Apple releases videos showing how to get things done with the iPad, iPad Pro and iOS 11
Apple released several videos today showing the Apple iPad, iPad Pro, and iOS 11. The first video shows how you can take advantage of the new capabilities of the dock. You can customize the dock by dragging more apps to it. It also will show the last app that you used on your tablet, on your iPhone and even on your Mac. Long pressing on an app will reveal the latest files you have worked on.

Another video shows you "How to effortlessly scan, sign, and send a document with iOS 11." This is done using the iPad Pro and iOS 11. That combination also teams up with an Apple Pencil in another video that shows you how to use the accessory to "mark stuff up." Sign documents, draw on photographs, and share the results via email or social media. Not only is that fun, but signing documents directly on your iPad Pro screen and emailing them can be a big time saver!

There is even a video that shows you how to handle multitasking using the Apple iPad and iOS 11, so that you can get more done. With the latest iOS build, Apple's tablets can save you plenty of time. The last two videos are also for the iPad. One shows you gestures that you can use on the iPad with iOS 11; the other shows you how to fly through your files using the next build of Apple's mobile OS.

We should see iOS 11 released some time next month, most likely around the same time that the new 2017 iPhone models are introduced. To check out the clips, click on the video slideshow below.

I don’t understand why most of these features aren’t available in the iPhone.

Split screen multitasking is the major iPad feature that I would love on my iPhone. I use it enough on my Galaxy devices ...I really hope it ends up being on the 7S/7S Plus/iPhone 8.

Must publish how-to videos of basic functionalities? So much for that user friendlines. Or is it so that File management and multitasking are hot new features on latest IOS? In 2017... OMG.

iOS 11 doesn't have true file management though. It's basically iCloud Drive 2.0

Samsung and others OEM's like LG release a lot video about how-to, but PA never post anything about it except if it's Apple. Clearly a paid promotion.

Mos def my favorite iOS device. Apple gives it the most love now, and I thoroughly enjoy my 12.9. The last update did leave it with a bug, that sometimes when I swipe on Facebook or safari, it's lags a little, then scrolls. Other than that, it's dope. Apple needs to being the multi tasking features (actual multi tasking) features and pencil support to the iPhone 8, the dock would be nice too. If so, I'll buy it.

I highly doubt that they'd bring Apple Pencil support to the iPhone 8. Plus, it would be inconvenient to bring something as big as a pencil just for a 5.5" screen. They could make something similar to the S-Pen though.

They'd sell way more of them, if they did, and you know how Apple is about money.
