Install iPadOS 14.1 for Scribble
If you're an Apple Pencil user there are some great reasons to install iPadOS 14 in the near future.
The iPadOS 14 includes a new feature called Scribble which allows you to use the Pencil to write in any text field. Whatever you scribble down will then be automatically converted to typed text.
This comes in handy when replying to an iMessage from a friend or family member or searching for something in Safari.
Apple notes that all handwriting and conversion happens on the device itself which helps keep it private and secure.
In addition, data detectors now work with handwritten text to recognize phone numbers, dates, and addresses. In turn, that allows you to take actions like tapping a written number to make a call, adding an event directly to Calendar, or showing a location in Maps.
