Gmail, Google Docs and Google Sheets Gain Support for 2018 iPad Pro Models

Google today updated its Gmail, Google Docs, and Google Sheets apps for iOS devices, introducing support for the new 11 and 12.9-inch iPad Pro models.

The update brings an optimized form factor that no longer features distracting black bars at the top and bottom of the display in portrait mode or at the sides in landscape mode. Following the update, the Gmail app takes up the entirety of the iPad's display, providing more detail on the screen at once, and the same goes for the Google Docs and Sheets apps.


Apple first introduced the new iPad Pro models in October 2018, so it's taken Google three months to add optimization for the tablets.

iOS is a joke in so many ways..
The way it handles screen resolutions should have been changed long time ago.
Now more than ever with all the screen sizes.

It’s Google’s apps which used non standard design.

Now they just need to update the app to support drag and drop (for files other than pictures), provide real support for iCloud Drive without having to go through the share sheet, and allow split screen. How these features are still not supported by now is beyond me.

I would just like to be able to attach something from my files.app rather than have photos launch every time.

thats one of the great point where apple misses out, and we the consumer and developers have to spend money time and effort to overcome their failure!
Tech press should jump on that really annoying issue

Google is a joke. There is no excuse for taking half a year to remove some black pixels.


apple is a joke - there is no excuse for not developing an os which support automatically differen screen sizes - every browser does nowadays! apple genereates efforts for millons of of people having to install crapy updates, only because apple changed a screen again from 10.5 to 11 which makes no sense at all

No.

He has a point. Material Design is a movement Google started for apps on the Android play store, not iOS. iOS requires a different design language. iOS only and Android only apps look radically different when done well. It's dual OS apps that look relatively the same and don't often adhere to common sense design that both OS developers push. That said, Google took their sweet time updating these.

That said, GMail on Android is terrible and their future version that incorporates Inbox design cues isn't all that great either.
