Finally in Spanish! More handwriting-to-digital features on iPad — 2022

Although thefunctions of transferring text from Apple Pencil to digitalThey were presented more than a year ago in iPadOS 14, the truth is that not all of them were available in Spanish. We recently saw how iPads configured in Spanish received part of the Scribble function that allows you to write with the Pencil anywhere in the system and transform it to digital, but now new functions are added that we will tell you about below.

Apple expands languages ​​for all features

As we said before, it was in iPadOS 14 where the Scribble functions were presented, which roughly allow you to use the official Apple Stylus to write a handwritten note and have it converted into digital text. It is also used to search the internet by writing by hand and even fill in forms and other text fields. It is even allowed to select and delete text by crossing it out with the Apple Pencil and all this was already in Spanish for a few weeks.

However there is other functions such as copy and paste text that is directly written by hand without having been transferred to digital format and that the iPad interprets it as if it were so. This is very useful for writing notes by hand and passing them to another digital text editor at a given time and giving it the format you want. Well, these features had not been available in Spanish and now they are.

This data has been found out first by MacRumors based on the information that Apple itself provides on its website. In this way it has been possible to know that, in addition to Spanish, there are four other new languages ​​to which these functions are added: French, German, Italian and Portuguese . Therefore, those who want to copy texts in this format and have one of these languages ​​on their Apple tablets will now be able to do so. Of course, we understand that it will be necessary for them to be updated at least to iPadOS 14.6, which is currently the latest version of the system available.

The Pencil is still the great supporter of the iPad

we already knowall the news of iPadOS 15and the truth is that it has been a very continuous and even disappointing version for those who expected much more powerful functions worthy of macOS based on having an iPad Pro 2021 with the same M1 chip as some Macs. This has caused many to move away the idea of ​​continuing to make the brand's tablets closer to the experience of using a computer, despite the fact that it already has great functions with which they can partially replace those desktop computers.

Apple Pencil on iPad

However, features like the Apple Pencil are what put iPads ahead of Macs in many user profiles. those who take many notes in their work or in the student field They will probably see an iPad with Apple Pencil and these aforementioned functions much more useful, being able to get more out of it than a Mac. The same happens in cases such as those of graphic designers that they find on the tablet and the App Store a good assortment of tools with which to enhance their creative work. Therefore, Apple continues to try to differentiate itself with this support for the official stylus and its functions and, at least in this sense, we believe that it does so correctly.
