iPad OS 13 was a major update to all the iOS users. It came with a ton of new features and most importantly the iPad uses had a different version of the OS as an update. Now we have a dedicated operating system for the iPad Air 2 and above. It’s called the iPad OS the scale of changes in the iPad OS seems to signify a new beginning. With a bunch of new features and after using the iPad OS for a week. The names difference it does make sense. so here are the top new features and changes on the iPad West that I have learned so far.

Dark Mode

We all know about the dark mode that comes with the iOS 13. On the iPhones and on the iPad OS you can turn this on from the display settings or from the control center. I really enjoyed using this mode as it really helps when using the iPad in low-light conditions. You can also set the dark mode manually or you can set it automatically. So what this does is when it’s daytime it’s bright when it’s the night it’s dark mode. It works across all the system apps seamlessly even a wide range of third-party apps that are being updated for the dark mode.

Extend Display

For me, one of the most important features of the iPad OS is the extended display. Now I would probably not say it’s a standalone feature of the iOS 13. You also need Mac OS Catalina for this to work seamlessly. So what you can do with the extended display. You can use your iPad as a wireless or wired display. For your Mac, if you have the latest Mac OS Catalina update. This sidecar feature has endless possibilities. First is the secondary display. You can use your iPad as a drawing tablet for your Mac.

Control Centre

We have had the control center on the control center. You can now press and hold the toggles of the Wi-Fi and Bluetooth to quickly. Bring up the list of available networks or pair devices. It makes it really easy to switch between the networks and change connected wireless devices. Now I do know that Apple is really late on this feature but better late than never

Today’s View

Well, this feature is known as this is the first change you will notice after the update when in landscape mode. You have today’s page on the side of your front page. You can pin your favorite widgets to get a glance. At your updates from different apps battery status and music controls and shortcuts.

Keyboard Resize

Now you can resize your keyboard. According to your preference, you can simply pinch in the keyboard and resize it. The way you want also this can be positioned any way on the screen and is really handy.

Files App Update

It’s not a new feature but it’s an update to an old app and it’s gotten really handy. The files app from the outside the files app may look the same but now has tons of new features. First and foremost the most important is that you can now plug in an external device and storage is to access from them. You can also connect to the shared server and gain access to all the files shared at your server. You can also zip and unzip files from within the files and you get detailed metadata of your file like on the Mac OS.

Photo/Video Edit

We have a completely revamped Photos app with amazing editing tools. The new Photos app on the iPad OS and the new iOS has some great tools to edit photos. You get detailed control on editing various settings on the site as such as brightness brilliance exposure. So on and to adjust any of these options you can move. The lines of the bars just below each button to the left or right the same goes with filters as well.

Similarly, you can now also edit videos it’s no longer just trimming and basic adjustments. Now you can adjust everything like on photos like brightness exposure and also apply a filter to your video and also cropping and changing perspective as well. With good video editing tools that now included on your Photos app. You are no longer forced to find a more complicated video editing app.

PS4/Xbox Controller Support

Another great new feature is the ps4 and Xbox one controller support. Now Apple has got a really bad history of gaming. This integration certainly makes gaming on a bigger iPad really fun. Especially with that 120 Hertz display on the iPad pro. I played the Asphalt 9 and it was just like that on the console lag-free and responsive. I really can’t wait until further games are supported for the controllers as well as the Apple arcade.

External Keyboard and Mouse Support

This one’s really short you can connect your wireless keyboard and mouse to iPad and that my friend is awesome.

Multitasking Enhancement


We have multitasking enhancements Safari tab multitasking. There are tons of new multitasking features on the iPad OS. You can now split view the same app across both halves of the screen like two tabs in Safari notes. So on there are endless things you can do with these new features. You can also multitask on split view and move the apps anywhere on the screenplay multiple videos on YouTube and so much more.

Scroll Screenshot


We bought scrolls screenshots I know I know this feature was there on the Samsung devices already. This too is a worthy feature to say as now you can take full-page screenshots of the website’s emails and so on. As soon as you take a screenshot a full-page option will show up. If the content has scrollable contents then if you tap on it. You get the whole pages as a screenshot that can be saved as a PDF.

Desktop Browser


We have Safari improvements even Safari now comes with new features. Now the web pages are in full desktop versions are like mobile versions of the web pages like before and like the desktop version of the website. You can also download contents from the web pages which can be accessed on the download section of the files app.



We have shortcuts after the update you may have come across the app called shortcuts. Now, this is a great way to add automation on your favorite tasks get suggested shortcuts for your favorite apps and many more. You can set multiple alarms and trigger them by saying a simple command. Even supports third-party apps and once you get used to using this feature. You can add many shortcuts with multiple commands.

Another awesome feature sharing your audio. Now you can share your audio output on multiple airports or output devices with Apple.
