Apart from iOS 16.1 beta 5, Apple has also seeded beta 6 of iPadOS 16.1. iPadOS 16.1 is a major update, considering the number of features it will bring to the table. One of the major visual changes is the new Stage Manager multitasking interface. It will display all the running apps on the left portion of the display, stacked neatly so you can swap with ease and continue the task at hand.

iPadOS 16.1 beta also removes the external display functionality of Stage Manager. The feature will return in a later beta. Other than this, we have previously heard that Apple is bringing Stage Manager support to older iPad models. Initially, Apple restricted the feature to work on only iPad models with an M1 chip.
