One of the biggest new features coming to iPadOS 16 later this year is Stage Manager, the all-new method for multitasking on Apple's most powerful tablets. Specifically, the iPad models that are equipped with Apple silicon under the hood. Which, for now, is the M1 processor.
Apple's line of tablets are pretty powerful and helpful. And while some folks might see plenty of shortcomings with iPadOS, it's also plenty useful. And it's getting better with iPadOS 16, which is expected to arrive later this fall. To that end, Apple is finally getting around to adding one of the most important apps the company's tablets have been missing for years.
One of the biggest new elements to help boost productivity on iPad is what Apple calls Stage Manager. It's a brand new multitasking software tool that helps tablet users get more done. At least, that's the idea. But it's only available on iPad models equipped with Apple's M-series processor, the M1. And today, Apple's hoping to explain why that is.
iPadOS is the software that helps differentiate the iPad lineup from the iPhone, even if it is technically based on iOS. And there are plenty of similarities, of course, especially when it comes to general features. But that's the idea. Bridge the gap between the two mobile operating systems, but also leave plenty of similarities so that they retain that helpfulness users have come to expect.
Gamevice has been offering a gaming controller attachment for the iPhone for quite some time. And for many Android-based devices, too. But, one thing that has been missing is a game controller for the iPad lineup. But that changes, with the company officially unveiling a brand new gaming controller attachment that will fit several different iPad models across Apple's range of tablets.
The turnaround time on Apple offering refurbished products is typically pretty quick. It's not right away by any means, but usually interested parties don't have to wait too long before they can pick up a refurbished Apple-branded product for a bit less than its newer counterpart. And sometimes the wait is a bit longer.
Typically speaking, Apple isn't the highest payout when it comes to offering trade-in values. But, they aren't the worst, either. And of course, trade-in values will continue to vary on a semi-regular basis, just as we're seeing recently.
