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.

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.

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

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