iPad OS: release date, features and public beta details

The public beta version of iPadOS was officially launched with a series of new features that Apple makes its iPad different from an iPhone with iOS 13, and now we also have the first beta version of 13.1.

We have a list of the best iPadOS features that you can experience in public beta versions 1 and 2. Sure, many changes have been shared. After all, "it is based on the same basis as iOS," according to Apple, but expects iPadOS to grow more on its own operating system over time.

iPadOS brings a variety of critical improvements to the tablet's user interface. Some of these make better use of screen space, while others introduce new gesture controls (and even mouse compatibility) for a better tablet experience. In summary, iPad users will not only continue to run an improved iOS.

iPadOS release date and public beta time

iPadOS public beta release date landed on June 24, and contains many of the features that Apple shows us in its 2019 WWDC keynote. Since then, Apple has launched a new version for registered tablets, with iPadOS public beta 2 available since July 8. Since there we have had the first iPadOS 13.1 public beta, as new changes progress before the imminent launch & # 39; complete & # 39 ;.

We will see more features when the final version of the software comes out of beta, probably in September.

In previous years, September has been the month in which Apple launches its new software to the public to coincide with the launch of its new iPhones, and we expect the same activity around the iPhone 11 this year, which we now know is will be released on September 10.

What iPads will work with iPadOS?

Apple has confirmed that "iPad Air 2 and later, all iPad Pro, iPad 5th generation and later, and iPad mini 4 and later" models will receive the iPadOS update when it is released later this year.

What iPads are being lost this year, after getting iOS 12 in 2018? Well, it is the end of the upgrade path for the original iPad Air, iPad Mini 2 and iPad Mini 3. It is not clear if older iPads will have iOS 13 or if they have fallen completely behind.

The following iPads will receive an iPadOS update in (likely) September and October)

(As a reminder, it is always better to avoid using the beta version of the software on a primary or daily use device, since Sometimes there may be erratic elements within the system: wait until the final version arrives in the near future.

New iPadOS home screen

The first big change you'll notice on iPadOS is in the new home screen The application icon grid is tighter, allowing you to fit more on the screen and reduce the amount of dead space on the screen.

With a tighter application grid, there is now an option to display Today View together to them, for a more useful general information screen.

You can add it to the home screen to quickly access the widgets with a simple swipe from the left side of the screen, and you can change the widgets set here to show the most relevant ones for you.

Sidecar is a big change

If you're wondering what could be the most important feature of iPadOS, Sidecar is a true competitor. It is natively integrated in cable (or wireless) support to use your iPad as a second Mac screen, bringing with it a lot of functionalities.

This mode effectively converts any iPad into a portable monitor, one with a powerful internal battery, allowing multiple applications and windows to be dragged to your screen and interacting with the use of a mouse, keyboard or Apple Pencil.

You still can't waste your time with the resolution, so you can't work with very fine details and may want to wait a bit until the final release of the software appears at the end of September, but even at this initial stage, the Apple fans will discover that they suddenly have a new screen for their Mac in another pocket of their backpack.

iPadOS has a new way of multitasking

Multitasking also gets an update on iPadOS in several ways.

First, you can use Split View to see two application windows at the same time for the same application or two different applications. iPadOS uses a drag-and-drop interface here, which facilitates switching between applications and windows.

Slide Over allows you to quickly open an application in a side window, on top of another application, allowing you to quickly check things like emails, messages or reminders without having to leave the current application you are using .

Dragging up from the bottom of the screen will allow you to move between applications in the Slide Over panel.

Apple has also brought the Mac Exposé feature for iPadOS, which allows you to get an overview of all your open applications, making it easy to jump between them and close any that no longer need to run in the background.

iPadOS obtains support for USB drive and SD card

External storage fans rejoice! iPadOS will allow you to connect a USB drive or an SD card reader to your iPad, and the Files application can read the plug-in and allow you to easily manage data between the iPad's internal storage and the external drive.

Files gets a column view to take better advantage of the iPad's widescreen, and the iCloud Drive allows you to share folders and display content from a USB drive or SD card if they are connected.

There is also good news for photographers, since iPadOS support is being incorporated to allow you to connect your camera to your iPad and import images directly into editing applications such as Lightroom.

Increased iPadOS performance

Your current iPad could increase its performance when iPadOS arrives, with Apple claiming that its tablet-specific operating system is faster than iOS 12.

It says Face ID unlocks are up to 30% faster, while applications start up to twice as fast as iOS 12, and the applications themselves should be smaller in download size (up to 50%), taking up less of that precious space of storage.

Websites with desktop quality and navigation on iPadOS

The Safari web browser has also been enhanced with iPadOS, because it is no longer linked solely to iOS and a mobile ecosystem.

That's right: you're not just watching mobile sites anymore, since iPadOS sees websites in a modified desktop view that is a bit cleaner and optimized for touch.

Nor does it only work with Apple websites, the likes of Google Docs and WordPress web applications will also work better with Safari on iPadOS.

Apple's browser will also get a download manager, 30 new keyboard shortcuts and better tab management when iPadOS arrives later this year.

New gestures of iPadOS

One of the greatest features in all iPadOS are the new gestures. The ones we have seen are quite simple: pinch with three fingers to cut, separate with three fingers to paste, slide with three fingers to undo. Easy.

In some applications, you can also pinch the keyboard with two fingers to reduce it to the size of mobile iOS and move it. Place it next to the screen and boom: you can write with a thumb.

Add to that the new gestures for the home screen and multitasking, and a learning curve may be required to get used to all the new interactions that come with iPadOS.

Marked and much more on iPadOS

Markup also receives an update, and may mark entire web pages, documents and emails.

A simple swipe up from the corner with your Apple Pencil launches the markup and shows the newly redesigned tool palette, which can be dragged and repositioned anywhere on the screen.

And speaking of Pencil, Apple has reduced the latency of its input from 20 ms to 9 ms, which means that you will get a more natural experience, similar to that of a pen when using it.

Many of the new features that are coming to iOS 13 are also aimed at iPadOS, such as Dark Mode, custom fonts, new photos organized by machine learning and the QuickPath slide-type and SwiftKey type keyboard function.

Mouse compatibility for iPadOS

iPadOS supports the connection of a mouse to your iPad, although it is not something you will find in the center of the official iPadOS feature list.

Developer Steve Troughton-Smith initially tweeted instructions he discovered to connect a mouse through the new Accessibility settings, and Tom's Guide successfully activated a mou se on an iPad. While it doesn't seem to be the simplest, we are excited about a major leap in the productivity and accessibility potential of the iPad family.
