• Apple has announced new features that should enhance the writing experience on iPad.
  • Smart Script introduces several editing tools, including the ability to tidy up a user’s handwriting in real time.
  • Apple Intelligence also powers image generation and summarization tools.

While plenty of new features are heading to iPhones via iOS 18, Apple didn’t forget about iPadOS 18. At WWDC on Monday, the company announced several new features for its slate and the Apple Pencil stylus, which includes AI-powered tools that enhance written notes.

The most impressive feature is Smart Script, which can learn and identify a user’s handwriting and use this information to tidy up content where required. Apple says this feature “allows users to write quickly without sacrificing legibility.”
