    I'm really surprised not to see any thread on IOS13/iPad OS. There are so many things that will make my 201812.9 Pro experience so much better that I just kept hurrahing as it was spelled out (but so fast hard to keep up with). And then as people got hands on and tried different things my smile got broader and broader. Ability to use external drives has been on my list for a long time-I have photo files going back to 1998 on drives and it's the primary reason I use my MacBook Pro now. Files app being improved was high on list too--and two windows side by side of same app. I live in split screen, often with slide over.

    I have had iPads since week one of iPad one-when I was a long time Windows user with a custom built PC. I gradually moved to Apple and several years ago went all Apple-primarily because of the system and continuity. This is sort of like the culmination of the possibilities I thought I saw way back when-and there is lots to go system wise and iPad wise.

    So-bound to be others happy with this year's WWDC, especially for the iPad Pros.

    I'm sure many users will reach their goal of leaving their laptops home, since their iPads will finally have become functionally equivalent. I look forward to trying it on my Pro 9.7, though you 12.9 owners will likely see more benefit. Even Mini users will get useful features that don't involve screen real estate.

    How different will it be? First time owner/ foaming junkie here... I’ve just gotten really good at navigating the thing. What will I need to relearn? L

    A little bit of information:
    iPadOS Preview
    You might find the part about the new tools for the Apple Pencil quite interesting, I guess.

    The Public beta version will be released in July, it’s not available yet.

    Developers are allowed to test it, and it seems to be quite reliable.
    When the Public beta version is released, most of the bugs that might appear right now will be removed, so it’s quite safe to use it. So if you want to get the Public beta version, you’ll have to be patient.

    Otherwise, sign up as developer (fee required) and start using Developer beta:

    Yeah.....Figured as much in follow up research. I had just stumbled across an article on how to do it, and saved it for reference......Always wondered how those YouTube presenters got access to things of this sort. Just curious, as some of those guys seem to not be that brilliant as it were. Interesting nonetheless. Thanks... L

    I’ve just finished installing iPad OS 13 on my iPad Pro and the first thing I noticed is that the app icons on the home screens have shrunk. There’s now room for another row and a half. Instead of four rows of five there are now five rows of six.
