Apple wasted no time releasing the first beta version of iOS 16.2 and iPadOS 16.2 to developers just days after the public release of iOS 16.1 and iPadOS 16.1.

Looking at the official release notes (opens in new tab), we see that the beta will finally allow people to get their hands on the Freeform iPad app, which was first revealed in June 2022 during Apple’s Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC). It is a digital canvas that allows users to collaborate on projects alongside others. Stage Manager is seeing the return of support for external displays, but only for iPads M1 and M2 as Apple continues to figure out what to do with the desktop management app.
