HWM Singapore|August 2019

iPadOS is a spinoff of iOS that has features that allow users to better take advantage of the iPad’s large display and compute power. Fundamental to iPadOS are a bunch of new features that will give the iPad more capabilities and perhaps persuade more users to use the iPad as their primary computer.

ENHANCED MULTI-TASKING

Slide Over and Split View have been enhanced. You can now have multiple apps in Slide Over mode. To switch between these apps, simply swipe the bar at the bottom of the Slide Over window. You can also swipe up on the bottom bar to see all your apps that are opened in Slide Over mode — kind of like Mission Control on macOS. The Slide Over window can also be positioned on the left or right of the screen. This is useful especially if you need to quickly reply to someone in Messages or if you need to look up a file in the Files app.

Split View has been improved too, you can now have two windows of the same app — finally addressing one of the biggest limitations of multitasking on the iPad. This makes copying and moving files around in the Files app so much easier. It also makes it easy to compare all sorts of things like documents, images, and webpages. You can even swipe the bottom of your Split View screen or use four fingers to switch between the different combinations of Split View apps that you have opened.

What Should You Know About Cloud Security Solutions?

First, let’s explain exactly what the cloud is, and how it relates to digital security. Intuitively, some people believe that “cloud” storage means your data is being held in the air somehow, but this isn’t really the case. Instead, most cloud applications store data on physical servers, in datacentres around the globe. Your data is stored remotely, and provided to you upon request.
