How to split-screen on iPad for multitasking


We all know how convenient it is for us to work on an iPad. The device is a kind of hybrid of a smartphone and a laptop with unique features of its own. One such feature is the split screen mode in an iPad that allows you to work on different apps at the same time making it a multifunctional multipurpose device. However, the model of your iPhone may also determine whether you can use this feature or not. In this article, I will show you how to split screen on iPad. So, if you have the right iPad now is the time to actually get this feature into use and enhance your Apple experience. 


The difference between the Split  View screen and Slide Over screen


The two different multitasking modes on your iPad are Slide Over and Split View. Slide Over allows you to display two apps on the screen at once by stacking one programme in a tiny pane on top of the other. Two apps can be presented on the screen in independent, resizable windows using Split View. After this, you can simply add the third app dividing the screen into three different work or command zones.


Slide Over and Split View are all supported by the iPad Pro, all iPad models from the 5th generation onward, the iPad Air 2 and beyond, and the iPad mini 4 and later. Certain iPads from previous versions would only partially support Split View while fully supporting Slide Over. So, if you are carrying the older versions then you may not be able to use these features. 


How to split screen on iPad


  • The first thing that you have to do for iPad split screen is open any app on the device. 


  • Then, tap on the three dots icon lying on the centre-top of your iPad screen. 


  • Once you tap on it, you will see three icons. You will have to tap on the centre one with the screen devices into two.


  • As the active app is moved aside, the Home screen will become visible. By tapping it on the Home screen or in the Dock, you can view another app on the opposite side of the screen. A second app will be seen next to the first.


  • In case you want to exit the split screen remember that the apps are divided when they are separated by a thin black line or divider bar. Holding the divider bar in place, move it to the left or right side of the screen. Then, there will be only one app on the screen.
