Throughout the iOS 16 beta period, which took place between June and September of this year, Apple announced that it was postponing some of the new features of the operating system. The lack of stability, increased complexity and many other factors have been decisive in postponing some of these star features. Nevertheless, Apple expects to introduce new features in iOS 16 by the end of the year, with new updates. We tell you what those functions would be below.
iOS 16 will have new functions (that had been postponed) at the end of the year
Without a doubt, the most anticipated feature by all iPad owners is Stage Manager or Visual Organizer. Apple announced that this interface would not reach the final version of iOS 16.
