Part 3. Does Stage Manager Work on All iPads

NO.iPad Stage Manager enables you to expand the desktop by connecting an iPad to an additional monitor. It's a feature that ought to boost your output. Stage Manager helps the iPad seem more like a laptop replacement, but since Apple showed it off at last week's WWDC 2022 event, the function has drawn criticism.
