How do I enable split screen on my iPad?

Answered by Jason Smith

To enable split screen on your iPad, you can follow these steps:

1. Start by opening the first app you want to use in split screen. This will be the app that appears on the left side of the screen.

2. Once you have the first app open, tap the three dots at the top of the app. This will open a menu with various options.

3. From the menu, tap the “Split View” option. This will allow you to open a second app alongside the first one.

4. Now, you can either choose an app from your Home Screen or from the Dock to open as the second app. Simply swipe up from the bottom of the screen to access the Dock, or go to the Home Screen by pressing the Home button.

5. Once you’ve found the second app you want to open, tap it to launch it. The second app will appear on the right side of the screen.

6. Now, you have successfully enabled split screen on your iPad. You can adjust the size of the apps by dragging the vertical bar that separates them to the left or right.

7. To switch between the two apps in split screen, swipe left or right on the vertical bar. This will bring the other app into focus.

8. If you want to close one of the apps in split screen, simply swipe the vertical bar all the way to one side. This will close the app on that side and expand the remaining app to full screen.

Using split screen on iPad can be convenient for multitasking, allowing you to work on two apps simultaneously. It is especially useful for tasks like taking notes while reading, comparing documents or websites side by side, or even watching a video while browsing the web.

I hope this detailed explanation helps you enable split screen on your iPad and enhance your productivity!
