Tips and Tricks: The iPadOS Floating On-Screen Keyboard

If I had to pick one thing I don’t enjoy about life with an iPad, it would be using the on-screen keyboard in landscape. I much prefer to use my iPad Pro in landscape most of the time, going back to when I first started using the device a few months after it was first released. That is just a personal thing, but I know many others feel the same way. This is just one reason why I prefer to use Bluetooth keyboards with my iPad Pro.

Apple’s iCloud.com Beta is Changing as We Near Release Day

I periodically go back and check on Apple’s iCloud.com Beta for one reason. I’ve been waiting to get access to News Publisher on my iPad for two years now. The only place you can get access to Apple’s online Content Management System for manually positing to Apple News is right here at iCloud.com, and unfortunately, it has been inaccessible on the iPad up until now. If you look at the screenshot above, this may be about to change.

iPadOS 13 in Action: External Storage Lightning Strikes

While I love several of the new features in iOS 13 and iPadOS 13, the ability to use external storage is one I keep coming back to. It opens up lots of new and interesting possibilities that will make certain tasks easier and may even change the amount of internal storage in the iPads that we buy. As such, I’ve been pushing the limits to see what works and what doesn’t.

Is Apple Really Working on a Folding iPad?

Photo Source: 9to5Mac

A few days ago, 9to5Mac ran a piece covering a rumor that Apple may be working on an iPad with a folding screen and 5G. The rumor originated with IHS Markit analyst Jeff Lin, via Economic Daily News. It certainly sounds enticing. While Samsung and Huawei struggle to get a first-gen phone out the door, Apple zags and focuses on bringing foldable tech to a bigger device with fewer risks and pitfalls.

Version 3 of the iOS 13 and iPadOS 13 Developer Betas Arrive

A little gift from Apple before the long weekend (here in the US, at least), as their latest Developer Betas for all of their OSs just arrived.   These include iOS 13, iPadOS 13, watchOS 6, tvOS 13 and macOS Catalina. That should give all of us Apple fans (and, you know, actual developers) something to do while we’re munching on BBQ and watermelon and taking in or shooting off some fireworks this 4th of July weekend.

iPadOS 13 in Action: External Storage Support is Hit and Miss So Far

Before I get into this, I want anyone reading to bear in mind that I am talking about beta software in this article and ones to follow. This is not meant to be a review, but more of a changelog for anyone following along. I am definitely not throwing stones at Apple here, as development of iPadOS and iOS are ongoing, but simply relaying my experience with the beta so far.

Apple is Dabbling in Multi-User Support. When Will it Come to iPad?

At WWDC, Apple announced that they would finally be adding multi-user support to one of their mobile operating systems. Unfortunately, it wasn’t the one most of us have been asking for. The first round goes to the tvOS and the Apple TV, which will now have separate recommendations and favorites for different users. An honorary mention also goes to the HomePod, which will now be able to recognize voice commands from multiple users and respond with information from their iCloud account.

Safari in iPadOS is Really Close to a Full Desktop Browser

I’ll start off by saying that I’m not complaining. I really like the revamped Safari in iPadOS 13. It is a smoother and more powerful browser that takes you were you want to go without the extra fuss of requesting desktop sites or the annoyance of still getting a mobile site afterward. It works about 98% of the time in my limited experience. It just isn’t quite all the way to what I get with Firefox or Chrome on my Windows laptop. At least not yet.
