About the Author

With over 15 years’ experience in the computer industry, Kevin Wilson has made a career out of technology and showing others how to use it. After earning a master’s degree in computer science, software engineering, and multimedia systems, Kevin has held various positions in the IT industry including graphic & web design, building & managing corporate networks, training, and IT support.

He currently serves as Elluminet Press LTD’s senior writer and director, he periodically teaches computer science at college in South Africa and serves as an IT trainer in England. His books have become a valuable resource among the students in England, South Africa and our partners in the United States.

Kevin’s motto is clear: If you can’t explain something simply, then you haven’t understood it well enough. To that end, he has created the Exploring Technology Series, in which he breaks down complex technological subjects into smaller, easy-to-follow steps that students and ordinary computer users can put into practice.

As iPads have continued to develop and evolve, they have received more and more features not available on iPhones. Because of this, iPads now have their own operating system called iPadOS.

So what’s an Operating System? An Operating System is a program that manages the device’s hardware resources such as memory, processor and storage. The Operating System also provides a platform for you to run apps such as web browsers, maps, email, photos, games and so on.

The iPadOS user interface is a touch screen, meaning you can directly manipulate sliders, switches, buttons and icons on screen using your finger.

iPadOS has a main screen called the home screen containing icons that represent apps. You can download countless apps from the App Store - you’ll find an app for almost anything you can think of.

Security has improved on these devices, you can unlock just with a finger print - no need to keep remembering a PIN.

Finally there’s Siri, the voice activated personal assistant that uses natural language AI to interpret voice commands you speak out loud. You can ask Siri to send messages, dial a number, as well as search the web, and answer certain questions.

What’s New?

The home screen has a few changes. The icons are now smaller, and in horizontal mode, down the left hand side you’ll see your clock with app widgets for weather, calendar, siri suggestions, maps, and screen time.

Also introduced in iPadOS is dark mode. This reduces the amount of white on the screen making it easier on the eyes.

iPadOS introduces a new feature called Sidecar that allows you to use your iPad as a second screen on a Mac running macOS Catalina. Useful for marking up documents, drawing and graphic design.

There are some new touch gestures you can use to copy & paste text or images, as well a gesture to undo edits. You can pick up the cursor and drag it precisely where you want it, or select a block of text by dragging your finger over it. You can also select a word with a double tap, a sentence with three taps, or a whole paragraph with four taps.

There is a floating on-screen keyboard you can position wherever you want, to make typing easier, as well as keyboard short-cuts should you want to add a physical keyboard.

Font management has been added to the iPad which allows you to install additional fonts from the App store should you
