Apple may now launch iPadOS 16 in October

MacRumors reports that Apple is developing a new multitasking feature called Stage Manager for the iPad, with an option designed to provide a more Mac-like multi-window multitasking experience, citing Bloomberg.

The delayed launch of iPadOS 16 is said to be partly due to the implementation of Stage Manager, as Apple is still working on the bugs. The delayed launch would allow Apple more time to finish iOS 16, and then the company could shift to working on iPadOS 16.

Stage Manager is limited to the M1 iPad Pro and iPad Air models, and is not available on older iPads, which has caused some controversy. Apple says it’s impossible to provide an acceptable multitasking experience on the older iPad, hence the limitation.

Since Apple split iPadOS into its own operating system in 2019, the iPadOS release has largely been tied to the iOS release, with software updates for the iPhone and iPad being launched simultaneously.

The delayed launch of iPadOS 16 will mark a departure from Apple’s standard release plans. The report says that the introduction of iPadOS 16 in October means the time will come for the software to launch closer to the new iPads.

The tech giant is developing a new M2 version of the iPad Pro with the M2 chip, and an entry-level iPad with a USB-C port, both expected to debut later this year.
