iPadOS 14.0.1 – A Major Upgrade Recommended for iPad
iPadOS 14.0.1 is a recommended upgrade for newer iPads. (Check Compatibility)
iPadOS 14 is a major update to the iPad. The initial release was available on September 16. On September 24, Apple released a bug fix as IOS 14.0.1. This version is recommended. Our Senior Tech recommendation comes early. The marketplace is loving this release.
Here is a partial list of some of the new capabilities found in iPadOS 14 that we like:
- Homescreen Widgets – Get app information like weather and new on your home screen.
- App Library – Allows you to unclutter your homescreen(s).
- Scribble – allows you to write in data fields with the Apple Pencil. This is cool.
- Compact UI – For calls and Siri. They no longer take up the whole screen.
- Maps – cycling directions, EV charging spots and curated sight and restaurant recommendations
- Translate – Access real time spoken translations in 11 languages. I hope we get to travel again soon.
- Magnifier app – Using your iPad to magnify an object is now available on an app.
See Apple’s IPadOS Release Notes site for more details.
I found no issues with the update and the process took about 40 minutes. I also found no issues in the week following the release.
