Apple unveiled its latest iPadOS 16 update to the world, showcasing all the new multitasking changes to enhance user productivity.

Stage Manager is Only Available on Three iPad Models With an M1 Chip

If you have iPad Pro models with an M1 chip or the latest iPad Air 5, Center Stage will be available with the release of iPadOS 16 later this year.

Since Stage Manager is the bigger feature coming with iPadOS 16, it is unfortunate for older iPad models. Stage Manager is also available on Mac and it allows you to overlap windows for the very first time on the iPad. You also have the option to resize the windows. The way Stage Manager works is simple: your main app will be open but the recently used apps will be stacked vertically on the left side of the screen for easy access.
