by birtanpublished on November 27, 2020

hey what's up guys sam here welcome back to another video hope you're doing well today checking out the new features in ipad os 14 that are exclusive to the ipad because obviously with ios 14 apple is sharing a ton of the new features in fact almost all of them between both the iphone and the ipad but today i want to check out just the ipad features just the good stuff apple is putting on the ipad to make it more comparable to the computer you already have so if you're excited for the video drop a like down

Below hit subscribe for more and hey let's go ahead and check out these features so if you've ever used a mac before this first one should look very familiar it's spotlight search what apple has done here very similar to many other parts of the operating system whether it's siri or the incoming call ui they were like rather than having this take up your entire display any longer what if we minimized it and made it only take up the space it needed to to work properly so apple

Did that here but also added a cool feature where like as you type suggestions pop up and it'll highlight the first result so you could just hit enter it is very very nice and one of my favorite things about the mac is spotlight search i use it constantly every day to find files to draw from different places to search different apps it's amazing and now apple's brought that amazing experience to a much better version of spotlight search on on the ipad i

Feel like you can really call it spotlight search now because it is a spotlight on what you want rather than just your entire page being taken up but that's not the only feature that apple borrowed from the mac this year they also took sidebars which are a great way to organize content in a meaningful way so that it doesn't take a long time to get to where you want to go i mean tabs make sense in some cases but on such a large display i mean imagine if all of your apps on your mac or your computer or your pc

Had tabs it wouldn't make that much sense so apple said all right well what if we did a sidebar on the ipad now and that is a much better experience you see this in photos files apple music calendar notes and it is an amazing improvement like there's no other way to say it other than the ios version on the ipad even broadly in a lot of parts of ipad os 13 from last year felt like it was blown up from the iphone felt like it was the iphone and half optimized for the ipad and the

Addition of these sidebars and support for developers to add these really good looking sidebars makes it feel well like it should be on an ipad like this is how it should have been from the beginning and it's an amazing design upgrade like finding stuff is just better and inputting text is a lot better as well if you have an apple pencil a lot of the rest of the improvements have to do with the apple pencil and how it works with ipad os and the first big one is called

Scribble now you probably know what this is already if you've been paying attention to the news but it's pretty sweet you know how we like to write things and sometimes that doesn't really transform when you have a tablet you have to end up typing them or using the on-screen keyboard you can now write essentially anywhere in any text field right in it it's very intuitive to the point where i'm blown away at how well it works i mean it doesn't look like you should be writing there and

Then you write in and it almost does appear like a native writing interface it is out of this world great i have to compliment apple in every facet here because it just works you're right and it turns into text that is very very cool and it no longer destroys your workflow when you have an apple pen spin type or input things with your hands so you can just keep writing and keep moving around and keep using the same tool to do everything but apple's included some

Hidden complexities in here that you might not know about so you can delete words just by scribbling on them so just like you can write you can just scribble over like you would on a paper but this time it actually disappears because you know your ipad isn't an actual piece of paper what about actually being able to select text well you can just draw a circle around it and select text easy as that what about joining things or actually making a space you can tap and

Hold to make a space and then you can write right there and then to separate words you can just draw like a line in between two words that are connected it really is that simple and if this is an innovation on the ipad like finally we've had the pencil for years i don't know what else would be and as you can probably imagine if you can write to text here where else would this work well there's a new tool in the notes app that is literally a write to text tool if you try to draw anything else with it it just turns it into a random symbol and tries to

Interpret you know the madness that you're putting into the computer to interpret so if you just draw letters sentences words puts it on there really easily can even recognize a lot of symbols and you no longer if you have more handwriting like myself you no longer have to make it a guess for everybody else around you next up there's also a new feature in ipad os 14 known as smart selection so if you have a bunch of things that are hand written you can basically trace over them and then either copy them

As text and paste them somewhere else or just get a better handle with this really nice clear crisp outline that happens across all of your texture shapes for prior you'd have to do like just a circle around your content in general you can now specifically pick exactly what you want to highlight and copy it as texture do whatever else you want with it it's a nice improvement there i think it's going to be coming elsewhere especially in third-party apps but right now you can try it out for yourself inside of notes but this next

One is my favorite because it allows you to get those shapes you've always wanted to be able to draw and just haven't had the artistic or a mathematic ability to do so next time you're trying to draw a circle or a star or a square just stop and pause right when you're about to complete it and apple will automatically correct the shape for you but with the same like vectors and velocity and direction that you drew it in so i couldn't get this to work i was like what am i doing wrong you literally just have to stop and pause

Temporarily when you're done and and then it'll show up which is great you know for us non-artists out here we finally have a chance for somebody else to be able to see what we're drawing and then finally there is data detection for handwritten stuff so if you have a date or a phone number maybe even an email address you can now tap on it and create something or do some action with that without having to turn it into text manually in another way so you just do this and there you go you can create a calendar event from

Your previously handwritten text so if you've ever taken handwritten notes again like this is just apple trying to save you time with the apple pencil you can go on and you can get the job done way quicker without having to manually type things in take it over to the calendar type it it's it's instant and it's all based on what you've already written so those are the biggest new exclusive features to ipad os 14 honestly not the largest update but also not the smallest update i did the sidebars are great

Search is amazing and the new features for the apple pencil are amazing for workflow like you can just keep writing and deleting and circling and selecting and detecting data all using the pencil which is really great now i don't use the pencil that much in general but i think this could persuade me to possibly do so more than i ever have before so if you guys enjoyed the video drop a like down below to seriously help me in the
