Apple has dropped a series of how-to videos that help you get the most out of iPadOS. You can use them to master features like Slide Over, Split View, and brand-new gestures.

By now your iPad should be running iPadOS. But do you know how to use it?

There are lots of new features and improvements that have the potential to transform how your iPad works for you. But many of them are easy to miss if you don’t go looking for them.

Apple’s new how-to videos help you discover some of iPadOS’ most powerful features — and show you how to use them properly.

The first four videos, which follow the “Look what you can do with iPadOS” trailer, focus on Slide Over, Split View, editing text, and using QuickPath to type faster.

Most of the videos are short — the lengthiest is just one minute and 34 seconds — but they cram a lot in. They demonstrate how to use each feature, and why it’s so useful.

Apple has published similar how-to videos for iPhone and iPad users in the past. And it’s likely we’ll see more for iPadOS in the coming weeks as more and more users upgrade to it.

The videos are all published to the official Apple Support channel on YouTube. Here you will find lots of other tutorials on taking advantage of new features in iOS 13 for iPhone.
