Apple macOS Ventura, iOS 16.1 and iPadOS 16

Today marks a significant day for Apple updates as Apple releases updated versions of the Mac, iPhone, and iPad operating systems. While the majority of iPhone users have already seen iOS 16, most people will be using iPadOS 16 and macOS Ventura for the first time.


In light of rumors that it required more time to perfect the Stage Manager multitasking feature, Apple postponed the launch of iPadOS 16 (which we felt was unrefined in an early iPadOS 16 beta). In fact, Apple announced that it would bypass an iPadOS 16 public release in favor of version 16.1 just in time for the company’s newest iPad Pro and entry-level iPad to debut this week.


MacOS Ventura, iOS 16.1 and iPadOS 16

The latest version much of the same enhancements as iOS 16 for the iPad operating system, including important updates to Mail, Safari, Messages, and other essential apps. While the weather and clock applications are finally arriving to the iPad, there are more features focused on teamwork. Within the next few months, Stage Manager’s external display support will be delivered.

Apple will release Freeform, a teamwork and productivity iPad software, later this year. Users can use the Apple Pencil to scribble ideas on what appears to be an upgraded whiteboard. According to the business, you may add virtually any type of material to the canvas and preview the content inline, including images, videos, audio, PDFs, documents, and URLs.

Stage Manager is also the main attraction of macOS Ventura. During our hands-on with the beta, we felt that the feature improved the multitasking experience on Mac. The Continuity Camera feature, which offers a native way to use your iPhone as a Mac webcam, sounds intriguing, as does the introduction of shared tab groups and passkeys to Safari.


More accessibility options are always welcome too. With macOS Ventura, Apple is adding Live Captions for all audio content, a Type to Speak function for calls, a Text Checker proofreading tool for those who use the VoiceOver screen reader and other tools. Meanwhile, it’s worth noting that the System Preferences menu is now called System Settings, and it has a redesign to align it more with iPhone and iPad settings.


As for iOS 16.1, that offers shared photo libraries through iCloud and a clean energy charging function, which optimizes iPhone charging times depending on when the power grid is using greener energy sources (though that feature is US-only for now). Apple Fitness+ is now available on iPhone without the need for an Apple Watch. Also new are an improved battery life icon, third=party app support in Live Activities and per-app copy-and-paste permissions, which should mitigate iOS 16’s irritating paste prompts.
