Install iPadOS 13 for Improvements to Photos
iPadOS 13 includes new Photo sharing options and Photo editing.
When you open a photo or another option to share, there are now suggestions based on your actions.
We use AirDrop a lot on our iPhones and iPads and on iOS 12 it can take anywhere from a few seconds to a minute for the AirDrop option to show up. When you're running iOS 13 or iPadOS 13, it's the top recommendation for photos.
There's also a new share sheet that offers faster access to apps you may way to open the item in and functions like copy and paste.
In addition, there are new Photo editing options and they make it easier to see what you are trying to do and to find changes that will make your photos look better.
Nearly all photo editing capabilities are now available for video editing. So if you like to edit your content on your iPad, trying iPadOS 13 beta might be worth it.
