Revolutionizing Document Collaboration: iPad OS 17’s Live PDFs vs. Google Docs

Whether they’re completing paperwork at the doctor’s office or studying for a chemistry exam, Apple is aware that iPad users frequently deal with PDF files. Therefore, it only seems sense that Apple would include functionality in iPad OS 17 that would enhance dealing with PDFs on the tablet.

For those without simple access to Adobe Acrobat, iPad OS 17’s machine learning technology can recognize fields in a PDF so that you may swiftly fill them out. This works with images of papers that you scan and store on your iPad.


The Notes app has some of the most fascinating PDF improvements. Multiple PDFs may be accessed within a single note, and if you’re working together with another iPad OS 17 user, modifications, Apple Pencil notes, or other changes can be made that instantly update on all participating devices. The user interface looks to be comparable to working on a homework project with a classmate in Google Docs, with the exception that the Apple Pencil’s capabilities may be more advantageous for annotating papers or taking notes with colleagues or classmates.

Live collaboration is a function that may be used remotely. Additionally, it may be utilized with a FaceTime call.
