Google has updated its set of productivity apps for iOS making them fully compatible with Apple’s latest hardware as well as software releases. With the latest update, you’ll get iPhone X support for Docs, Sheets, and Slides iOS apps.
Trillions of people hinge on Google’s Office-related apps such as Docs, Sheets, and Slides for their day-to-day tasks. However, iPhone and iPad users have been unable to make the most of such apps for the last few months. Even after the introduction of iOS 11 back in September, Google Docs, Sheets, and Slides didn’t get the support for the drag-and-drop feature. Come as a surprise, some of the most popular productivity apps have paid no heed to such a grave feature.
Ever since the launch of the iPhone X, the emulator has been available for developers. However, Google has yet been slow to support the new display size in many of its apps.
Today, the tech major fixes both of the above-mentioned issues with the latest updates to Google Docs, Google Sheets, as well as Google Slides. These updates come as a good news to users as Google catches their productivity suite up for new iPhones and iPads running iOS 11. iPhone X brings resolution optimization for its large display, while iOS 11 brings drag-and-drop support in multitasking for iPad users.
The toolbars at the top of the app now consider the TrueDepth camera ‘notch’ with the color of the app’s top bar containing the sections that display the time and status icons. In simple words, toolbars have been incorporated with the device’s usual form factor, so iPhone X owners will now be able to take advantage of the big 5.8-inch screen. Apart from iPhone X support for Docs and other apps, Google doesn’t mention any other visual changes.

However, the update brings a handful of other nifty features for iPad users as well. Now, you’ll be able to drag and drop links, images or text from other apps directly into either of these apps using the screen-splitting multi-app feature.
In addition to drag-and-drop and iPhone X support for Docs, Sheets, and Slides, Google mentions that the updates come with some bug fixes as well as performance enhancements.
You can download Google Docs, Google Sheets, and Google Slides from the App Store. All three apps are available for free to download. Google also released an update to its YouTube app to fix a battery drain issue on iPhone X.
