As we used to, Apple releases major updates simultaneously for almost the entire range of devices running operating systems.
After several months of beta releases (no less than six), Apple has released a major update for all iPhone, iPad, Mac and Apple Watch owners, which comes with a few new features.
iOS 13.4 and iPadOS 13.4
We already know that since last year, Apple decided to develop an iOS-based operating system for iPad devices, but with a few specific features.
One of these is mouse and trackpad support for iPads updated to iPadOS 13.4. And even now there is this support, but the cursor was a rudimentary one and without great precision. With iPadOS 13.4, the cursor has become smaller and offers greater accuracy. It is recommended, of course, that an iPad be connected Magic Mouse or Magic Trackpad. In addition, iPadOS 13.4 supports Multi-Touch gestures for system navigation.
These new features bring the iPad tablet closer to what Apple has wanted for several years. The iPad should be a device that can replace the Mac for more and more operations.
Another feature, this time valid for both iOS, iPadOS and the latest version of MacOS, is iCloud Drive Folder Sharing.
Apple had announced this feature since the launch of iOS 13, but it has only now materialized. iCloud Drive Folder Sharing allows us to share with colleagues, friends, entire folders in iCloud Drive. It also offers the possibility to set limitations for each user with whom we shared the folder. We can choose to give access only for viewing or total access. Writing and deleting files from the shared folder.
Sharing can be done by live streaming or through a link that can be accessed from the browser.
Another important novelty is import Google Chrome accounts and passwords into the iCloud Keychain. Mac users use this "file" a lot save and synchronize passwords for online accounts between all the deviations on the same iCloud account.
