Wait, iPadOS? What's that?
While built on the same foundation as iOS, iPad has become a truly distinct experience. With powerful apps designed for a large Multi‑Touch display. Multitasking made simple with intuitive gestures. And the ability to drag and drop a file with a fingertip. It’s always been magical. And now it’s called iPadOS.

Here's a full list of iPad's that will support the new iPadOS:

  • 12.9-inch iPad Pro
  • 11-inch iPad Pro
  • 10.5-inch iPad Pro
  • 9.7-inch iPad Pro
  • iPad (7th generation)
  • iPad (6th generation)
  • iPad (5th generation)
  • iPad mini (5th generation)
  • iPad mini 4
  • iPad Air (3rd generation)
  • iPad Air 2

What new features are in iPadOS?
Apple have made so many tweaks, changes and improvements, and introduced to many new features specific to iPadOS that makes it impossible to list everything here, so below you will find some of my top picks I'm most looking forward to. Check here for a full feature list from Apple.

Dark Mode

More info
Dark Mode introduces a dramatic new look for iPad. It’s thoughtfully designed to make every element on the screen easier on your eyes and is seamlessly integrated throughout the system. And it’s simple to turn on from Control Center or set to automatically turn on at night.
Slide Over and Split View
More info
Slide Over and Split View have made working with multiple apps on iPad effortless. Now they can take your workflows to another level by letting you work exactly how you want in even more intuitive ways.
Apps in multiple spaces
More info
Now you can open an app on both sides of Split View, perfect for working on two documents side by side. Or even use one app across many different projects you have open on iPad. So you can have Safari paired with Pages in one space, and Safari paired with Mail in another.
New Home Screen
More info
The Home screen has been redesigned to take advantage of the large iPad display. A refined layout lets you see more apps. And you can pin useful widgets on the front page.
Pinned widgets
More info
Pin your favorite Today View widgets on the Home screen and see them at a glance.
More info
iPad is the perfect device for creating beautiful documents and page layouts. And with iPadOS, you can now get great fonts from the App Store to use in your documents.
Redesigned Files app
More info
Easily browse files deep in nested folders in the new Column View. See high‑resolution previews of selected files in the Preview pane that let you perform Quick Actions like markup, rotate, and more. And use On My iPad to create folders and store files that reside only on the local drive.
Desktop-class browsing
More info
Safari now shows you a website’s desktop version that’s scaled for the large iPad display and automatically optimized for touch input. And faster and more fluid scrolling makes browsing feel better than ever.
All-new Photos tab
More info
The Photos tab has been redesigned to help you find, relive, and share your favorite memories. Using on-device machine learning, it intelligently hides similar photos and reduces clutter, like removing screenshots and receipts, so you can focus on your best shots. You’ll also see your library come to life with auto-playing Live Photos and videos.
Faster app launch
More info
With iPadOS, apps from the App Store will be packaged in a new way that makes them up to 50 percent smaller the first time you download them, up to 60 percent smaller on average when apps are updated, and up to twice as fast to launch.

So, what iPadOS feature are you looking forward to most?
As an iPad Pro 2018 12.9" owner, I can't wait for a the new iPadOS experience, to make iPad faster, better, and more feature rich than ever!
