Apple just announced iPadOS 16, its latest software for iPads. It packs in new features for “pro” users who like to do a lot of things at the same time.

  • The new software lets two people easily collaborate on iPads. Users can message one another or start a FaceTime call to discuss what they’re working on. They can also see which tabs users are looking at in the tabs bar.
  • Apple is introducing a new app called Freeform later this year. It’s a collaborative whiteboard app that lets people work on a document at the same time. It seems a lot like what’s been available in Microsoft Office and Google Docs for years.

  • Apple is rolling out Stage Manager, which will let you overlay apps and change window sizes. This means you should be able to see more of your open apps at the same time, although it falls short of being able to have lots of open windows at once as you might on a Mac or Windows computer. It’s clear Apple is still trying to keep iPad software functions very separate from Mac’s.
  • You’ll be able to do more when you attach an external monitor to an iPad running on an M1 chip. Apple said you’ll be able to move your mouse and keyboard on to the external display and interact with more apps at the same time.
