Apple is seeding iPadOS 16.1 beta 2 after releasing iOS 16, watchOS 9, and tvOS 16. This beta was followed by a company''s announcement a month ago that it would postpone the iPadOS release to further improve its features.

Apple has confirmed that the release of iPadOS 16 is being postponed, and developers may use the iPadOS 16.1 beta, according to aBloombergreport.

Apple did not directly state that the iPadOS 16 release will be delayed owing to bugs or other quality issues. Instead, the company claims that it will be a great year for iPadOS and that it will now have its own schedule.

Here''s what Apple said in a statement toTechCrunch:

iPadOS has had an exciting year for its own devices, which allows us to customize iPadOS on its own schedule. This Fall, iPadOS will go after iOS, as version 16.1 in a free software update.

The iPadOS 16.1 beta version includes a slew of iOS 16 features, but the most key features are exclusive to theM1 iPad AirandM1 iPad Pro with Stage Manager. It also includes:

Another important feature that will be introduced for M1 iPad users running iPadOS 16 is the ability to have adequate external display support.

TheiCloud Shared Photo Library allows you to share a separate iCloud photo library with up to five people that can add, edit, favorite, and delete photos.

Apple is focusing on three key features with Messages:

  • Edit a message:During 15 minutes, users can make up to 5 edits to a given message, and recipients will be able to see a record of edits made to the message;
  • Undo send:Unsend any message for up to 2 minutes after sending it;
  • Mark as unread:Mark messages as unread when you dont have time to respond but want to be sure to reply to the sender later.

PadOS 16.1 is developing a newWeather app that will have a similar experience on macOS Ventura, with animated background, weather forecasts, air quality, and more.
