Also, the compact Siri UI from iOS 14 will also be coming over to the iPadOS. That means iPads will now have notifications like incoming calls become smaller. Siri actions will now come in notification format, instead of a full-screen takeover. Phone calls from your iPhone will also be notified on your iPad via notifications.


iPadOS 14 search

Search on the iPad has also been redesigned to be universal. Search now works as an app launcher, it can even make calls, and search within apps like Mail and Files app. Simply put, it’s Spotlight from the Mac, basically.


iPadOS 14 scribble handwriting

Apple also announced that Handwriting on the iPad will be as powerful as typed text. The “Scribble” feature will be coming to the iPad and it basically lets you hand-write in any text-field and it will then be automatically converted into text. When it comes to shapes, just draw them and no matter how irregular they are, they’ll automatically transform into standard shapes.

When you double tap on written text, you can select and copy it, change it, and move it around, and etc. Scribble is capable of recognizing both English and Chinese for now, and it can also use data detectors to detect phone numbers and addresses.
