EP11: iPadOS Preview

Welcome to Episode 11 of Unpacking iOS. This episode is all about iPadOS, and there’s a lot to talk about here … so, let’s start unpacking!

If you have been an iPad user for any length of time, you probably already know that the software that runs on the iPad was originally designed to run on the iPhone. Apple have just adapted it a little bit here and there to make it run well on a larger screen. However, that is beginning to change because the iPad has carved out its own unique position in the market, and it’s a different from the iPhone.

Now, sure, Apple have added iPad specific features in the past, but they have always fallen under the umbrella of iOS. This year is different. This year we get to experience iPadOS. It’s still a modified version of iOS, but the name alone is giving people a lot of hope.

Why? It suggests that Apple is finally committed to developing the iPad as a platform that is no longer dependent upon what happens to the iPhone. It is a standalone package like WatchOS, TvOS, or MacOS, and so with any luck, we won’t have to wait the customary two years until new features are added to the iPad.

So, here are the features that I am most looking forward to in iPadOS.

EP10: iOS 13 Preview

Welcome to Episode 10 of Unpacking iOS. In this episode I talk about iOS 13, the next generation of software for iPhone and iPad … so, let’s start unpacking!

Last week at WWDC, Apple unveiled its vision for what the future of iOS looks like on iPhone and iPad. iOS 13 will be available in the Fall as a free update if you have an iPhone SE or newer. This is the same generation of phones as the iPhone 6s. iPad users can update their software if they have an iPad Air 2 or later, but there is actually a bigger story for the iPad and I will talk about that a little later.

Until then, here are some of my favorite features in the new iOS 13.
