That’s why Stage Manager is only for the iPad M1

After WWDC 2022 ends, Craig Federighi Apple talked to TechCrunch’s Matthew Panzarino about the new option Stage Manager made available for iPad and Mac. And he focused mainly on why this is limited to the iPad models with the M1 chip. So let’s find out what it is.

Stage Manager: Craig Federighi’s comment on the iPad option

On the occasion of WWDC 22, Apple presented one of the biggest innovations of recent years. Stage Manager, an option that allows users to resize apps in overlapping windows for a better multitasking experience. Furthermore, it also supports an external display with up to 6K resolution, allowing users to work with up to 4 Apps on the iPad and up to 4 Apps on the external display. Apple said Stage Manager “requires large internal memory, blazingly fast storage, and flexible external display I / O, all provided by the iPad with the M1 chip.”

For his part, Craig Federighi confirmed that the power of the M1 chip ensures that all the Apps used in Stage Manager are “instantly reactive”. “It is only the iPad M1 that have combined the high capacity of DRAM with a very high capacity and a high performance NAND that allow our virtual memory to be super fast – comments Federighi -. We now allow you to have up to four Apps on one panel plus another four – up to eight Apps to be instantly responsive and have a lot of memory, but we just don’t have that capability on other systems. ” Like, for example, the previous generation iPad Pro.

“We have really designed Stage Manager to take full advantage [il chip M1]. If you look at the way apps tilt and shade and how they animate inside and out. To do this at very high frame rates, on very large displays and multiple displays, you need the highest graphics performance that no one else can offer. When you put all of this together, we cannot offer the full Stage Manager experience on any minor system. I mean, we’d like to make it available wherever we can. But this is what it requires. This is the experience we will bring into the future. We didn’t want to tie our design to something minor, we are setting the benchmark for the future “.
