iPadOS 14 is Out! – What’s New?

by birtanpublished on October 4, 2020

Hi everyone aaron here for zollotech and yesterday ipad os 14 released to the public that means it's available for all ios 14 supported devices which means it's available for the same devices that supported ipad os 13. so if you have an ipad air 2 for example all the way up to this 20 20 12.9 inch ipad pro they'll be supported and you'll be able to install it now this came in at a very large 3.99 gigabytes on my ipad pro but it may vary depending on which

Version you're coming from but either way it's a pretty large install with some significant updates now along with this update apple also released ios 14 watch os 7 as well as tv os 14 mac os big sur will be coming later probably next month now let's go ahead and take a look at what's new within ipad os 14 there are a ton of changes and many of those changes are carried across from ios 14 and so in this video i'm going to cover just the changes that are specific to

Ipad if you want to know every single change within this i have a 42 minute comprehensive video that covers everything that's in imessage to safari to music and everything else so if it's specific to ipad i'll cover in this video but if you want to check out my ios 14 what's new video that's where i cover every single detail now as far as ipad os if you're on the beta and maybe you're a developer or public beta tester and you

Want to remove the beta or you want to make sure that you no longer get updates well it's pretty easy to do that you want to go to your settings within settings make sure you tap on general then go to profile tap on profile again and then remove the profile and then reboot as long as you do that and you updated the other day to ipad os gm or ipad os 14 gm you'll have the final version and you're good to go it's the same as the public version if you haven't

Updated yet well you can update now and it's the same thing and so the first thing that's new are widgets now widgets have been here for a while with ipad os 13 and before and so if we swipe in from the left and we bring in our widgets you'll see there's some new ones such as battery and a world clock and some suggested apps and stocks but there's additional widgets as well and so if we go to edit and then we tap on the plus we have additional widgets including weather so if we want to bring in

Weather press and hold drag it over and now we have weather this is not just weather though it's also a smart stack so we can swipe through it and see different calendar events and it will change throughout the day and let us know of upcoming changes or based on what we're doing that day so maybe you have a calendar event it will change to that calendar event when you're close to that time that the event occurs

And so you have that as well there's also additional widgets and if you scroll down there's new widgets but there's no apps that have these new widgets yet or at least there's few widgets so you have to wait for your app developer for whatever app you're using it could be a news app or something else to create a new widget that you can use here so they're not available everywhere now unlike ios 14 these widgets cannot be moved around the screen you can't move these

Maybe over to here so they stay in this column on the left that you can either keep on your screen or remove altogether so you can change that but you cannot put them anywhere you want the other thing you don't get from ios 14 is an app list on ios 14 if you scroll all the way to the right you have a app list that actually organizes your different apps into categories such as recently added and suggestions you don't get that on ipad os 14. so

Hopefully we'll see that in the future but right now we don't have it so maybe we'll have it as an option later on now within ipad os 14 there's many changes that bring consistency throughout the os and what i mean by that is apps like photos for example have a sidebar now and then if i go over to say music we have a similar sidebar this is true of other apps as well such as voice memos calendars notes files mail and contacts as well so maybe we want to go into files let's

Go to files you'll see on the left it's the same thing so again it's consistency we can tap here and get rid of it but it's for consistency's sake it's very mac os like in that sense so it's a little bit different and i think it's a nice little change now one thing we get that's new on ipad is lyrics now we've had lyrics before but now we get full screen lyrics if i play this song i'll just turn it down here and maybe we want lyrics we can tap on the lyrics and we get normal lyrics if

They're not available full screen but if we go to a song that is available and in this song you can see that we have full screen lyrics if we want them so you have this sort of lyric that's next to your music and then if we want let's see if we can rotate it here you'll get full screen lyrics if you rotate to portrait mode so it's a nice little addition if you want to use lyrics with your songs and use it full screen now search has been updated and it reminds me a lot of spotlight on a mac so if we

Pull down or maybe we have a magic keyboard and we hit a key combination of command and then space we'll get the same thing so if we pull down here now we can search throughout so maybe we want to search for apple it will suggest things as we type and then we have app store because we typed apple we can just hit go and it will open the app store or the apple store maybe we do the same with safari we don't have to even type the entire word we can just type

Saf and it will open if we hit enter this is very much like a map so search is not only faster it searches more searches things that are relevant to you and gives you suggestions as well such as autofill suggestions or safari or something that's in a pages document so it's been updated and it's really nice if you're not used to it already i think you'll love it once you try it out now there's a huge new update when you use the pencil so you will need an apple pencil supported device so an ipad 6 or so or newer and ipad air depending

On the generation if your device works with an apple pencil it will work with this and they've updated what's called scribble so basically anywhere there's a text field you can write so if we go back to safari and then i tap in the top here i can write apple my handwriting is terrible see it's apple.com it recognized i wrote apple.com and immediately translated it to text then i can go and hit search and then go to that website so if i want

To write anywhere i can and it's a really nice feature now there's additional things when you're using scribble so maybe we're in scribble and i want to select something i can circle it or i want to put a different space we can draw a line it's a little bit hard to do let's unselect here there we go we can draw space if we draw up we can bring it together so we'll bring that back together space up up you get the idea it takes a

Little bit of practice to get it right but once you've got it it works really well we also can scribble something out to erase it and it works very well it's super intuitive once you learn how to do it so it's just a selection issue from time to time now aside from scribble we get some great updates with notes and text recognition so if we go into notes you'll see it says this is a new note and we also have the sidebar similar to what we have in other apps but let's go back into the full screen note

And maybe we'll just write that this is a note so this is a note and you'll see it's very messy and if i double tap on it it will select the note and we can select all the text if i tap on it again i can copy as text then let's go over to say pages here and then i can paste and it says this is a note it recognized that i wrote it copied it as text and allowed me to paste it in pages as text now i'm on a blank page let me write the word zolotek and you'll see that it's in the color red

Now maybe i don't want it to be red but i wrote it like that by accident if i press and hold on it and go to my pen options we can change the color to whatever we want so it works on any selected text or squiggle or whatever you write so maybe i want to draw a line underneath and again that one's red i can select just the little squiggle line underneath and again maybe i'll change that to green and you'll see when i tap off of it it's green so you have all of this written text

Selection character recognition and more that i think is a huge update if you're using the apple pencil and there's even more that you can do now in addition to just notes you can now draw perfect shapes so maybe i want to draw a circle i draw a circle hold at the end let go we've got a perfect circle if i want to draw a square i can do the same thing there we go and you don't have to be perfect with it maybe i want a star maybe a triangle you get the idea even a right angle

It will do that you can draw most shapes and just hold at the end after you've drawn it you can use your finger as well and it works on ios as well so you can create all of these different shapes so there's some huge updates for note takers as well as those that just want to draw maybe our terrible writers but we need to take notes and then have it later translated into text i think that's really great now there's some other features as well so let's go home and take a look at siri

Siri gets an ui design that's a little bit different and also gets all the same knowledge and everything that you get on ios 14. so if we press and hold how are you today how are you today it says i'm fine thanks so we've got siri in the bottom right as a text field and i think in general it's pretty nice that they've just minimized it and while you're talking to siri you can also interact elsewhere so maybe let's go to the apple website so when you're in safari and you want to

Ask siri something or have it keep a note or take a note what games are on tonight you can interact with it while you're talking to siri so maybe we'll pick baseball here and you can see you can interact with them separately so it's really nice that way and i'm glad they've updated it one thing they've updated in safari that i talked about in my ios 14 video is privacy and so if you tap the two a's in your address bar and tap on privacy report you'll see it pops up and shows what it

Prevented from tracking you so it says 192 trackers were prevented from profiling me so it's got a lot of nice prevention for you you can see your trackers here see the different websites you visited and others so it's really nice that it shows you that and then if you're on a website that has say a language you don't understand in my case that would be many but let's go to this is the website i use by default because it's pretty easy i'll just go here it's peugeot.fr so

We'll go to the double a's and now you can see it says translate to english and so enable translation it will take a second and then it will translate so there we go it switched and now it says benefit from our offers of the moment so it translated it to english so i can read it and this works with i think about 10 different languages at the moment and it may not work depending on where you live so let's turn that back off you can just go to view original and it switches back

Now there are not many other changes that are specific to ipad other than what's in ios 14 already however there's one that if you're using a remote keyboard maybe you're using the magic keyboard you have an additional option for emoji so in safari maybe i want to insert an emoji when i'm talking to someone press and hold the little globe now we've got an emoji keyboard and so it pops up when you're using a mechanical keyboard that makes it a little bit easier

Because you don't have this emoji button so it's built in now if you're using that mechanical keyboard connected to your device so it can be any keyboard just hit the bottom left key and tap in a text field hit it and now you've got emojis that pop up it's a nice little addition so within ipad os 14 you have all of the same changes that you get with ios 14 unless it relates to say the phone app or phone calls or contact tracing otherwise

Everything is new control center all of the same settings it's very consistent across both devices hopefully they'll bring widgets that you can place wherever you want later on that would be helpful for a lot of people and i think an app list might be nice for those that want that as well but other than that there's nothing else new that's specific to ipad but some great updates with scribble and text recognition within within notes so that's everything new that's specific to your ipad on ipad os 14

If you have an apple pencil of course there's a lot more new for you and some really helpful features but let me know what you think of this update in the comments below it's definitely a bigger update for iphone than it is for ipad this year but either way i think it's pretty good so if you'd like to get your hands on this wallpaper of course i'll link it in the description like i normally do and if you haven't subscribed already please subscribe and if you enjoyed the video please give it a like as always thanks for watching i'll see

You next time you
