Shawn Blanc writing on The Sweet Setup:
One thing in particular that makes iOS and its apps so great is the simple and focused work environment it all provides. The iPad tends to be a very distraction-free device.
This is what the iPad is all about: being a distraction-free device. And this is why you won’t see Apple make the iPadOS be like the macOS with the windowing system or a Finder-like interface for the home screen. This was something that I was expecting from Apple to keep with iOS 13. Does it make the iPad a less capable device? Not at all.
