This update introduces several new features, including Calculator with Math Notes and new handwriting tools in Notes. It also provides more ways to customize the Home Screen and Control Center. The update is designed with privacy in mind and integrates deeply into iPadOS 18, iOS 18, and macOS Sequoia.

Taking full advantage of Apple silicon and the Neural Engine, it makes everyday tasks simpler and faster. Math Notes can be accessed in the Notes app and Smart Script makes handwritten notes fluid, flexible, and easier to read while maintaining personal handwriting. It allows for quick writing without sacrificing legibility, smoothing, and straightening handwritten text in real time.

Editing handwritten text is now as simple as editing typed text. Additionally, a new carousel view presents daily highlights, and autoplaying content throughout the app brings libraries to life. Users can organize collections and include important items in the carousel view.

Users can also schedule messages to send later and react to messages with any emoji or sticker. The app provides a summary of articles, locations, or artists’ tracks directly from the page. Furthermore, iPadOS 18 introduces new privacy controls, allowing users to lock and hide apps, manage app access to specific contacts, and pair Bluetooth accessories without relying on other nearby devices.

The developer beta of iPadOS 18 is currently available, with a public beta set to be released next month. The full release will be a free update for eligible iPad models this fall.
