How iPad works on multiple apps on same screen

SHARE
The latest iOS 9 has added the iPads, the multitasking feature on-screen, which is the ability to work on multiple apps on-screen at the same time. Slide Over, Split View, and Picture in Picture are the three chief types of multitasking iPads support, while they also work on the app-switching gestures.

It’s one of the long-awaited features on iPads, as Windows have rolled the feature long back for years. While few of the Android manufacturers run own versions of the feature, Google hasn’t yet built the Android yet, and so Apple in this aspect leaps past Android.

Slide Over

Slide Over makes the app run in Compact mode without exiting the current full-screen app. While it’s not possible to interact with the two apps at same time, it allows us to quickly carry the note-taking or chat app, without losing the original app. To get into Slide Over, swipe in from the right side of iPad’s display for a small side pane. Slide Over works on either portrait mode or landscape mode. Tap an app in the list for loading it in the side pane, and now you can now switch between “slide over” apps by swiping down from the top of the app in the sidebar.

iPad Pro, iPad Air, iPad Air 2, iPad Mini 2, iPad Mini 3, and iPad Mini 4 will support this feature on iOS9.

Split View

For activating the split view in the iPad, swipe the handle towards the center of the screen. You can now see the two apps simultaneously at the same time on screen, like two of the apps in either half of your screen and letting you interact with both of them simultaneously.

iPad Pro, iPad Air 2, and iPad Mini 4 will support the split view feature on iOS9.

Picture in Picture Mode

Picture in Picture mode apt for the video-related apps, be it watching videos or taking on the video calls. It takes the video and transforms into a small thumbnail, allowing you to follow app to app as you use on iPad. For activating the Picture in Picture mode, tap on the new “picture in picture” icon which appears in the video players. Developers are required to add support for this feature to their video apps. Press on the video to display buttons which allow you to pause the video, close it, or go back to the app the video is from.

iPad Pro, iPad Air, iPad Air 2, iPad Mini 2, iPad Mini 3, and iPad Mini 4 will support the Picture in Picture mode on iOS9.
