iPadOS 13 Beta 1 – What’s New?

hi everyone Aaron here for ZolloTech and
today Apple released iPad OS 13 beta 1 to developers now this was difficult to
install you had to use iTunes and also have Xcode 11 installed download the
file and then install it on the device they really don’t want people other than
developers installing it the public beta will be available in July and then the
final version will come out in September and here are all the supported devices
for it it goes back not as far as I’d like but it’s ok now the first thing you
need to know is that there are a ton of different changes I did a separate video
on iOS 13 covering it on the iPhone and that is a 25 minute video with a ton of
different changes now I’m not going to cover all of those little changes for
the iPad because those carry over from iOS 13 as well to the iPad but the iPad
gets its own set of unique updates so I’m going to cover those specifically
now performance on the iPad should be 2 times faster as far as app launches and
also download sizes in the app store should be better as far as half the size
and apps should load about two times as fast so it should be really quick now
this is the home screen layout of iPad OS and as you can see we have widgets on
the left you don’t have to have that but I have it attached here you can go
through your different widgets and then you have your different icons here as
well that’s really nice we also have dark mode enabled none of the control
center has change you should be able to get into control center tap and hold or
3d touch or 3d press on the icon and have it pop out and give you different
Wi-Fi connections or Bluetooth connections I can’t get it to work on 4
different devices it’s supposed to be there it will probably be there in the
future for me they’ve also updated split view and slide over so let’s go into
Safari you’ll see there’s Safari nothing exciting there although there’s more to
talk about with Safari if we slide up here maybe we’ll bring in the App Store
so we’ve got the App Store of course we can do the normal slide over and split
view thing just like that you do have to pull a lot longer though or a lot
further down in order to get that to work so you’ve got normal slide over
we’ll go back now we’ve got a little slide over here from a different web
page of course we can do forward and back but if we bring in an app here
there’s our app slide up again slide up again and then let’s bring in music and
now we’ve got two apps there because I brought one there before if we slide up
again and maybe bring now let’s bring another Safari window right here so now
we have three different windows and we can swipe between them if we swipe up a
little bit we can swipe them off the display so that part’s really nice it’s
just a better way to work you have more information if we want to move this over
here we can you grab this little edge here and you can move it and you’ve got
the full thing of course you can resize it and zoom and everything if you’re on
a webpage so it’s it’s pretty nice that way now we have app expose on the iPad
as opposed to just the Mac so now if we go into Safari swipe up here a little
bit tap Safari you’ll see all your different
open windows or apps so that part’s really nice it’s just built in and very
simple to use now we have a very big update to Safari in that it’s a desktop
browser now so this is a full desktop mode now if I tap the two icons or two
font icons here we can resize font in real time but we have some more settings
here to request the mobile website if we go to the settings you’ll see we have
desktop website and reader automatically camera microphone and location so
request desktop a website all the time so this will work with things like
Squarespace WordPress this is actually running on WordPress WordPress and
actually Google’s Chrome apps so you want to use sheets or Docs or whatever
they will work in a full browser that part’s super nice now you can do
something neat with notes too you can just drag and drop things from the
website so if you haven’t seen this will bring in notes so now I have a separate
split view maybe I want this over maybe I want this over here I can just drag
and drop it put it in there you can do that with mail or whatever you’d like
it’s really nice and helpful you could do some of that before but they’ve
really improved it this time around now if we go back into Safari and I tap up
here on the keyboard we have the option to shrink the keyboard now so maybe
we’re working on something and we have the keyboard and we only really have one
hand to work with it well now I can drag it around do whatever I’d like I can all
so swipe on it so if I want to swipe Zillow tech I can do that and then bring
it back super easy to use and kind of reminds me of features they had on the
iPad a long time ago but they brought it back now we have another neat option
when we capture a webpage so maybe we’ll go to my website here so now we’ll go in
here and take a screenshot and if we tap on this you’ll see we can mark this up
just like we could before but we have an option up here for full-page and now
I’ve got my full website page and I can mark that up and you’ll see there’s a
new pencil tab or pencil palette down here as well so I’ve got all these
different new icons can circle on everything erase whatever we want and we
can move this wherever we’d like so if we want it on the side here we can move
it if we want it over here we can move it so it’s really nice and works
throughout the OS when you need to use the pencil it’s a pretty nice way of
doing things now the next thing has to do with fonts I mentioned this in my iOS
13 video and in general there is fonts now there are no new fonts yet but
you’ll be able to install them at some point apparently and let’s check out
notes next because this is pretty nice if we go into notes you’ll see here’s my
note from before maybe I’ll just type something hi how are you today and I’ll
just put good just to make this have a couple separate things now they’ve
changed the way you interact with text so let me zoom in here to show you so
now instead of kind of tapping and figuring out where you are if you put
your finger down and then move it around you can just move the cursor around it’s
much much easier and now if I want to select text I can tab and then just drag
it around it’s really easy and then there’s a new gesture for copying and
it’s a three finger pinch and pinch in and pinch out so if we pinch in it says
copy up at the top so let me do that again
so we’ll tap here so now I’ve selected this and if I want to copy let me copy
it it says copy up here then let’s go down here scroll a little bit and then
pinch out to paste it it’s one way to copy and paste if you want to undo three
fingers three fingers on the keyboard should
undo or redo so to the left to the left is undo to the right is redo so again
left or right is undo and redo so you can do that pretty simply and it shows
up on top showing you what you’re actually doing
now photos gets a redesign just like iOS does and it’s split in two years and
things like that and it’s really nice it will take a while to kind of figure out
how everything is going to organize itself using machine learning but you’ll
see there’s days months years you can break it up with a little tab up there
and I went over this in my iOS 13 video it’s the same thing here with the iPad
as far as that and editing one of the features I’ve been very interested to
see if it’s here and it is is keyboard and mouse support so it already supports
keyboards but under accessibility you’ll see we have keyboards and Apple has
added a bunch of shortcuts for that but also if we go to touch
we have assistive touch we can turn that on and then down here you’ll see we have
pointing devices and mouse keys so if I go to pointing devices you can add a
Bluetooth device or if you have a USB dongle and say a Microsoft Mouse with a
USB key on the bottom you can just take this plug it in plug it in the bottom
here and now it says Microsoft 2.4 gigahertz transceiver version 6 and we
can assign the buttons on the actual Mouse itself and so we’ve got those
options and of course we’ve got other options as well for pointing and what
they do but as you can see here let’s see if I can move this over you can see
I’m moving a cursor around the screen if I right-click I can go home and then I
could go maybe to the app store I’ll hit retry here and we can scroll with the
scroll wheel it goes up and down and then click on whatever we want so this
could be very helpful for editing and things like that and say luma fusion and
then of course you’ve got your different touch notifications here or touch
buttons so it’s really nice and basically anything you had here but now
you have your button here I can just drag back and forth it’s very responsive
so that’s really nice as well now a major feature with iPad OS is called
sidecar and sidecar allows you to control a Mac and
I’m actually doing it wirelessly you can see the icon right here you just go to
the Mac and tell it to connect you can see it right here let me zoom in a
little bit and now I have full control of my Mac I’m actually in Final Cut
right now and I’m wirelessly moving things and you can see I just move that
you’ve got all your different trim things here and then I can go to
different apps maybe I want to go to Safari I can tap on Safari
it’s a little bit strange at first to use and it works much better with the
pencil so we’ll go to Apple here and you’ll see we don’t have the keyboard
because well we could use the Mac keyboard so let me just type over here and you’ll see I was just typing on my
Mac and now I can scroll through with two fingers so the interface is pretty
interesting these are things like shift and go back and again I can go to Final
Cut Pro here and completely edit I hit the back button and it works it’s pretty
incredible that it works this well if I go into music
it will open music so you can see I have music on the iPad if I go back over to
Final Cut I can go to Final Cut I can drag the
windows around and it’s in real time on the Mac and it’s pretty incredible that
I can do that and I’m on my iPad so I can just swipe off like that and I’m not
sure if we can bring anything else in maybe we can bring notes in and it
doesn’t like to be resized so it won’t work that way but you can see it just
went away it actually caused an error on the MacBook but if I go back in it
actually automatically finds the device and connects to it so that part’s great
I’ve got my full Mac here so maybe I want to edit a video and sit on the
couch and do it wirelessly I could do that it’s pretty nice and it works
really fast wirelessly or wired there’s also updates to a couple apps I
covered in iOS 13 that video there’s maps messages reminders mail and then
there’s a huge update to the file app on this particular device so let’s go into
that will go into files and you’ll see there’s files now we have a column view
here by using this button and then we can look at name date size kind
tags and this has a lot of different capabilities so we’ll go to iCloud Drive
and you’ll see there’s some things here and that’s pretty nice it’s kind of like
what we’d see in finder on the Mac but one of the great things about this is it
has a ton of different features so it now not only has the new view but you
can connect to servers such as SMB servers external drives it will unzip
and zip files so I have a little a little SD card reader here let me take
an SD card will plug it into the bottom and see what we get
so we’ll plug that in should take a moment and it should show up on the left
there we go it says lumix from my camera and now we have access here and this
will allow you to access it not only in files but the app directly so they’ll
have to update their app whoever makes it but you can see my folders and files
here these are pictures I took before I can open them share them rotate edit
whatever I want and we have all the metadata here on the right so that’s
super helpful and finally we now have more power from the iPhone so we have a
dinner from the iPad we have a desktop version we have that and we can probably
use this as the main PC now with all those different apps we also have a
pretty interesting feature if you’re an enterprise user you can separate data
for work and home accounts and then if you’re into games this is pretty
exciting you can use a ps4 or an Xbox one as controller with this device so if
you want to use that for games maybe like minecraft things like that you can
do that now there is support for a few more things I never mentioned in my iOS
13 video and that is different languages so if we go here we’ve got language and
region and the languages are there’s 30 on the iPad but then also if you use
Siri wherever Siri went here Siri has new languages as well specifically for
English India so that’s nice and there’s quite a few updates for that so language
enhancements for India there’s a lot of different changes specifically on the
iPhone and iPad with iOS 13 so those are all the major features with iPad OS 13
if there’s anything new going forward of course I’ll cover that you can see
there’s a new find my app I covered that in my iOS 13 video there’s also
different changes all over the OS and as I discover them I’ll let you know in a
few video I’ll link this wallpaper in the
