It’s been a big few months for the iPad. Apple didn’t just release a (mildly updated) iPad Pro, but a whole new accessory, the Magic Keyboard. In a surprise, iPadOS was updated to support pointer support—an upgrade many iPad users have been wanting for years, tossed into a minor mid-cycle software update.
But as Apple’s annual developer conference looms, what’s next for the iPad? Last year, Apple introduced the concept of iPadOS as a separate variation of iOS devoted just to the iPad. This year at WWDC, that bill comes due: Apple once could hide a lack of iPad updates inside a larger iOS release, but this year we’ll all be wondering what’s new in iPadOS.
