Only the day of the premiere is certain at the moment because we will be able to take a first look at iPadOS 15 on June 7, 2021. Then Apple starts WWDC21, Apple’s developer conference is the starting signal for the new operating systems this year too. Aside from iPadOS 15 for the iPad, there will also be the first preview versions of iOS 15 for the iPhone and macOS 12.0 for the Mac, not to mention watchOS 8 for the Apple Watch.
iPadOS 15: New ideas for the iPad 2021
Of course, Apple is currently not revealing anything about the upcoming functions of the iPad system, but there are enough room and space for improvements. Parker Ortolani from 9to5Mac conjures up some exciting suggestions for improvement on paper. Let’s start with the widgets first. They hit the iPhone with iOS 14 like a bomb. With the iPad, however, they eke out a niche existence and have been relegated to the sidebar. This has to change. Ortolani comes up with three different widget sizes that the little helpers can and should of course be arranged freely on the home screen. It doesn’t matter whether the iPad is held in landscape or portrait format.
Must have: App media library on the iPad
Even with iPadOS 14, we miss the app media library that Apple donated to all iPhones with iOS 14. Tablet users, on the other hand, have to forego Apple’s interpretation of the “App Drawer”. Why actually? With iPad’s 15, the app media library could then be integrated as follows, the designer writes.
Will Apple fulfil all of these wishes? They make sense in any case. There will be certainty in June. Final completion will be iPadOS 15 as usual in September before it is but his hands can still put on one or another beta. Even normal users and not just developers will again be able to participate in Apple’s public beta program. We are already looking forward to it.
