Apple’s latest tablet OS includes Stage Manager, a redesigned Weather app, and other improvements that were announced alongside iOS 16.
Amongst a plethora of other announcements, Apple stated on Tuesday that iPadOS 16 and macOS Ventura will be released on October 24. Stage Manager, new in iPad 16, makes switching between apps and multitasking simpler. Third- and fourth-generation iPad Pros will soon be able to use the feature, which was previously only available on the M1-powered iPad Air and the 11-inch and 12.9-inch iPad Pro models released last year.
With Stage Manager, users can easily build groups of applications by dragging and dropping windows from the sidebar or launching programs from the Dock. The active app window is displayed in the middle, with the most recently used apps and windows listed to the left.
In macOS Ventura, the function creates a sort of sidebar where you can arrange the rest of your running programs. Windows are grouped neatly into stacks, and clutter from your desktop disappears. When a window is minimized, it will no longer appear in the toolbar but rather in the left sidebar.
When you have macOS Ventura installed on your computer and iOS 16 installed on your compatible device, you can utilize your iPhone as a webcam by using the Continuity Camera function.
Apple has also stated that the release date of the M2 iPad Pro is October 26. The M1 chip in the iPad Pro has been replaced with the more powerful M2 chip in the latest revision. There are eight CPU cores on the new chip, which results in a performance increase of about 15%. Apple claims a 35% increase in performance thanks to the GPU’s 10 cores.
Furthermore, Apple revealed a new iPad, which the firm simply refers to as “the iPad.” It’s a radical redesign, with Apple ditching the square corners and home button of previous iterations in favor of rounded ones. iPads now resemble the iPad Air and iPad Pro in design. Starting at $449, the tablet is more expensive than its predecessor, which retailed at $329.
The latest Apple TV 4K, launched today, is cheaper and has more storage space than its predecessor. The new Apple TV 4K and it’s upgraded Siri remote, which features a USB-C charging connector, go on sale on November 4. In addition, Apple claims that the A15 Bionic chip is up to 50% more powerful in terms of central processing unit operations. Better video quality is available on the new Apple TV 4K thanks to supporting HDR10+ and Dolby Vision.
