Stage Manager in iPadOS 16 is now optimized for iPhone apps on the iPad, allowing users to run iPhone apps designed for the smaller iPhone screen in their own windows while using Stage Manager on iPads with M1 processors.
Since the release of iPadOS 16 beta 3, Apple has let iPhone apps to operate as separate Stage Manager windows. This means that thanks to the new multitasking interface, popular iPhone apps that don’t have an iPad app, like Instagram, can attain a somewhat typical user experience.
One of iPadOS 16’s most notable new features is Stage Manager, which enables users to have overlapping program windows. Only the most recent iPad Air and the 11-inch and 12.9-inch iPad Pros with M1 support Stage Manager on iPadOS 16. Apple claims that Stage Manager can only be used on iPads with the M1 processor.
This fall will see the public release of watchOS 9, macOS Ventura, and iPadOS 16, together with iOS 16.
