Apple confirms the delay of new iPadOS 16 Launch

Apple is about a month away from rolling out the stable version of iOS 16 to everyone, but that won't happen with iPadOS 16. An earlier rumor suggested that the company would delay the release of iPadOS 16 by a month. and this information has now been confirmed. .

iPadOS 16 won't be released next month

Apple has just released the iPadOS 16.1 beta update to developers and revealed that iPadOS 16 will be released after iOS 16. Basically, this means that Apple will release iPadOd 16.1 to the public instead of iPadOS. 16.0.

In a statement to TechCrunch, Apple said, “This is a particularly important year for iPadOS. As a clean platform with features built specifically for iPad, we have the flexibility to deliver iPadOS on our own schedule. This fall, iPadOS will ship after iOS, as version 16.1 in a free software update. "

However, it is not yet known when this will happen. Rumors hint at an October launch, possibly alongside macOS Ventura. Furthermore, new iPad models with the latest M2 chip are also expected to launch in the same month, and releasing iPadOS 16 around the same time seems like a good option.

The decision to release iPadOS 16 after iOS 16 mainly derived from problems with the old version's standout feature: Stage Manager. With various bugs, a confusing user interface, and only compatibility with iPad M1, this feature needs some improvement and as a result, the iPadOS 16 updates are delayed. This delay could also be to differentiate the two operating systems, much like how Apple treats iOS and macOS.

However, this can eventually cause problems for developers. Many people are developing joint apps for iOS 16 and iPadOS 16 and may need to delay the release to accommodate the release progress of both operating systems.

Meanwhile, Apple also introduced iOS 16 beta 7 to developers before releasing the stable version. It has also been suggested that the final development is now complete and that it is expected to be released next month, possibly September 7 when the new iPhone 14 series launches. We'll have all the official details on iOS 16 and iPadOS 16 soon. So stay tuned for that and share your thoughts on the delayed iPadOS 16 release in the comments section below.
