iPad OS Finally Gets Calculator App

Tablets
Speaker 1: Apps are fundamental to the iPad experience in iPad OS 18. We are making them even better, starting with a new floating tab bar, which makes it easier to navigate to different parts of an app and keeps your content edge to edge. And apps like Apple tv, when you want to explore more, the tab bar morphs into the sidebar. If you use a specific tab, often you can customize the tab bar to keep your favorites with an easy reach. This redesigned experience works in apps [00:00:30] across the system. We've also made it easier to browse your documents and apps like pages, keynote numbers, and Swift Playgrounds giving each app a distinct new look. One of Share Place's best features is screen sharing. It's a great way to help friends and family from afar, and we're making it better in two ways. Now you can tap and draw on your screen to point out what they should do on theirs, and if you need to assist more directly, you can ask for permission [00:01:00] to remotely control their iPad or iPhone. Speaker 1: I hope that helps. That's right. We are bringing calculator to iPad. Yay. By leveraging what makes iPad so unique, it makes solving math easier than ever. It starts with the calculator that you know from iPhone updated to take advantage of the larger iPad display, along with some new tricks like history and unit conversions. [00:01:30] But the real magic of calculator on iPad is unlocked when you use it with your Apple Pencil. An iPad superpower, apple Pencil has changed the way you can take notes, draw and even design with iPad, and now it's changing the way you do math with a feature we call Math Notes. Let's see it in action with Jenny. Speaker 2: I'm so excited to show you the new Math Notes experience. I get to it by just tapping the new calculator button right here [00:02:00] and with my Apple pencil. I'll just start writing out expressions like I would on a piece of paper. As soon as I write an equal sign calculator immediately solves it for me and even shows me the results in handwriting like my own. When I make a change, the results update live and I can go beyond basic math with all of the same functions from the scientific calculator. I can save my math notes and come back to them later. [00:02:30] If I'm working on different things like here where I'm working on a budget for my team's upcoming table tennis tournament. Since I'm in math notes, I can sum these costs quickly by just drawing a line underneath them. It's so natural. Math notes are also really powerful when it comes to more complex math. Speaker 2: Here I have a physics problem my teammate and I are working on. We're calculating the maximum height of a table tennis ball when I hit it with different speeds and angles. [00:03:00] Math notes supports variables, so I've declared a few here and there's an expression below which uses these variables to help me calculate the height. What's powerful about variables is that if I change one, like the velocity of my shot, it'll change the related results too. And if I want to see how the speed impacts the height visually, I can, I'll just put Y equals in front of this equation. And now when I top the equal sun, [00:03:30] I have an option to create a graph. And if I'm curious how the height will be impacted by the angle, if I shot, I can hover my pencil over the angle and adjust it to see how it affects my graph in real time. It's an easy way to explore equations and math. And that's just a quick look at math notes and calculator back to Craig. Speaker 1: Math notes are perfect for working through a problem set or just tackling the math we run [00:04:00] into day to day. And this all works in notes too, when you need to crunch numbers. Notes has all the new math capabilities from calculator. Just as we've reimagined math on iPad, we've also re-imagined handwriting in notes with a new feature called Smarts Script Notes already has great handwriting. Features like the ability to select and copy your writing or even make it straighter. With Smarts Script, we're making handwriting your notes smoother than ever. It starts with improving [00:04:30] the appearance of your writing as you write. We use a powerful on-device machine learning model to recreate your handwriting style from your notes, which unlocks new capabilities. Just scribble your thoughts as fast as you have them. And Smart Script refines your handwriting as you go. It's still your own writing, but it looks smoother, straighter, and more legible. Smarts script further accelerates your writing flow by making handwriting just as flexible as type text. [00:05:00] Now you can just pace type text into a handwritten note and it will appear in your own style. Spellcheck works just as you would expect and fixes mistakes in line. When you decide you need to add to something you've already written, just tap and hold with your Apple pencil and your text will flow out of the way to create more space. If you want to erase something, you can just scratch it out. Speaker 1: Smarts Script makes your handwritten notes more effective, fluid and easier [00:05:30] to read. And with other enhancements to type notes, including collapsible sections, it's never been a better time to be a note taker. And that's iPad OS 18. Taking the distinct experience of iPad further with a big update to apps that makes navigating easier and more responsive and new ways to work that have been re-imagined with Apple Pencil.
