Ipados 16 Rollout By Apple Until October

(MENAFN- Khaama Press)

Apple to delay the release of iPadOS 16 by about a month to give developers time to iron out bugs, Bloomberg reported on Wednesday. 

If accurate, this would mark the first time in years that iPadOS and iOS haven't been launched in tandem. The latest versions of the operating systems were announced earlier this year at WWDC.

The new iPadOS 16 update includes Stage Manager, a feature that allows users of the newest M1 iPad Pro to multitask, resize windows and drag multiple apps at a time. But according to Bloomberg, people who downloaded the available beta version of iPadOS 16 found Stage Manager to be buggy with a confusing interface. 

The delay could mean the updated operating system will launch alongside the rumored M2 iPad Pro, which could be coming in the fall.

During beta testing, the system has drawn criticism from some developers and users for its bugs, a confusing interface and lack of compatibility with most iPads. Staggering the release schedule will also allow Apple to put more engineering resources into completing iOS 16, the software update that will come included with the iPhone 14 in September.

The change also would bring the iPadOS 16 release closer to the launch of new iPad hardware. The company is planning an updated iPad Pro with an M2 chip, along with a faster entry-level iPad with a USB-C port, Bloomberg has reported .

An Apple spokeswoman declined to comment on the plans, which could change as the Cupertino, California-based company gets closer to its fall product launch cycle.
