As promised, Apple has finally rolled out new operating systems: iOS 16.1 and iPadOS 16.
Apple has finally released the latest versions of operating systems. Since the initial release of iPadOS 16.x was missed last month, the currently rolled out iOS 16.1 version is the first iteration of the operating system we’ve seen yet.
And with the release of iPadOS 16.1 alongside iOS 16.1, the version numbers for the company’s mobile operating systems are back in sync, just as rumors had predicted.
According to GSMArena, the new version of the iPad operating system includes Stage Manager, a redesigned multitasking interface (only on iPad Pro 12.9 3rd generation and newer, all iPad Pro 11″ models and the latest iPad Air).
It allows you to create overlapping windows of different sizes, drag and drop windows, and much more. It also automatically organizes apps and windows. Later this year, an update to the iPads M1 and M2 will ensure that Stage Manager is fully compatible with external displays up to 6K resolutions.
In addition, iPadOS offers 16 new Messages features (edit, unsend, and mark conversations as unread), a collection of Mail smart tools (cancel sending, schedule sending, alerts for forgetting to add a recipient or attachment, reminders to come back to a post and better search), support for iCloud Shared Photo Library, new security and collaboration features for Safari, and — surprise! – the Weather app is currently making its iPad debut.
In addition to numerous bug fixes, iOS 16.1 supports the following features: iCloud Shared Photo Library, Live activities from third-party apps on Dynamic Island and the lock screen on iPhone 14 Pro models, Fitness without Apple Watch, key sharing in Wallet , Clean energy charging and fitness without Apple Watch. It also supports Matter, a new standard for home connectivity.
