Apple Introduces Smarter Dictation on the iPad with iPadOS 16


Learn how to move between voice and touch, and add emojis using dictation on an iPad with iPadOS 16.

Apple introduced an all-new dictation experience on the iPad with iPadOS 16. You can now fluidly move between dictating with your voice and using keyboard. Just tap anywhere on your iPad’s virtual keyboard or a connected keyboard while you are dictating. The iPad will still listen to you and dictate what you are saying. Dictate will also add punctuation automatically, and you can add emojis just by speaking them. You can also dictate directly in the Messages app. Learn how the new dictate on the iPad in this video for iPadOS 16.
