The upcoming iPadOS 16 update which was first announced by Apple during WWDC 2022 is expected to be delayed for about a month and will not be released at the same time with iOS 16. This is according to reliable tipster and insider Mark Gurman who got the info from ‘people with knowledge on the matter’.

Writing on his popular column on Bloomberg, Gurman said that this is the first time in years that Apple would not be releasing the iPadOS update in September or at the same time with the iOS update. As for the delay itself, Gurman said that it has something to do with the ‘ambitious’ overhaul of the OS’ multitasking capabilities.


This includes the ‘Stage Manager’ feature that lets users operate several tasks at the same time, resize windows, multitask between different clusters of apps and even conduct multitasking across the iPad’s screen and an external monitor.

While the feature is definitely something exciting, its current implementation has been criticised by beta testers for being buggy, confusing and lacks compatibility with most iPads. Hence, iPad users can expect to get iPadOS some time in October 2022 instead of in September.

However, Gurman said that iOS 16 will still be on time and is expected to be released together with the new iPhone 14 Series. Well, do take this information with a grain of salt as while Gurman has been incredibly accurate with his predictions, nothing is confirmed as of yet.
