All of the new features introduced in iOS 9.x (plus the iPad Pro) point to Apple’s intentions for the iPad, which still sells fairly well but has experienced a steady year-over-year sales slide for every quarter since early 2014. Like the iPhone, the iPad will continue to be a touch-first platform that assumes you’re using the touchscreen as the primary method of input, but it will continue to pick up more “computer-y” features that make better use of its larger screen and more powerful internal hardware.
With that in mind, here are a few iPad-specific feature requests for iOS 10, all of which balance the iPad’s traditional strengths and the needs of people more used to “traditional” desktop OSes.

I’ll be happy if they just put a damn number row on the keyboard. PLEASE, Apple? Even Swiftkey on iOS doesn’t have this feature, last time I checked.
