Apple releases six new 'how to' iPad videos for iOS 11

Apple has relatively ignored the iPad in the last few major iOS updates. Most of the new features introduced in iOS 9 and iOS 10 were more geared towards iPhone owners. This makes sense due to slumping tablet sales, but the iPad has seen a bit of a resurgence in the last few months. There was a slight bump in iPad sales last quarter, and this year Apple refreshed its tablet lineup with a couple of updated models and a new 10-inch Pro version.

iOS 11 will also show the iPad some love featuring several new iPad-specific features, like improved multitasking and files.

On Thursday, Apple released six new videos highlighting the upcoming iPad features in iOS 11. The videos include:

  • How to harness the power of the new Dock
  • How to manage and fly through your files
  • How to get more things done more quickly with multitasking
  • How to effortlessly scan, sign, and send a document
  • How to mark stuff up with Apple Pencil
  • How to get the most out of your hands

Each video is about a minute long and explains what you will need (i.e. your hands, iPad, Apple Pencil) to perform a specific task in iOS 11 before demonstrating the new feature. You can watch the videos on Apple's YouTube channel or posted above and below.

Apple recently released a mini-movie starring Dwayne Johnson and Siri.

iOS 11 will be available sometime this fall.
