Which iPad Support iPadOS 16?

06 Feb 2023


iPadOS 16 will be compatible with the following devices:

- iPad mini 5th generation


iPadOS 16 beta version for the public is available from July & the official release timeframe will be around September 2022 for Apple iPad devices exclusively.


iPadOS 16 will be the next-gen version of iPadOS which was unveiled by Apple at the June WWDC 22 event and will be released in September. New collaborative capabilities and upgrades to apps like Notes, Mail, and Messages will be there in iPadOS 16. 

iPadOS 16 will also bring the “Weather” app on Apple iPads for the very first time and several ‘Tech-Pro’ features, such as a completely new multitasking experience, full external display support, display zoom, and much more. 

Apart from all these features, there will be some UI (User Interface) refinements & bug fixes when the final update will be thrown by Apple later this year. 

After the release of M1 chip-based devices, we know that integration across Apple devices has become even seamless & better. So, there will be even better support for desktop-based apps in iPadOS 16 than its predecessors. 

Calendar, Contacts, Photos, and Mail are just a few examples of desktop-class apps that offer new features that are optimised for the iPad's display in addition to more advanced system elements and interactions. These features include a consistent undo and redo experience across the system, a redesigned find-and-replace experience, customizable toolbars, and more. 

You have more options than ever with the iPadOS 16's strong new features. Share information and interact with important people. Your performance will improve. The system as a whole has more competent, customizable, and intuitive apps.

Several "pro" features in iPadOS 16 are exclusively available on iPad devices starting with the M1 chip. With its multiple overlapping windows and full support for external displays, Stage Manager introduces a new way to multitask. 

Reference Mode enables the iPad to precisely match colour workflow requirements, Display Zoom offers more screen space, and virtual memory swap increases the amount of memory that is accessible to apps.


With the introduction of the Weather app in iPadOS 16, users can now check the most recent weather reports and browse maps to monitor temperature, precipitation, UV rays and air quality levels. 

Users may indeed check the air quality using a colour-coded scale or be alerted when a severe weather warning is issued in their location. 

Now, tapping on any Weather panel will bring up more information. It is simpler to understand the temperature range and the weather conditions on an hourly basis by tapping on the main weekly or 10-day forecast, in that matter which brings up a more thorough prediction that allows you to see the temperature for each day on a graph view.



 Desktop-class apps offer new features available on Mac that are optimised for the iPad's display, including a consistent undo and redo experience throughout the system, a redesigned find-and-replace experience, customisable toolbars, and more for a variety of Apple programmes.
