If there’s one new feature that people talk about a whole week after the WWDC keynote, it’s the stage manager. A brand new interface for Mac and iPad, Stage Manager has already created a fair share of feedback, some people prefer the new multitasking method and others Questioning its benefits.
According to Craig Federighi, those responses were expected. In an interview with TechCrunch, he explained that Apple is listening to the initial critics of Stage Manager and has improved work for future beta releases. However, if one expects wholesale changes to systems such as last year’s Safari redesign, think again:
“We haven’t seen anything that makes us think, like, ‘Oh, this is unexpected news.’ Many of them are responses that we expect from people who have not adapted to the system or who have refinements to our flights. So yes, we must continue. “
Federighi added that the stage manager is limited to Apple Silicon machines due to the high demand for the new system and will not fit into any older device. Stage Manager requires the fastest graphics, storage and RAM that Apple wanted to achieve. “If you look at how apps tilt and shadow, and how they animate inside and out,” said Federighi, “it requires a very high frame rate across very large displays and multiple displays. You can. “
That being said, Stage Manager will not come on any older device. Federichi said he would “like to make it available wherever we can” but would not be able to provide a complete stage manager experience on any low system.
But for those who have the hardware that can run the new system, you can wait for changes, changes and improvements throughout the development cycle. “Some of the feedback we’ve got is where we want to say, ‘Yeah, I mean two seeds or three seeds coming!’ We’ve already identified those things, either bugs or just incomplete elements or changes in behavior. “
The first developer beta of iPadOS 16 and macOS 13 Ventura is out and the public beta should arrive in July.
