So you can imagine my excitement when I saw that the iPad Pros (and M1 Air) were getting basically exactly what I asked for! It would have been nice if they used the studioOS name too, but I'll still take it.

The beta is buggy and this new mode is a bit rough in its current form, but I think by the end of the summer this will be the best update to the iPad's software in years.
