The latest OS for iPad 'iPad OS 15' has been announced, and it has evolved to be easier to use by adding widgets and strengthening multitasking.
In WWDC 2021 , 'iPadOS 15 ', the latest version of the OS for iPad, was announced. The multitasking function of iPadOS has been further enhanced, and widgets can be freely placed on the home screen like iOS.
'IPad OS 15', the OS for iPad, makes it possible to operate the iPad more sophisticatedly and intuitively than ever before.
You will be able to place widgets on the home screen.
In addition, the app library installed in iOS can now be used on the iPad.
There will also be major updates to another important part of the iPad OS.
That is 'multitasking'.
When you tap it, a multitasking menu will appear.
When you tap the Split View icon ...
Two apps can be displayed at the same time.

For example, you can embed a Safari page link in a memo.
You can also switch the contents of Quick Memo by swiping.
Quick Memo can be created on iPadOS and macOS, and can also be opened and edited from iOS.
And the translation function of iOS. With iOS translations, users have already translated billions of times.
On iPadOS, you can use Split View to translate right next to a document.
In addition, automatic translation enables real-time translation of conversational voice.
You can also use translation throughout the system. In other words, all the text displayed on the iPad will be able to be translated.
This system-wide translation can be used not only on iPad OS but also on iOS and macOS.

Anyone with an iPad will be able to easily develop applications.
iPadOS 15 has evolved more than ever.
And about 'privacy' that Apple attaches great importance to.
The privacy of the mail app is enhanced.

A report on 'what third-party trackers your application is connected to'
And Siri, a voice conversation AI.
The increased power of the Neural Engine enables speech recognition on the device.

Siri will be able to process various voice commands even in an offline environment.
Next, about Apple's cloud service 'iCloud'.

Traffic from the device is reliably encrypted without compromising performance.
'Hide My Email' is a function that allows you to hide your actual email address when you enter your email address in a form on the web.
It hides the user's email address by creating a unique and random email address and forwarding the email sent to that email address to the original email address.
This feature is built into Safari and iCloud settings as well as email.
You can set as many email addresses as you need and delete them at any time to manage them.
iCloud + also includes support for 'HomeKit Secure Video'.

These features are offered at the same low price as they are today.
About new features related to 'health'.
