Multitask on iPad
Keep useful widgets on the Home screen, work with multiple apps at the same time, and quickly switch between your favorite apps.
Pin widgets to the Home screen
To make your favorite widgets easily available, add them to Today View. Rotate iPad to landscape orientation, then swipe right on the Home screen. Swipe up, tap Edit, then turn on Keep on Home Screen. Drag your favorite widgets to Pinned Favorites so they’re always visible.
Work with two apps at once
Use Split View to check your mail while you work on a presentation, or browse the web while you chat in Messages. With one app open, swipe up from the bottom edge and pause to reveal the Dock, then drag another app to the side of the screen.
Quickly switch between open apps
While using an app, swipe left or right with four fingers. Or swipe up from the bottom edge, pause in the center of the screen, then tap an app.
Want to switch to another app in the Slide Over window? Swipe up from the bottom of the Slide Over window, then tap an app.
