In addition to the basic features of iOS 12, which will be available on all iOS devices when the update is released in the fall, Apple's iPad (US $ 318 in Sam's Club) will receive some new ones features.
While the absence of major productivity improvements on the iPad can be disappointing, you'll still get Apple's new Screen Time tool, better notifications, group FaceTime calls and Siri enhancements – just to name a few.
Beyond the core features of iOS 12, here are five specific features for the iPad that appear after the official release of iOS 12 this fall. Note that iOS 12 is currently in beta and is not completed. Functions can – and often do – change when they are published. If so, we will update this post to reflect the changes.
Status bar gets a new look
The status bar, which displays items such as time, Wi-Fi, battery, and the like, has been rearranged. When the iPad is unlocked, you will now find the date and time on the left side of the status bar. On the right side you will find Wi-Fi, DND indicator, battery life and mobile signal (if applicable).
Multitasking looks different, works the same way
There is not much new here. You're still using the same ramble from the bottom of the screen to show the app dock, and a long ramble opens the multitasking view. The biggest change is the absence of the Control Center in the multitasking view.
New Home of the Control Center
The lack of Control Center in multitasking view is due to the fact that Control Center now behaves in the same way as on the iPhone X ($ 1,000 at Cricket Wireless) . This means you need to swipe down from the top right corner of the screen to access it.
Voice Memo App
Apple has added its "Voice Memos" app from iOS 12 on the iPad. The app has many features including trim, replace audio, restore the original clip, and iCloud sync between iOS devices and your Mac
Also on the iPad party is Apple's Stocks App. The Stocks app on the iPad has been redesigned to bring in news and information about companies you're watching. Of course, the messages in the Stocks app come from the Apple News app.
