How to Use Split View on iPad For Multitasking

Since the launch of iPad Pro coupled with the release of iOS 9, creativity and productivity has been the focal point of Apple, and they have done some quite amazing things to achieve that. A Split View on iPad is one such feature which allows you to multitask by dividing the screen in two, and lets you work on two apps simultaneously.

Using Split View on iPad is pretty easy and we’ll tell you how you can use it on your iPad.

Use Split View on iPad

  • To start with, simply open an app on your iPad.
  •  Now, to add another app to the screen, swipe you finger from the right edge of your iPad to the left side on screen.
  •       You will now have a Slide Over screen with multiple apps available to choose from.

  •       Choose the app you want to open. It will open and cover a portion of the screen along with the already opened app.

  •           You could resize the screen portion for both the apps by tapping and holding the screen divider to move it right or left to your desired location.

The split view on iPad has basically been launched in iPad Pro to use its majestically large screen to the optimum, but now it has been made part of the iOS 9 and could be used in all the iPads running this version of the iOS.

How to Exit Split View on iPad

Once you want to return to your normal full size screen view for a single app, there is a couple of ways you can do that:

Drag the vertical bar that is dividing the screen in half, push it to the right, thereby closing the app which was running on that portion of the screen.

Or else, press the Home button on your iPad and it will close both the apps.

Split View on iPad is a great feature when it comes to productivity by multitasking. You can browse and watch a video at the same time, or text while surfing the internet at the same time. iPad has become more productive with the release of iOS 9 and some powerful productivity apps launched along with it. A split view on iPad is the feature that becomes a must have for getting the maximum out of that.

Hope this helps. Share your feedback in the comments.
