Apple Shares New Series of How To Videos Focusing on iPad and iOS 11

Apple today uploaded several iPad Pro how to videos to its YouTube channel, focusing on new features that are coming to the iPad in iOS 11. Each video is just under a minute in length and all of the videos were made in the same style -- with two hands demonstrating new iPad functionality.

There are six how to videos in total, covering the following features: mark up with Apple Pencil, multitasking, document scanning and signing, file management, drag and drop, and the new dock.


iOS 11 brings a ton of new features to the iPad, essentially introducing a whole new user interface, so it's no surprise that Apple has designed a series of videos to show off its capabilities. Some of these features, like the ones that require Apple Pencil, are limited to the iPad Pro, but others will be available on a wider range of iPads.

Apple's new operating system update is currently available to developers and public beta testers, but should be launching to the public soon. We expect Apple to release the update in September alongside new iPhones.

For a complete overview of what's new for the iPad in iOS 11, make sure to check out our iOS 11 roundup.

Wow, marketing the five finger pinch on iPad. If that's not a sign that the home button isn't long for this world I don't know what is.

Here's how to sign a document on Linux:

1. Recompile your kernel
2. Install the scanner driver
3. Download a Windows driver for your scanner that will get emulated to Linux (this actually happens for WiFi)
4. Find out there's a bug with your scanner, buy a new one
5. Find a PDF program that does one thing well, but doesn't do another things well
6. Change your distro, because the package for that particular PDF software is outdated and you really don't know how to compile the source by hand
7. Finally sign the document
8. Save the document to /tmp
9. Open your mail App
10. Send the PDF in a tar.gz
11. Recipient doesn't know WTF is a .tar.gz
12. Succumb to .zip, and send it again.

iOS is slowly becoming more and more Mac-like. I can definitely see Apple migrating both platforms together and ditching intel. Maybe we'll get much faster speeds and more tech when that happens.

My 2016 Macbook feels just marginally faster than my 2012 Macbook. 4 years of processor updates and not much to show - perhaps only a 20-25% increase in speed??

Give me cursor support and the ability to hook up the iPad to an external monitor and I might consider ditching my MacBook. Still probably not though.
