Apple will delay iPadOS 16 to October, according to Mark Gurman

Developers are going to need more time. As Mark Gurman learned today, Apple plans to postpone the release of iPadOS 16 to October in order to have time to tune it enough. It would be the first time that iOS and iPadOS are not released simultaneously. This would not affect the release of iOS 16, which is still scheduled for September.

Stage Manager on the iPad asks us for one more month

Gurman specifies from Bloomberg that the main culprit for this delay would be Stage Manager, the new iPadOS (and macOS) multi-window interface that seeks to improve the experience for those users who use the iPad Pro as if it were a laptop. It seems there has been enough feedback negative on the part of the developers who are testing the beta and it would have been decided to assign the work of improving it to more teams of people.

The source also claims that an October release of iPadOS 16 would also more closely coincide with the launch of new iPad Pros with the M2 chip, thus not causing any delays in the launch of those products. Of course, those of us who already have a compatible iPad will take another month to update.

I am personally one of those he prefers a delayed launch for as long as it takes rather than a hasty one that does not take care of the quality of the software or that abuses the work schedules of the developers, so it is time to have a little more patience. On a financial level, this should not affect too much either, because if the launch of the hardware is not postponed, the income agenda is maintained.
