iPadOS 16 It should come in October this year, maybe along with Apple October eventduring this The event is now in doubt. What is not in doubt is that a file developer beta We’ll continue to bring you more updates in the meantime – including some keys theater manager updates.
according to Engadget (Opens in a new tab), Apple’s new window management system gets a wider version than initially expected. Originally, Stage Manager was for iPadOS It will only come to iPads powered by the M1 chipset. Apple’s reasoning was that iPads other than the M1 weren’t able to handle the computing required to run Stage Manager. This means that only the latest devices were eligible for the new feature even though iPadOS 16 has a wider install base – Much to the disappointment of some of our employees.
However, it seems that Apple has come up with a way to fetch a file favorite feature to a wider base – albeit not much wider. The feature only opens to devices running on A12X and A12Z Bionic chipsThey are the first and second generation of the 11-inch iPad Pro and the third and fourth generation of the 12.9-inch iPad Pro. So, unfortunately, those who have a traditional iPad are still out of luck.
Phase Manager on iPadOS 16
The theater director has been announced in WWDC This year as a new feature for iPadOS 16 and macOS Ventura. Multitasking lets your iPad feel like a computer by giving your iPad a desktop-like user interface. Stage Manager takes what you’re working on front and center, then moves other apps to the side of the screen. You can even run up to four resizable windows in the center of the screen.
You can also add four more windows using an external monitor. Unfortunately, this feature is changing. External rendering support is still available on iPad Pros running M1 and iPad Air for now, but older iPad pros who can now run Stage Manager in this new developer beta update do not get external rendering support.
In fact, there is more bad news. Apple is removing external display support entirely from iPadOS 16 in iPad OS 16.1 beta 5. The silver lining is that Apple says support for external display will eventually return, at least on some devices.
Unfortunately, these setbacks were all too familiar to Stage Manager on iPadOS 16. The app has been plagued by issues, criticism and even blamed for Apple’s delay to the operating system, which is now launching as iPad OS 16.1.
The good news is that by adding support for additional hardware and making external displays a major issue, Apple may finally narrow down the issues with Stage Manager on iPad OS 16.1. At the very least, it indicates that Stage Manager should not be the cause of any future delays for iPad OS 16.
