Apple 2019 WWDC Leak: Standalone ‘iPadOS’ is Coming

It looks like a major leak has come just ahead of Apple’s 2019 WWDC keynote, set to kick off at the top of the hour.

According to Steve Moser, he noted Apple’s Developer Program License Agreement from the ‘More Downloads’ section of the Apple developer website, has leaked details of what’s coming for the iPad, namely a standalone operating system called ‘iPadOS’.

9to5Mac was able to confirm Moser’s findings and the section where it references iPadOS:

“Apple Software” means Apple SDKs, iOS, watchOS, tvOS, iPadOS, and/or macOS, the Provisioning Profiles, FPS SDK, FPS Deployment Package, and any other software that Apple provides to You under the Program.”
