01. Rearrange the items in your Today View

Today View is now a full screen app with a swipe able widget row, so you can easily rearrange the widgets. You can also add new widgets from the widget row, and remove them using the “x” button on the top right.

Swipe up or down to switch between widgets. Press and drag to rearrange your Today view. To change widgets, press and hold one until the Home screen turns into jiggly mode, ignoring the pop-up menu.

The bottom left corner of the home screen is where you will find the App Store app. Tap on the App Store icon and select Updates to check for any updates to your apps.

02. Change the size of the widget

When you long-press on some widgets, an Edit Widget option appears (or tap in jiggly mode). The Climate widget, for example, allows you to select a location. Size isn’t an option in macOS Big Sur, unlike in macOS Sierra.

Weather has been improved. Now it has two modes, which are light and dark. In light mode, it uses less battery and in dark mode, it uses more battery.

Tap the Add Widget button and choose the widget you want to add to your home screen.

03. Make a list of your shortcuts

Shortcuts are first introduced in iPad 13 and allow you to do a series of actions with only one tap. The Shortcuts app, where you maintain and create shortcuts, has been improved in iPad 14. Shortcuts are now organized by classification and file in a new column.

When editing an existing shortcut in a Split View or Slide Over, use the three dots (…) icon on the shortcut to quickly switch to a new editor view.

Long-press a shortcut and select the option to Add to Home Screen. Alternatively, you may add a Shortcuts widget to your Today view and choose which shortcuts to display within it.

04. Don’t talk to Siri if you don’t have to

Siri has been upgraded to appear as a person in the lower right corner of the screen. This gives you a more accurate representation of what you’re doing at any given time, and makes Siri a more natural part of your iPhone experience.

The Echo is very responsive when you tap on it, so you can easily control it by using your voice. It also has a useful voice control function that lets you change the volume and play music, for example. If Siri could speak to us, we would have an amazing time, and it would be a great way to start the day.

05. Understand how Apple manages your personal information

Safari’s Intelligent Tracking Prevention (ITP) prevents advertisers and other third parties from following you around the web. You can always turn off ITP by opening Settings > Privacy > Allow Apps to Request to Track. Safari now allows users to view the full list of third-party cookies on a webpage before allowing them to proceed.

There are two kinds of data that Safari uses, user data and device data. User data is data you enter into the app, such as your username or password. Device data is data that the app collects from the phone.

Hacks for Voice Control:

Even if you’re not used to chatting to Siri and giving voice commands, the following handy hacks will help you get into the habit and save you time typing.

06. Get Siri to Listen at All Times

Making calls, perusing the web, and many other tasks have gotten easier and faster since Siri debuted in 2011 with the iPad 4. The “Hey Siri” command debuted in iOS 8, with the caveat that your device must be plugged in to utilise it. Apple’s voice control, dubbed “Siri,” is actually pretty good. I find myself using it more than I use my phone’s voice recognition.

07. Make use of your favorite email and web browser

You can use any app you prefer to read and reply emails in the Messages app on iPad (and iOS). To change the default email app, go to Settings, tap General, then tap Default Apps and scroll down to see the app you want to switch to or from.

08. Use Scribble to write with your Apple Pencil

Scribble is a new skill that lets you draw on any surface. Scribble is the most secure handwriting recognition app on the market. You can even use your finger to draw and write without having to use a stylus.

With the new iOS 13 update, you can now use your Apple Pencil to create text with your voice. Just say the word and the text will appear on the screen. You can even draw in other languages. I’ve been using this with a Wacom Intuos4, and I have no complaints. It’s a great stylus for drawing.

The only downside to this pen is that it’s rather small. It’s ideal for short, handwritten notes, and even that’s not a bad thing. Also read about: iPad tips and tricks
