The Morning After: Apple May Unveil Major iPad Multitasking Update at WWDC | Engadget

I started testing the waters by writing this newsletter (and several other stories) on an iPad, with keyboard folio, of course. And it works surprisingly well, if not perfectly. Apple’s journey to plunge its tablets into the world of laptops has it took a whilebut it is almost there

Now a report from Bloomberg‘s Mark Gurman suggests that Apple will push iPadOS even further in version 16, with some software changes apparently pushing the device further in that direction.

Gurman’s sources say iPadOS 16 is a redesigned multitasking interface, including more resizing options. Currently, you can run apps full screen or side by side in Split View. The Slide Over feature also allows you to add a narrower version of a third-party app. The next version of iPadOS will make it easier to switch between apps and see which ones you have open. That might even include pretty customizable windows in iPadOS, which sounds like a dull, boring upgrade, but it’s exactly what I need when switching between web browsers, Google Docs, and Slack windows. Please, give me what I want, WWDC.
