The best iOS 13.2 features that you can find in iPad

If you haven’t yet updated your iPad with latest iOS then its time to do so. The latest version is iOS 13.2, adds support for the iPhone 11’s Deep Fusion camera trick, and the new AirPods Pro, along with a handful of new emoji. Also once you have updated your iPad to the latest software make sure to try out the new dark mode, the gesture keyboard, and improvements made to Safari. There are various other features to explore in the latest update. Here are the following other best iOS 13.2 features that you can find in iPad

Optimize battery charging

A new feature in iOS 13 is intended to help prolong your battery’s life by learning your charging habits and preventing the battery from immediately charging to 100%. Optimized Battery Charging will keep your iPad’s battery at 80% for most of the night, finishing off the last 20% of charge right before your alarm goes off. To use the new features, go to settings > battery > battery health and turn it on.

Use the new Scroll Bar

When you’re scrolling a webpage in Safari, a new Scroll Bar shows up on the right side of the screen. Only instead of just being a handy way to see where you’re at on a page, you can now use it to scroll faster. You can try it out by starting to scroll on a page, then long-press on the scroll bar and drag it up or down.

Scan documents with ease in the Files app. 

The revamped Files app now lets you scan documents and save them directly to your device or cloud storage with little effort. Open the Files app, select the Browse tab, tap on the three-dot icon in the top-right corner, then Scan Documents. Hold your device over the document you want to scan, and it should automatically capture the page. You can scan multiple pages into one PDF file and then save to iCloud, or import it into another app once you’re done. 

iMessage search

Searching for past messages in the iMessage app has always been a bad experience. But you can now search for a single word or phrase, and results are almost instantly displayed. To try it, open the Messages app, swipe down to reveal the search field and type.

Use your voice to search Apple’s own apps

Anywhere you find a search bar in Apple’s own apps, you’ll notice there’s now a microphone on the far-right side. Tap on the new icon to enter your search query by voice, instead of having to type it out. Apps like Settings, Mail, Messages and the Today View are just a few examples of where you can find the new voice search option.

Share photos with or without location information

You can now strip location information from a photo when you share it directly from the Photos app. The new option means you can leave the photo geo tagged and you can view where it was captured, but when you share it across social media, email or messages, you can strip that information and keep any location information private. Select a photo you want to share in the Photos app then tap on Options at the top of the screen and turn off Location under the section labeled Include.

New volume indicator

The indicator in iOS 13 is much smaller and slides in from the side of your screen. As you adjust the volume, it shrinks down to just a small line, all but hiding as you find the right volume level. The “hidden” part here is that when that white bar shows up on your screen, you can use your finger to drag the volume up and down instead of having to use the physical volume buttons on the side of your iPad. 

iMessage and FaceTime gain Dual SIM support

iMessage and FaceTime now support for the second number when two SIM cards are being used.  Dual SIM support feature comes in handy for those who don’t want to carry separate personal and work phones, or for those who often travel internationally and need a data plan that’s less expensive than roaming fees. 

Delete apps from the update screen

After installing iOS 13, the next time you see an app you no longer need in the Updates list, swipe to the left across the listing and then tap Delete. With iOS 13 you can use a mouse to control your iPad .

Use a mouse to control your iPad

Now you can use a mouse or trackpad to navigate your tablet. You can assign shortcuts for specific tasks, such as going back to the home screen, in the new settings menu. Connect a mouse to your iPad then go to Settings > Accessibility> Touch > Assistive Touch (turn this on) > Pointing Devices to customize how it works. 

Remove app size limitations on cellular data

Now you have the option to remove App Store download limits. Like if you want to download a game that’s over a gigabyte in size on your cellular data plan.  Go to Settings > iTunes & App Store > App Downloads to get rid of the limit or have the App Store ask you if you want to download any apps over 200MB.

Safari has a download manager

You can now download files when using Safari on an iPad. The Download manager icon won’t show up unless you have an active download. Your download is automatically saved to a Downloads folder in your iCloud Drive account, which you can access in the Files app.

Long screenshots of websites

With iOS 13’s screenshot tool you can take a long screenshot. Open Safari and take one screenshot of any website and immediately tap on the thumbnail preview. Above the screenshot will be two options: Screen and Full Page. The feature works in Safari, Pages, Numbers, Keynote, Mail, or Apple Maps. Selecting Full Page will turn the entirety of the webpage you’re viewing into a PDF file that you can then crop, annotate and save to the Files app.

There will be more new features coming up in another update hopefully making things much easier for iPad users.
