Summary

The OS' beta period will begin "today," with a full release slated for "this fall."In the demo, Apple's Craig Federighi showed off features that are likely familiar to anyone who has used larger Android phones and tablets, including the ability to pin homescreen widgets and a "fanning" interface to pick through recently opened apps.iPadOS does put a welcome, Apple-like spin on multi-window support: supported apps will allow users to grab and drop content between windows. But he said nothing about such multi-window support working with multiple apps on the same screen—such as dragging-and-dropping Safari content into a Microsoft Word window.An update to iPad's native file-browsing interface looks decidedly more like MacOS, with a column-view option that enables file preview tabs and quick-action menus. A three-finger swipe to the left will work the same as an "undo" command, and these gestures will automatically work in any iPad app that supports cut/copy/paste/undo/redo.However, Apple engineer Toby Patterson struggled with iPadOS' cursor-grabbing update during a live demo, even peppering his live narration of a demo with a number of "oops" and a full-blown "sorry." He confirmed that iPad users who like to shake their devices to "undo" can still do so.
