I apologize if this has been asked before, though I did look and could not find it.

Basically, exactly what the topic says. Is iPadOS a truly new OS that will need its own version of apps to run them (and therefore I will avoid upgrading) or is iPadOS really just a new UI for iOS on iPad and all apps currently working on it (including Scrivener) will continue to do so?

Thanks!

It is just a branding name, and a way for Apple to indicate that updates will happen more frequently. I am running the beta and so far haven't run into any issues with Scrivener.

Whereas I get a crash as soon as Dropbox tries to sync, rendering Scrivener unusable on the current beta. Any idea how yours is working, Brammy?

Sorry, I don't have any more input, but I'd like to hear updates about this.
I was looking forward to the public beta to finally be able to use 2 windows of Scrivener on iPad, but I'm too afraid to loose the ability to work on my iPad, which has become my primary work station, to take the leap of faith...

Well, it's not quite Apple's "official" thing, but Scrivener has been doing multiple panes of content for years. Run a search for "Quick Reference" in your tutorial to read up on it.
