iPadOS 15 Wishlist

    • The iPad and monitor act as two separate displays and they don’t just mirror each other
    • True clamshell mode
    • More then two apps in splits view on the external monitor
  • A Sign of Pro Apps (May see APIs that hint at pro apps, but they don’t get announced until the fall.)

  • Multi-Stream Audio Support (Important for recording podcasts and streaming)

  • Control Center Improvements

    • UI changes so it doesn’t blur the whole display
    • Allow third party utilities to live in there (kind of like Mac menu bar apps. Like the ability to create new tasks, calendar, etc.)
  • Multitasking Improvements

    • More ways of triggering multitasking (Example: Keyboard shortcut, shortcuts, some kind of launcher when triggering multitasking)
    • Ability to setup permanent pairs (Example: when I launch Things in full screen have it open fantastical in split view)
    • More then two apps in split view on the 12.9 inch iPad Pro

  • Fix notifications

    • Take better advantage of the lock screen and notification center screen space

Update (6/3/2021)
