In a Twitter post, Bou, who’s known for hardware-related leaks, said that Apple is working on a smart system for the iPadOS called the ‘Apple Mixer’ for how the apps respond when a keyboard and trackpad is connected to the tablet. According to him, the iPadOS apps will continue to open in full screen, as they have been doing till now, but will immediately shrink as soon as a keyboard and trackpad get connected to the tablet.
“We don’t know if it will be included in iPadOS 16 or not, It should be M1 iPad exclusive.”, the leaker added at the end of the tweet.

The claim does not make it clear whether the keyboard connection to the iPad would affect any app that’s already open or whether this floating window feature would be rolled across to all the iPads or just select ones.
