Editor's note: The iPadOS 16 public beta is now accessible, allowing daring individuals to install an early, incomplete version and test it out for themselves. We did just that, so read our iPadOS 16 review for our thoughts on the beta and don't forget to check out our tutorial on how to download the beta! Our initial story is as follows:

Apple introduced the new features of iPadOS 16 during its annual WWDC event in June. The updates this time focus on better multitasking and borrow heavily from new features coming to iOS 16 and macOS 13 (aka macOS Ventura).

Collaboration is one of the iPad's newest features, allowing you to add people to a real-time video chat and connect with them. With the new iPadOS 16 Freeform feature, you and others can write notes or draw on a digital whiteboard, while Stage Manager makes working with an attached external monitor even easier.

The idea of ​​making the iPad a desktop replacement may be realized with the help of these new features, which look promising.

Here's a closer look at every new feature in iPadOS 16.

iPadOS 16 overview

Apple has confirmed that iPadOS 16 will be released in October 2022, after iOS 16.

Stage Manager access has been expanded to four more iPad Pro models in the latest iPadOS 16.1 beta.

Work in groups more easily with new multitasking features.

It's easy to create and collaborate with collaboration software.

Freeform is a collaborative virtual whiteboard for teams.

Stage Manager makes it easy to integrate an external monitor.

iPadOS 16 release date and beta

iPadOS 16 will begin being released in October 2022, one month later than expected. The delay is noteworthy because it's the first time in a very long time that Apple has been in a hurry to release important operating system updates for its iPhones and iPads. For many years, the public has been able to download new versions of iOS, iPadOS, and macOS during the month of September. However, in 2022, there may be some time between the release of iOS 16 in September and iPadOS 16 later this fall.

During WWDC, the iPadOS 16 developer beta was made available. On July 11, Apple made the first public beta available; However, we strongly advise you to backup your Mac before doing so.

iPadOS 16: Supported devices and compatibility

Apple determines that the software update is compatible with iPad (5th generation and later), iPad mini (5th generation and later), iPad Air (3rd generation and later), and all iPad Pro models in the exact version of its announcement of iPadOS 16. No longer updated Support for the second generation iPad Air and the fourth generation iPad Mini with the new update, according to iPadOS 15 compatibility.

It is also important to keep in mind that not every iPad running iPadOS 16 will be able to support all the features. We expect some functions to require an M1-powered tablet. When we use the trial version, those details will become clearer.

New features in iPad OS 16

A number of new multitasking features are included in iPadOS 16.

Collaboration is a new feature that lets you add and connect with others on programs like Safari, the iWork suite, and even third-party apps. With a group, you can exchange documents, photos, and videos. Group members can also edit and comment on these files. Everyone entering a collaboration session who is currently modifying a document will be visible to you.

The ability to collaborate extends to other apps, including Messages, where you can share content in a group discussion from third-party apps as well as Files, Keynote, Numbers, Pages, Notes, and Safari. Everyone has access to this information if it's shared, and you can view updates and changes at the top of the Messages window. (Like iOS 16, iPadOS 16 adds the ability for messaging app users to edit and recall messages, mark conversations as unread, and watch movies via SharePlay.)

Freeform is a different feature that will be released soon. Users can handle virtual whiteboard with this software. According to Apple, this functionality is great for collaboration and idea generation. On the aforementioned whiteboard, you can write notes or even draw with the Apple Pencil. With the whiteboard tool, you can also drop photos, videos, and documents into a particular group.

Stage Manager from macOS Ventura also comes to iPadOS 16. Stage Manager features a visual on-screen dock that makes it easy to access apps, and you can resize windows just as you would on a Mac (or PC). Open applications can be toggled, and useless programs can be pushed to the side.

The ability to connect your iPad to an external display so that you can effectively use two monitors is Stage Manager's best feature. Eight apps can run simultaneously on your iPad and external display when groups of three or four windows are created on each device. Presentations will undoubtedly benefit from this feature.

Stage Manager was initially only accessible on iPads running the M1 software. Apple explained why the feature was only available on the iPad M1 devices, but it was still frustrating. This capability is now added to four earlier iPad Pro models in the latest iPadOS 16.1 developer beta.

While this is great news, unfortunately the Stage Manager will also be taking a cut. Stage Manager will not support external displays on these four older iPads. Additionally, Stage Manager's external display functionality is removed from M1-based iPads in iPad OS 16.1 beta 5. We'll eventually restore the feature, according to Apple.

iPadOS 16: Additional updates

Since the beginning of time, iPads have been devoid of the Weather app; However, iPadOS 16 brings it back to Apple's tablet. (App developers will be able to integrate weather data into their software thanks to the developer API.)

Some of the new features coming to Mail seem to have been carried over directly from the Gmail playbook. New gadgets allow you to schedule emails, resurface emails with a reminder function for later, and cancel a message's delivery before it reaches the recipient's inbox. Apple claims that Mail.com's search functionality will also be improved.

Apple is promising iPad users with desktop-class apps that will include capabilities such as improved find and replace functionality and consistent undo/redo experiences. In files, you can also see folder sizes. To make your iPad more like a desktop experience, take a look at these additional steps.

A great addition for professionals using iPad as a second display is Reference Mode, which helps the 12.9-inch variant of the iPad Pro match color requirements in workflows such as review, approval, color grading, and overlay. On iPads with the M1 processor, Display Zoom helps you increase the pixel density of the screen to see more in various applications, and Virtual Memory Swap allows you to increase the amount of accessible memory.

The iPad receives several iOS 16 improvements as well, including on-device dictation, live text support for video, the My Sports area in Apple News with scores and features, and more. To make it easier to check your friends' games and achievements, Game Center gets an activity area on the dashboard.

iOS 16 brings several new features to Safari as well, some of which are common to iPadOS 16.

iPad OS 16 overview

The release of iPadOS 16 should enhance the desktop experience on iPads. Many people have long hoped for this, and Apple seems to be living up to their expectations. As mentioned earlier, many people use iPads exclusively or exclusively for work. Plus, those multitasking capabilities should make better use of the M1 chip inside the iPad Pro and iPad Air.

Although iPadOS 16 is promising, more testing is needed to determine how these new functions will perform in practical settings. Hopefully, the launch of development and public betas won't take too long.
