Another notable feature is a new universal search function. Simply start typing into the search bar, and it’ll allow you to launch apps or documents instantly. You can also search the web this way; type a few characters and it’ll automatically bring up the top hit result in Safari.
There’s also an all-new sidebar, that brings an additional navigation function to many core Apple apps. Apple showed off this new sidebar in apps like Photos, where you can drag a photo to the sidebar to move it to an album, for example. This sidebar will also appear in Notes and Files, where there’ll also be a streamlined toolbar and additional controls at the top. iPadOS also brings the ability to launch rich album art and lyrics in Music.
On top of that, Siri results will now appear on the bottom right of the screen. Incoming calls will also no longer take up the entire screen; now they’ll appear as minimized notifications at the top.
