iPadOS 13: News, Features, and Release Date

After the release of the new iPadOS (or iOS 13 for iPad), I was finally convinced myself to purchase another iPad Pro (12.9″) this summer for use later in the fall at school and replace my computer. I plan on using my iPad at its max as a notebook replacement and perhaps a laptop alternative.

In this video, I list 10 reasons why the new iPadOS encouraged me to choose an iPad Pro this early in the year for all my school work. These features helped me to differentiate the iPad from the current iPhone X, XS, and even XS Max lineup.

Mouse Support on iPadOS 13?

One of the new rumored for iOS 13 is the support for mouse input as an Accessibility option, and it is just beautiful. While Apple did not mention Mouse Support on stage, iPadOS 13 does indeed have support for mouse input as an AssistiveTouch option.


If you chose to download the new iPadOS 13 betas, please help Apple improve the software before it is released to the millions of iPad users later this year around the world.

If you are tired of using iPads buggy software or if you’re sick of hearing complaints from others, think about trying the beta version.

After installing the beta, you will need to report whatever you see to Apple by using its bug reporting tools. By doing this, company engineers can get to work and fix it ahead of the update’s being released this fall.

Your testing could also help Apple squash an annoying bug or any nasty performance issue.
