    When you want to present some settings on an iPad, you sometimes don't want it displayed full screen, but instead in a smaller window. This can be done by supplying the UIModalPresentationStyle enum value "popover" when presenting the view.

    https://developer.apple.com/documentation/uikit/uimodalpresentationstyle

    Example:

    NB: For me only "popover" is needed; not the other style choices.

    What is the advantage of this type of window vs a view ( smaller than window ) within a window ?

    It’s not a type but a style. It could be passed as an argument when opening the window.

    And I prefer to use default functionality instead of mimicking it.

    OK I see what you are saying ( especially after reading the Apple doc).
    All the styles being available would be very useful , popover in particular.
