Apple Confirms iPadOS Update Will Be Released After iOS 16

Apple Confirms iPadOS Update Will Be Released After iOS 16

On the heels of a report earlier this month by Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman that Apple would delay the release of iPadOS until October, the company has confirmed that the OS will follow the release of iOS, although it hasn’t said exactly when. In a statement to TechCrunch today, Apple said:

This is an especially big year for iPadOS. As its own platform with features specifically designed for iPad, we have the flexibility to deliver iPadOS on its own schedule. This Fall, iPadOS will ship after iOS, as version 16.1 in a free software update.

That means version 16.1 will be the first public release of iPadOS, skipping version 16.0 entirely.

The issues with the iPadOS 16 betas, in particular Stage Manager, are well documented. The feature has a lot of promise, but as Federico covered in his iPadOS preview and as we’ve discussed on AppStories, there are still significant bugs and design inconsistencies. Hopefully, the extra development time will allow Apple to ship a more refined version of Stage Manager that delivers on the vision that the company clearly has for the feature.

Apple Gives the iPad Air an M1 Makeover

The new iPad Air starts at $599; cellular models now support 5G.

I started out covering tech policy in Washington, D.C. for The National Journal’s Technology Daily, where my beat included state-level tech news and all the congressional hearings and FCC meetings I could handle. After a move to New York City, I covered Wall Street trading tech at Incisive Media before switching gears to consumer tech and PCMag. I now lead PCMag’s news coverage and manage our how-to content.

Apple today gave its slim iPad Air an M1 upgrade, which it says delivers up to 60% faster performance over the 2020 model.

The 2022 iPad Air also delivers twice the graphics peformance, according to Apple, which unveiled its new tablet today alongside a revamped iPhone SE and Mac lineup. The Apple-made M1 chip first made its appearance in 2020 MacBooks, and while Apple has since released the M1 Pro and M1 Max, the M1 should offer plenty of power for tablet users upgrading from an A14.

The new iPad Air features an ultra-wide 12MP front camera and 12MP wide camera on the back. It supports Center Stage, which will keep you centered in the frame during a FaceTime chat or zoom in and out as people come on camera.

The iPad Air sports a 10.9-inch Liquid Retina display with a Touch ID button built into the tablet’s top button for authentication.

Like the new iPhone SE, the cellular version of the new iPad Air supports 5G. There’s also eSim and Wi-Fi 6 support, Apple says, while the USB-C port is up to 2x faster than the previous generation, allowing for connections to accessories like external storage and displays with up to 6K resolution.

Creative types with a second-gen Apple Pencil can use it with the new iPad Air, which also works with Apple’s Magic Keyboard, Smart Keyboard Folio, and Smart Folio covers.
