When it comes to multitasking, you can split the view between two apps, which is essentially a split screen. You can also centre one app and open other apps around it, or have one app on most of the screen with another app taking up about a fourth of the iPad.

How To Split Screen On iPad

  • Step 1: Open up one of the apps you want to use for split-screen.
  • Step 2: Tap the three vertical dot buttons at the top of the screen.
  • Step 3: Tap the Split View button, showcasing an app opened on half the screen and white space on the other half of the screen. The selected app will then move aside and your home screen will appear on the other half of the screen.
  • Step 4: Open another app on your Home Screen. This app will then open in Split Screen, allowing you to view both in a perfect split.
