iPadOS 18 launched at the 2024 WWDC event with a slew of new features, headlined by customization options and a dedicated calculator app tailored for iPad devices.

The dedicated calculator app for iPadOS offers an experience optimized for the iPad’s distinctive screen size. It supports users with features like writing mathematical notes using the Apple Pencil and solving equations directly on the screen in real time.

Additionally, the app supports performing arithmetic operations with variable inputs and updating results accordingly. In this update, the Notes app introduces “SmartScript,” enhancing handwritten note-taking with AI-driven improvements that clarify handwriting without altering its distinctive style.

iPadOS 18 also offers screen customization choices and app-specific customization options, with the Photos app receiving customization features similar to those introduced in the iOS 18 update.

The “Apple Intelligence” platform will be compatible with iPad devices featuring M1 chips or later iterations of Apple’s chips.
