iOS 16's Updated Lock Screen With Widgets Will Not be Coming With iPadOS 16

For a long time, Apple's iOS and iPadOS operating systems have shared numerous features including visual changes. While there are still various similarities, Apple is widening the gap between the two platforms. This is because iOS 16's new Lock Screen will not be making its way to iPadOS 16. In the first developer beta, the iPadOS 16 lock screen does not allow customization at all.

Even if iPadOS 16 misses out on the new Lock Screen, it is still a major update considering the number of forward-facing features it brings to the table. One of the biggest changes coming later this year is Stage Manager which will be available on all iPad models powered by Apple's M1 chip. In addition, Apple is also pushing developers to bring desktop-class apps to the platform. This will allow the iPad to compete better against a 'computer.' You can check out more details here.
