iPad OS 14 Features
Apple will be launching new iPad variants this year, and everyone is curious about them. If you own an iPad or plan to get a new one, this will be beneficial for you.
After the introduction of iPad OS 13 last year, it’s time for the new version of iPad OS, which will be called iPad OS 14.
So here’s what we want and expect from iPad OS 14:
The iPad OS already features an updated home screen, new multitasking options, improved Apple pencil functionality, support for external drives, Folder sharing in files, and the list goes on and on. Still, this year we want some new features and improvements. We know that some recent leaks suggest that iOS 14 could support homescreen widgets.
Currently, the iPad has home screen widgets where you can add widgets and other information. Still, there are few limitations here; for instance, if you have multiple pages of applications, you will only see today’s view widgets on the first page, plus it only applies to landscape orientation and the first page of your home screen. So the iPad OS should bring better widgets from the home screen.
In iPad OS 14, we want a dedicated desktop mode. A dedicated desktop mode would change the user experience entirely for good.
Now, this next feature may seem very small, but it will help to improve the productivity of your iPad. You may agree that a lot of work on the iPad is in the landscape mode, but when we are using it in portrait mode, it’s frustrating that we are limited to a single app at a time.
We are not sure why Apple limits you to landscape mode, but everyone would love to get this split feature when the iPad is not in landscape mode.
Things like better multitasking is also expected from the upcoming iPad OS 14. Also, more convenient access to the control center and notifications is something that all the iPad users need. So, let’s hope for some exciting features and changes in iPad OS 14.
iPad OS 14 Beta
Generally, Apple makes sure that the Beta version if it’s latest Operating System is available only for the developers unless and until you are ready to pay $100 for the developer program. All of the above happens on the same day of the WWDC event
Beta version is less stable, and you are advised to back up all your data before installing this version.
iPadOS 14 rumors based on iOS 14
Rumors heard till now are featured below:
The first rumor that was leaked is that the iOS 14 could also feature in iPad OS 14, and that is the biggest rumors we have heard to date.
Another rumor we have in a list is that to avoid downloading the iOS 14 clips app every time, the rumor spread was that the iPad OS possibly gets the iOS 14 clips. Meanwhile, ‘clips’ permit you to use particular app features without even downloading it in practice.
