The iPadOS 16.1 beta is out now, and Apple has confirmed that it will skip the public release of iPadOS 16, according to the report. The company also said that the tablet operating system will be available to users after the release of iOS 16, essentially confirming earlier reports. that the Cupertino giant will delay its next major software update for the iPad. Rumor has it that the iOS 16.1 and iPadOS 16.1 updates will be released around the same time.
According to report According to TechCrunch, Apple has said it has the ability to release iPadOS on its own schedule. “This is a particularly important year for iPadOS. Since this is a proprietary platform with features specifically designed for iPad, we have the ability to release iPadOS on our own schedule. This fall, iPadOS will ship after iOS 16.1 as a free software update,” the company, led by Tim Cook, said in a statement.
The iPadOS 16 launch delay was first reported by Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman earlier this month. He stated that Apple may not release the latest versions of iOS and iPadOS at the same time and, in effect, delay a major iPad software update by about a month. Apple is expected to release iOS 16 during or shortly after the supposed launch of the iPhone 14 on September 7th.
Gurman said the software delay is, at least in part, due to an ambitious effort to overhaul the iPad’s multitasking capabilities. He also noted the disadvantages of simultaneously launching a major software update for a smartphone and tablet. He stated that the launch of iOS 16 and iPadOS 16 (or iPadOS 16.1, as reported above) might make sense for the Cupertino company, but those who use both iPhones and iPads may have to run into problems. with the smooth running of applications.
Both iOS 16 and iPadOS 16 were unveiled and discussed at length at this year’s WWDC. Apple released public betas of iPadOS 16, macOS Ventura, tvOS 16, and watchOS 9 in July. One of the most talked about features is the Stage Manager, which allows users to multi-task, resize windows, and switch between different application clusters.
