On the eve of the Apple Developer Conference 2017, many updates are expected in both software and hardware. However, in a long list of possibilities, the only sure thing is the presentation of iOS 11 and the new features available for iPhone and iPad. In this regard, the people at MacStories have created a video highlighting the new features that could come to the iPad as part of the upgrade.
This concept, designed by Sam Beckett, focuses primarily on the productivity features that could be brought to the iPad with iOS 11. After all, many have said that the iPad lacks the features and capabilities to make it a true PC replacement, as Apple has marketed it.

One of the options that stand out in this concept is “Drag and Drop” , this would appear when users drag content to the top of the screen, allowing them to save the content for later. For example, you can save a song, an image or an application to the shelf and quickly access it later from another application.
The current interface of this functionality simply allows users to scroll vertically through a long list of applications to find what they are looking for. This is one of the biggest problems with iOS on the iPad that users complain about.
This concept presents users with a grid of applications, similar to what they would see on their home screen, as well as integrated Spotlight for easy searching of applications. Recently used applications will also be displayed at the bottom of the tablet interface, which would actually be quite useful.
Finally, the concept represents several other design adjustments, better extension support in Safari, improvements in Notes and Control Center, and more.
Apple is expected to introduce iOS 11 next month at WWDC 2017, along with the rumored 10.5-inch iPad. It seems to be the perfect opportunity to unveil a dramatic iOS review for the iPad.
Is this the update you were waiting for?
