In principle, the function called Scribble will have support for English and Chinese (traditional and simplified). It is likely, however, that it will also gain support for other languages ​​in the coming months.

iPadOS 14: iOS 14 experience

IPadOS 14 also brings a user experience similar to the recently launched iOS 14. Icons can be expanded to provide more information – in a visual similar to Windows Phone tiles. The novelty also accompanies call notifications and more discreet messages.

It is also possible to add a Smart Set of widgets, which takes advantage of the “smart performance of the device itself to show the widgets you need just when you need them,” according to Apple.

Another feature of iPadOS 14 is the possibility to find applications, access contacts, files and other information through the search bar. Keeping a compact look, the good news is that you can start your search from anywhere, without having to leave the current application. Not only has the search on the iPad improved, but also on the Safari browser, which now provides more relevant suggestions as the user types.

iPadOS 14: augmented reality more immersive

Apple’s major focus in recent years, Augmented Reality promises to be even more immersive with the iPadOS 14. The operating system will offer ARKit 4, a toolkit that provides developers with an API for more accurate notions of depth. As such, app and game creators will be able to take body measurements for more accurate virtual tests or use the iPad’s sensors to “paint” their room.
