[Updated] iPadOS 16.1 dock folder pop-up not centered & top area not blurred? You aren't alone

New updates are being added at the bottom of this story…….

Original story (published on October 27, 2022) follows:

Apple recently released the iPadOS 16.1 update that brings a highly anticipated feature of Stage Manager along with a dedicated Weather app.

It introduces a new display scaling setting that lets users increase the pixel density of the display for better visibility.

Moreover, the redesigned Home app also makes it easier to navigate, organize, and control smart home accessories.

However, a bug has currently popped up that is interfering with folders when opened in the dock.

Dock folder pop-up not centered & top area not blurred after iPadOS 16.1 update

Lately, many iPad owners are experiencing a couple of issues while opening folders in the dock after installing the latest iPadOS 16.1 update.

The blurred background cuts off at the top and you get about an inch or so of the desktop clear. I noticed it too. Definitely a bug.

According to reports, the folder pop-up in the dock doesn’t always appear in the center. At times, the pop-up shifts downwards and later re-centers, at least for some.

Furthermore, the top area of the pop-up also isn’t blurred in the background after opening a particular folder and some part of it remains clear, thus exposing a section of the background.

It seems that the issue is only triggered when you open folders in the dock. Apparently, folders from the Home Screen open in the center of the screen. We’ve added a screenshot below for reference:

Unfortunately, Apple is yet to comment on the issues where the dock folder pop-up is not centered, and the top area of the same pop isn’t blurred after updating to iPadOS 16.1.

But we hope that developers will come up with a fix at the earliest. We’ll keep tabs on the issues and update this article accordingly so stay tuned for more information.

Update 1 (November 3, 2022)

04:49 pm (IST): According to some users (1, 2, 3), the issue with dock folder has been fixed in iOS 16.2 beta.
