Apple announces iPadOS 17 for a more personal iPad

Apple has announced iPadOS 17, the next version of its tablet operating system, at WWDC 2023 . It will bring the enhanced personalization that Apple brought on the iPhone to the iPad, with new apps, and machine-learning-powered productivity features. 

Apple’s iPads have lagged behind iPhones in the customization space for a while now, and Apple is bridging that gap with support for widgets and tweakable lock screens in iPadOS 17. The new iPadOS will let you put widgets on the home screen, just like you can on iPhones. You’ll be able to see things like your to-do lists and tasks without tapping into the apps directly.
