Apple has just recently updated to the iPad iOS 10. The OS 10 launched last September before the launch of the macOS for MacBook Pro 2016 last October. They made their debut at the Apple Worldwide Developers Conference last June. There are features and functions of this new OS that users are not yet aware of because of the major changes made to the interface of the tablet.
Here are tips and tricks you need to know to help you get around with this new update:
Finding photos using your iPad iOS 10 has been made efficiently by the update. Photos are now able to recognize places and objects which will make it more easier to search images using a particular keyword. If you type in “trees”, the app will bring you to photos which have trees in them.
To use this function, follow these steps: turn on your iCloud Photo Library, head to Settings, then Photos & Camera to activate it.
You can now also swipe left on the iPad screen to use the camera even if it is locked.
Working With Siri
You can ask Siri to call or Facetime with someone, take a picture, schedule or cancel a meeting, define words, and many more. You can even ask what Siri can do by asking it “What can you do?”
Opening Pages In Split View
There is a good news for professionals and students alike because the iPad iOS 10 can now open two pages at once on the iPad screen. The Split View is activated by doing a long press on a link and then selecting “Open in Split View.” You can choose to switch the position of the tabs by swiping them.
You can now remove ads on Safari by just typing the button with four horizontal lines on the left side of the search tab. This leaves only the text and photos of the article, thus there will be no more distractions while you read.
Magnifying Small Text
Users can now activate the Magnifier feature on the iPad via Settings, then going to General and then to Accessibility. Press the Home button three times to zoom in on the small print.
Press the Home and Sleep/Wake buttons simultaneously to take a screenshot.
Scheduling Night Shift
Set the Night Shift to Sunset to Sunrise so that reading with a dimmer light than usual would be easier at night. Go to Settings and then to Display & Brightness to access this feature.
