iOS 12 is clearly preparing the iPad for a future where Face ID replaces the Home button. Apple revamped the tablet’s gestures for the first version of the iOS 12 beta, bringing us an easy way to return to the Home screen and an iPhone X-style gesture to access the Control Center.
If you’re a long-time iPad users, these changes will seem a little jarring at first. You’ll soon get used them, though, and even learn to love them. The new Control Center gesture, in fact, is a lot better than the old one.
