iPadOS 15: An awesome disappointment

The Weekender
iPadOS just keeps getting better – and more disappointing.
In his bittersweet review of the brand-new iPad operating system, our writer Killian Bell lays out all the ways Apple continues to raise the bar for tablet software. But he also laments the fact that iPadOS 15 still doesn’t give power users all the things they desperately need.
Also this week, we’ve got the first buzzy looks at iPhone 13 and iPad mini, as well as reviews of everything new on Apple TV+. (If you’re a sci-fi fan, you don’t want to miss Foundation.)
Enjoy your weekend!
