Apple today uploaded several new tutorial videos designed to teach users about lesser-known features on the iPad Pro, including some features that were just introduced in iOS 11.

Apple's new videos cover copy and pasting across devices, retouching a photo using the Pixelmator app for iPad, and converting handwritten notes to text in the Notes app. Apple's Pixelmator tutorial video is the first time the company has released a tutorial for a third-party app.

Converting handwritten notes to text is a feature that was just introduced in iOS 11, but copy and pasting across devices is something that's been around since iOS 10. Pixelmator's retouching tools have also been available since before iOS 11, but the app will undoubtedly gain support for iOS 11 features like Drag and Drop.

Apple has released several tutorial-style videos in the past, teaching users how to use the camera features in the iPhone 7 and iOS 11 iPad Pro features like multi-tasking and using the new Dock.

Wherever my feet take me…
I kinda wish there was a more streamlined, easier way to convert handwriting to text. Just write, and maybe press a button in the toolbar. Have it be able to do that in any app like Mail, Pages, whatever. My dad's a writer, and he might like handwriting stuff rather than using a keyboard.

These videos instruct you on the little things I didn't even know you could do. Helpful turtorials, even if I don't utilize all the features.

The iPad in the videos is subtly more responsive than iPads in real life. They took out the pause after hitting the home button (almost like speedy homey on cydia), they made the share sheet open faster, the text text selection menu opens faster, and the app opening animation is quicker. If only Apple’s tutorial video folk were in charge of the UI animation speeds.
