One of the new features of iPadOS 16 is not supported by older Apple tablets because the company was unhappy with the results of related tests.
The Stage Manager feature was introduced at WWDC 2022 and was only announced for the iPad based on SoC M1. At the same time, in the case of Apple tablets, there is no difference in architecture with previous generations, as in the case of Mac. Despite this, Stage Manager only works on new iPad models with the M1.
Now the company explained that it still tested the feature on older tablets with Apple A platforms, but was unhappy with the results. What exactly was wrong, the company did not say.
We’ve been testing some of our prototypes on older platforms and it’s immediately obvious that we can’t deliver the experience we’re looking for with them.
That being said, Apple has previously noted that Stage Manager requires a lot of internal storage, incredibly fast storage, and advanced I/O to an external display, all of which are provided by the iPad with the M1 chip. Apparently, it’s not just architecture.
Recall, Stage Manager is a function of arranging and grouping the windows of running applications, which allows you to quickly switch between the desired programs.
