Front-stage scheduling is a feature introduced in iPadOS 16 last year that allows iPad users to open multiple application windows at the same time, and also enables the iPad to work with an external display like a computer. With the launch of iPadOS 17, Apple has further improved the function of front-stage scheduling, which will add more flexibility about window size and position. The lock screen customization feature added to the iPhone in iOS 16 is now available in iPadOS 17, and users can add different widgets on the lock screen, such as weather, calendar, memos, etc., for quick viewing of information. In addition, iPadOS 17 will also introduce interactive widgets that can be placed on the home screen to provide more operating options. For example, users can play music, check stock quotes, or control smart home devices right from the home screen. In addition, iPadOS 17 will also support real-time activities, just like iOS, allowing users to share their screen, music or games during video calls. iPadOS 17 also has improvements for note-taking apps and PDF annotations. Craig Federighi, Apple's vice president of software, said: "Thanks to new machine learning models, iPadOS can recognize fields in PDFs." iPadOS 17 will provide new ways to organize, annotate, and collaborate on PDF files in real time. For many years, the health application was only available on the iPhone. In iPadOS 17, iPad users can also view their health data without the need for a mobile phone. The app has been redesigned to fit the larger display of the iPad, and all the health data already stored on the iPhone can be accessed through iCloud. Some of the new features in iOS 17 have also been added to iPadOS 17, such as the new Journal app and updates to the Find My app, a series of new features in the Messages app (such as automatic transcription of voice messages), the expansion of AirDrop and smart text input.
