Apple is making the iPad more powerful with the new iPadOS, and a lot of these fresh features are all about productivity. The Files app is getting a huge upgrade, complete with zip and unzip features, local storage, a new Column View, folder-sharing through iCloud Drive and support for SMB file sharing.

Plus, for the first time on iPad, plug in a thumb drive or pop in an SD card and read files directly from either. You'll be able to import files directly into apps like Lightroom, as well.

With these changes, the iPad is becoming more useful for creatives and artists, particularly in the photo- and video-editing realm.
