Apple is set to release it’s new iPadiOS this upcoming September 30th. For all you Apple iPad enthusiasts – the wait has finally come. The new release has plenty of exiting new features that will satisfy even the very finicky of users– of Apple products anyway.
Although it’s mostly just a name change to it’s iPad moniker, it is technically the first ever release of iPadOS. In June, Apple announced that it would be splitting apart iOS — which until now has been the operating system for both the iPhone and the iPad — so that there’s a separate version of the OS for phones and tablets. It’s not clear how different the two really are under the hood, but Apple is starting to differentiate them more and more as it adds more powerful features to the iPad.
iPadiOS is very impressive lightweight and fast
iPadOS comes with some much anticipated features, including Apple finally adding widgets to the home screen. It also brings “desktop-class” browsing for Safari, an updated Files app, and improvements to multitasking.
The OS will be based on the new 10.2-inch iPad, which Apple is opening orders for starting today and will be in stores on September 30th. If you already own an iPad Air 2 or later, an iPad Pro, a fifth-generation or later iPad, or iPad mini 4 or later, you’ll be able to install the update on your existing tablet.
