Apple confirms iPadOS 16 delay, releases first iPadOS 16.1 beta

Apple today released the first beta of iPadOS 16.1 and also confirmed that iPadOS 16 will not release in September as originally expected.

We’ve been hearing for weeks now that Apple might delay iPadOS 16 and now it’s been made official.

TechCrunch With reports that iPadOS 16.0 will never actually ship, iPadOS 16.1 will arrive first in October. As a result, we can probably expect iOS 16.1 to be released in October as well.

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

Apple was reportedly struggling to get iPadOS 16 in a fit state for its expected release in September, thanks in no small way to Stage Manager proving problematic. The new multitasking system has come in for criticism from many, and Apple is said to be improving things with iPadOS 16.1.

The biggest update this time around is the ability to resurrect the Stage Manager side rail with a gesture when the feature is full screen. Other updates including 16.1 are the standard spate of beta bug updates

The news comes as Apple released the seventh beta of iOS 16, watchOS 9, and tvOS 16 to developers ahead of their September release.
