Another new feature: the start-up animation. While it was until now displayed vertically, Apple finally chose to place it horizontally with iPadOS 14.5.

This is not the first time that Cupertino has chosen to modify this type of content. Not long ago, the most recent Macs were able to find the original ignition sound of previous models. In the meantime, see you next week for the iPadOS 14.5 public beta.
