Following the launch of the iPhone 14 and iOS 16’s stable version, the next thing that the users have been looking forward to is the release date of the iPadOS 16. And, Apple has officially confirmed the launch of iPadOS 16 and it’s going to be in October 2022.
According to the latest reports, the iPadOS 16 will bring forth a plethora of new features, including improved multitasking and collaboration tools.
Also, the iPadOS 16.1 is going to be the very first version of the iPadOS 16 that will be available to consumers. If you have been looking forward to this official launch, here’s what you can expect.
When will iPadOS 16 be released?
The iPadOS 16 will be released in October 2022. Although the users previously thought that the iPadOS 16 will be launched alongside iOS 16, Apple has pushed the release date by another month.
The primary reason behind the delay is that October will also witness the launch of a brand-new entry-level iPad from Apple. So, reports are that the iPadOS 16 will be released along with the official launch of the new iPad.
How to get the iPadOS 16 beta?
Although users have to officially wait for another month to get access to the stable iPadOS 16 version, the beta version is already available online.
The software, which was initially announced at the WWDC event in June, now has an official public beta that users can download and use.
If you are considering downloading and using the beta version, we’d recommend not using it in a primary iPad that you use for day-to-day work since it’s not a stable version.
