Help the Macless: Apple’s iPadOS is a huge update that will enable more people to do without a Mac... or a PC

Still no multi user/account support though

I still can't understand why this isn't a feature on an iPad.

How many people have a house or family iPad - as in, one that everyone uses and shares? But they still don't allow multiple accounts to access the iPad. So if you don't want your family accessing your various accounts you need to sign out of everything every single time you use the iPad, rather than just signing out of your iPad account and leaving the device for someone else to use.

If they want these things to be a viable alternative to laptops, surely they need to incorporate one the most basic ways of accessing a laptop?
