Issue #108: Apple should release iPadOS 16

Work is progressing on iPadOS 16.1, and that’s good, obviously, but I think it was a bad decision to skip iPadOS 16.0. Don’t get me wrong, the state of 16.0 when Apple announced the decision was far from launch-ready.

Which isn’t exactly true, is it? The big pro feature of iPadOS 16, Stage Manager, was where the problem was. This is why our iPads aren’t running iPadOS 16 today, while our iPhones are on iOS 16. It’s Stage Manager’s fault.
