(Pocket-lint) – Details about iPadOS 16 have leaked ahead of WWDC 2022.
Apple is due to hold its annual Worldwide Developers Conference in a few days. Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman says the Cupertino company will unveil a major software update for the iPad at this event. This update, iPadOS 16, will allow Apple’s tablets to function more like laptops. Specifically, the update will introduce a new multitasking interface with more resizing options. Currently, you can use apps in full screen or side-by-side in split view. The “Slide Over” feature also displays a narrower version of a third application.
But the next iPadOS update will make it easier to switch between apps and see which ones you have open.
Independent of Bloomberg’s report, Steve Troughton-Smith has spotted code that suggests Apple may allow fully resizable windows in iPadOS.
I know it’s best not to get excited about iPad improvements because we’ve been scalded so many times…
But WebKit just added a framework for “multitasking mode” on iOS that looks a lot like a system toggle to freely resize windows https://t.co/NBNGhHiaxB-
