While iPadOS 14 gains most of the improvements to iOS 14, one thing that it’s conspicuously missing is the Home Screen changes. While you’ll still be able to line up widgets along the left-hand side of the screen (in landscape mode, that is), you can’t simply drop them anywhere else you like. There’s also no App Library to store those apps that you want to tuck away out of sight.
Instead, however, iPadOS 14 brings some massive Apple Pencil improvements, most notably Scribble, which will allow you to use the stylus to write by hand in any text field — even in fillable PDFs and web forms in Safari — as well as adding advanced gestures for things like deleting words by scratching them out and selecting text by circling it.
The Apple Pencil is also getting a big boost for note-taking, with Apple Notes now able to distinguish handwritten text from drawings and even copy and paste it separately or convert it to formatted text. Shape recognition has also been added to turn handwritten shapes into their perfect geometric representations.
