iOS 17 and iPadOS 17 are here and include support for widgets and shortcuts in a bunch of new places! Scan documents faster by launching directly into the document scanner from widgets on your Home Screen, Lock Screen and even StandBy. You can also run the Scan & OCR Document shortcut from the Shortcuts app, through Spotlight search or by asking Siri. Update your devices and download Highlights 2023.2 to take full advantage of the new features.
Highlights has always strived to be a desktop-class app for the iPad, but with the improvements in iPadOS 16 we have pushed it to a whole new level. Customizable toolbars and document menus make powerful actions easily accessible. The new thumbnail sidebar and inline search makes navigating your documents a breeze. And Stage Manager lets you multitask like never before. Update to iPadOS 16 and Highlights 2022.6 to take your productivity to the next level.
Highlights has been redesigned to take full advantage of the new features of iOS 16. The toolbars have been optimized for reachability and more functionality is exposed through modern menus. Update to Highlights 2022.5 to take full advantage of the new features.
iOS and iPadOS 15 is here and Highlights is ready. Features like Quick Note and Live Text alone makes this a worthy upgrade, but there are lots of usability improvements, especially for iPad users. Update to Highlights 2021.2 to take full advantage of the new features.
Highlights 2021.1.2 brings some important changes to keyboard shortcuts on iPadOS. These features bring keyboard shortcuts closer to parity with macOS in both terms of functionality and discoverability, but some of the changes will manifest first in the fall with the release of iPadOS 15.
macOS 11 Big Sur is here with a new design language and support for a new generation of Macs based on Apple Silicon. We used this occasion to redesign Highlights to make it feel right at home on Big Sur, but also bring some of this thinking to iOS and iPadOS.
iOS and iPadOS 14 is here and so is a big new update for Highlights with a highly requested feature: color palettes. With color palettes you can change the colors used when annotating PDFs. You can also show the annotation colors in your notes - giving them a whole new look.
Say hello to the all new Highlights - now available on iPhone, iPad and Mac. Three new apps being released at once. You can download them all and start using them for free today from the App Store:
Highlights has not seen any updates in the last year and many of you have been rightfully concerned about the future of this app. However, if you came here looking for bad news, I will have to disappoint you. Highlights is live and well with several exciting things on the horizon, none of them being a sunset.
