One of the selling points of the iPad is the accompanying Apple Pencil accessory. With pressure-sensitivity support and palm rejection, it turns the iPad into a legitimate note-taking and drawing app. However, support for the Apple Pencil was lacking in a lot of native apps save for a handful such as notes.
On Apple’s laptops, users can adjust the brightness of their display from either the keyboard or the Touch Bar. On the iPad, despite it having a keyboard accessory, does not offer up that functionality. However, according to 9to5Mac, they have found code in the iPadOS 13.5.5 beta that suggests that could change.
Apple recently issued an update for its iPads in the form of iPadOS 13.4.1. If you have yet to update your tablet, you might be getting some prompts to do so, however, it might also be a good idea to hold off on updating it just yet, especially if you own the 10.5-inch iPad Pro.
According to Apple, one of the company’s most popular iPads is the 9.7-inch model. It’s actually not that surprising when you consider that Apple had previously launched an updated 9.7-inch model that was considerably cheaper and acted as an entry-level device for those looking to dip their toes in the iPad waters.
At WWDC 2019, Apple announced iPadOS which was the company giving the iPad the operating system it deserved. It was later discovered that there was evidence to suggest that support for the mouse was part of iPadOS, something that had been rumored about for a while now.
As powerful as the iPad Pros are, many have pointed out that it still isn’t quite there yet in terms of it being a potential laptop replacement. This is because of the limitations of iOS, where you can’t quite pull off certain functions like you would on an OS like macOS or Windows, but that has changed when Apple launched iPadOS.
It has been reported a few times that Apple is looking to revamp the software experience for the iPad. The company finally showed off what it has been working on today. The iPad now has its very own operating system that’s aptly called the iPad OS. It brings a variety of new features to Apple’s tablet platform in addition to visual interface improvements.
