitasking menu will display at the top of applications, allowing users to quickly choose between Split View and Slide Over. When utilizing Split View, users will have fast access to the Home Screen. The new shelf will allow users to multitask with applications like Safari and Pages, which have many windows, as well as rapidly preview emails. Users will be able to easily set up and switch between Split View and Slide Overusing new multitasking shortcuts from the keyboard, thanks to new keyboard shortcuts and a redesigned menu bar.
Widgets may be put among applications on home screen pages in iPadOS 15 to provide quick access to additional information. A new, bigger widget size, designed especially for the iPad’s larger display, would be able to show movies, music, games, pictures, and more. Next widgets for the App Store, Find My, Game Center, Mail, and Contacts will be included in the new OS. The App Library will automatically sort applications into categories like Productivity, Games, and Recently Added, enabling you to access all of them from the Dock.
Taking a Quick Note and Using Tags to Organize
Apple is also making it simpler to take notes and organize your ideas. Quick Note allows you to take notes throughout the whole system. Users will be able to use Quick Note to jot down ideas and add links while using Safari or applications. Even Notes includes additional features for organizing, collaborating, and capturing data. With an all-new Tag Browser and tag-based Smart Folders, tags will also make it simple to categorize and locate notes fast.
Safari has been redefined.
According to Apple, Safari will receive a new tab design that would allow users to view more of the page when surfing. Tabs, the toolbar, and the search box are all combined into a single, compact design in a new tab bar that matches the color of the site. Tab Groups will provide a new method to store and manage tabs that may be useful for things like vacation planning, shopping, and saving frequently viewed tabs. Tab Groups are also synchronized between Mac and iPhone.
A new feature in iPadOS 15 is global control, which allows users to navigate between iPad and Mac using a single mouse and keyboard, drag and drop information across devices, and more. Siri enables on-device voice recognition, and audio from Siri queries is handled completely on the iPad by default, which is designed to preserve user privacy.
On-device intelligence will be used by the VoiceOver screen reader to investigate items inside pictures, allowing users to learn more about people, text, table data, and other objects within images. Users may operate iPad using just their eyes thanks to supporting for third-party eye-tracking gear. Background noises play constantly and blend into or duck beneath other audio and system sounds to assist users to concentrate, remain calm, or relax by masking unpleasant ambient or external noise.
Starting today, Apple Developer Program members may download the developer preview of iPadOS 15, and a public beta will be available to iPadOS users next month. The ultimate release date is set for later this year, most likely in October. These new software capabilities will also be available as an update for all iPad Pro models, as well as iPad mini 4 and later, iPad Air 2 and later, iPad 5th generation and later.
