Sales of Apple’s tablets were actually not bad during the second quarter of this year, but as good as the iPhone maker’s iPad Pro offering has been, many people are still not convinced that tablets can be as good as computers. But Apple is cooking up some real cool things in its upcoming iOS 11 mobile operating system, and the company is promising that new features will make iPad Pro more powerful than ever.
Recently, Apple has uploaded a new series of videos on YouTube, and they basically give users an idea of how they might be able to take full advantage of the fresh features found on iOS 11. Which features exactly? Well, these include the Dock, Files app, multi-tasking, and Apple Pencil, among many others. Essentially, the new features are mostly designed to enhance productivity, especially for those who do not mind being productive using tablet devices.
A big part of what makes people capable of completing several tasks at once is the simple functionality of showing multiple functioning windows or apps at once on the display screen. It goes without saying that not all tablets are capable of doing this. The biggest reason is that you would need a vastly superior computing power in order to have all individual apps running.
Even with the new features on iOS 11, the iPad Pro might not be quite there yet, but it sure is getting close. As shown in Apple’s videos, a user can now drag the messages app out of the dock, and place it as a sort of separate panel on one side of the screen. Then the user can continue to work on another app and still be able to check any updates on the messages app in real time.
For people using the Files app, they will now be able to browse and launch files from iPad folders, and also from iCloud, Dropbox, and other cloud service apps. From there, users can either drag and drop, sort files, or even favorite, just as they can on a Mac. Other new capabilities brought to the iPad Pro courtesy of iOS 11 include scanning, signing, and sending of documents, using the Apple Pencil to mark up files, and dragging and dropping of image files.
The newest 10.5 inch iPad Pro is well equipped to handle all this processing. The tablet after all comes with a capable A10X processor, supported with 4 gigabytes of random access memory (RAM). And with Apple’s Pencil stylus and Smart Keyboard, the iPad Pro is transformed into something very close to a laptop.
