Apple has recently announced significant updates to iPadOS 18, among which are new features, apps, and enhancements designed to improve the user’s interaction with the Apple Pencil, all of which are backed by Apple’s own Intelligence.

The noteworthy updates include a new feature called Universal Control which will support simultaneous interaction between iPad and Mac, improving the user experience. In addition, Apple Pencil users can look forward to a more streamlined experience with a new feature – the Quick Note.

The Swift Playground app, a major learning platform, will have an updated user interface making it easier for coding enthusiasts to create apps directly on their iPad. Apple’s unique intelligence is at the heart of these updates, making the experience seamless and user-friendly.

Apple has also increased its focus on privacy with the introduction of Mail Privacy Protection, preventing senders from knowing whether an email has been opened and hiding users’ IP addresses. Furthermore, Siri can now process requests offline, ensuring that no user information is sent to the cloud, enhancing privacy even further.

Another significant feature is Apple Intelligence, an advanced system that enhances user experience by understanding and generating language and images, conducting operations across applications and utilizing personal context. It learns from users’ interactions and behaviours, customizing each experience and providing personalized suggestions.
