Your iPad Is Updating To A New Look

Wednesday, June 14th, 2017 by | Filed Under: Uncategorized

The familiar iPad is getting an all-new look in iOS 11. Apple’s latest mobile operating system is expected this fall. Let’s check out the changes for the device that launched the tablet revolution.


One major change is the introduction of a file system, similar to the file manager you see in Android devices. The Files app allows you to search and organize files in one location. And not just your iPad files. You can check out files in apps, and on your iPhone, Mac, or iCloud service. You can also access cloud service like Dropbox.

The iPad now features a brand-new dock. It’s available from any screen. You can customize with your favorites apps and the the dock will also suggest apps based on what you used recently on your iPad as well as your iPhone or Mac.


Users can now open a second app from the dog and keep both apps active in a split view.

You’ll also now be able to drag and drop text, photos, and files between apps on the tablet.


And, yes Android and Windows tablet users, I know these features sound familiar.  But they are new to this device and I think a lot of iPad users will like them. It’s also going to make the iPad interface seem a lot more familiar to Android and Windows users.

    Come on Cynthia you know that iPads have always had a “file system” but now Apple will finally include a file system management app. In fact if I remember correctly from the time I had an iPhone I had a file management app from somr third party I downloaded from the app store. There were some limits on what it could access but it was there.
