iPadOS 14: What’s new?

In 2019, global giant Apple decided to separate its mobile operating system into two separate programs: iOS for iPhone and iPadOS for tablets.

Apple announced its latest developments for iPad during the Special Event Keynote at WWDC 2020.

In 2017, Apple gave us with the iPhone X the update we were waiting for, and defined the design for all its new models. The iPhone XS and XS Max, the iPhone XR and even the more recent iPhone 11, 11 Pro and 11 Pro Max have fallen into line without any surprises on the edgeless screen, better quality materials and Face ID technology. But while the appearance hasn’t changed a lot, each iteration has added quite a few new features. And this is definitely the case for the iPhone XS: good performance, better photos and a smaller ecological footprint. Something we can get our teeth into.
