iPadOS is still iOS, but now there are contextual menus, multiple windows for apps, a home screen that isn’t just a blown-up iPhone home screen, and a proper web browser. You can even plug in mice and USB hard drives.
Apple managed a fine balancing act here. If you update to iOS 13 and don’t really think about it, then everything (mostly) works the same, with just extra speed and polish. But if you want to dig in, you will find a whole new computer just below the surface.
MacDailyNews Take: What’s a computer? Apple’s iPad, iPhone, iPod touch, Apple Watch, Apple TV, AirPods, and Mac!
Upgrade to iPadOS 13.1 and check out desktop class Safari. It’s already great and will only get better!
