Your iPad may not be as powerful as a full-blown computer, but there is no gap. Just as you can juggle with multiple programs on your PC, you can do the same with multiple apps on your iPad.
Tapping on your tablet's multitasking capabilities lets you view and edit two to three apps on the screen at once. This lets you drag and drop text, images, links, and even files from one app to another.
Your iPad offers two different multitasking modes: Run Over and Split View. With Slide Over, you can see two apps on the screen, with one app floating in a narrow area above the other. Split view lets you see two apps on the screen in their own customizable areas. Then you can add a third app that is in the floating area.
Slip and split support varies by device. The iPad Pro, the iPad mini 4 and older as well as the 9.7 inch iPad support both modes. The iPad Air and older iPad Minis support Slide Over, but not Split View.
