Apple to delay the launch of iPadOS 16 until October while it works out bugs in multitasking feature

Apple will reportedly delay the launch of its updated iPad software to give it more time to improve on its new multitasking feature.

This means that iPadOS 16 won’t be released until October – a month after the expected release of the new iPhone operating system, iOS 16.

Historically, the tech giant released new operating systems for iPhone and iPad at the same time in September.

However, according to BloombergApple is pushing back the iPadOS 16 launch date as it’s still working on the tablet’s new “Stage Manager” feature.

Announced at the Worldwide Developers Conference 2022 (WWDC 2022), Stage Manager allows users to easily navigate between different applications and tasks.

Open windows are listed on the left side of the screen in order of recency, allowing users to organize their desktop and have an overview of what’s running.

However, unnamed sources revealed bugs were revealed during beta testing, as well as a lack of compatibility with most iPads and complaints that the interface is “confusing.”

Rumor has it that Apple is delaying the launch of the new iPad operating system by a month after setbacks with the ‘Stage Manager’ feature, which allows users to switch between open apps

It includes “the biggest update ever” to the lock screen, making it easier to change background photos and the color and design of display fonts.

The tech giant also announced Apple Pay Later, which splits payments into four installments over six weeks with no interest.

The next software update for the Apple Watch, WatchOS 9, was previewed at the event, which is still slated for release in September along with iOS 16.

WatchOS 9 comes with four new watch faces to choose from, and the Workout app has custom workouts, heart rate zones, and multisport mode for triathletes.

Those looking to track their sleep will also benefit from the introduction of sleep stages into the sleep experience on Apple Watch.

One of the biggest updates is a new Medication experience, which allows users to track their medications, vitamins, and supplements, and set schedules and reminders.

Apple’s upcoming flagship smartwatch will have a 5 percent larger screen and be able to track your body temperature to detect if you have a fever, leaks suggest.

According to prolific Apple tipster Mark Gurman in Los Angeles, the company will add body temperature sensing to its Series 8 model, which is expected to be released this fall.

Meanwhile, another leaker, Ross Young in Austin, Texas, claims the Series 8’s screen size will measure 1.99 inches diagonally.

This would make the Series 8 the largest Apple Watch screen yet, although the Domiwear DM100 is the largest on the market, with a whopping 2.86-inch screen.
