iPad Pro: 9 gestures you need to know



Apple continues to eliminate the home button from iOS devices across its lineup. The latest victim is the new iPad Pro, which now boasts thin bezels and Face ID. The problem with leaving the home button behind is that now we have to navigate the iPad and iOS using gestures.

During the setup process, Apple walks you through a quick tutorial that shows you how to get to the home screen, but it stops there. There are plenty of gestures you'll need to learn.

After waking your iPad Pro with a tap, swipe up from the bottom of the screen to go to the home screen.

To view the app dock, swipe up from the bottom of the screen, roughly an inch or so. The app dock wants to show up, letting you switch between apps or drag on icon to either side of the screen to start split screen.

Get back to the homescreen

At any time you can get back to the screen of your iPad Pro by swiping up from the bottom of the screen in a quick motion. I've found that the best way to do it is to swipe about halfway up the screen in a quick motion.

App Switcher

When you want to switch between open apps, you can see the App Switcher with a swipe up from the bottom of the display. But instead of doing it in a quick motion as the case goes back to the homescreen, break for a letter second with your finger on the screen. When you lift your finger, you'll see thumbnails of currently open apps and any saved spaces where you may have been using split-screen mode.

Force close apps

To force close apps, open the App Switcher and then begin swiping on the thumbnails app. You can close multiple apps at the same time to speed things up if needed.

See that bar at the bottom of the screen? It's a constant reminder of how to use gestures for navigating the iPad Pro. It's the same spot you can use to quickly switch between apps. As you scroll through apps, you can swipe to the left over the bar. Neat, eh?

Control Center

The iPad Pro's Control Center is located in the top-right corner of the screen. Swipe down to get all the controls you have set up for Control Center, regardless of which app you're currently using.

Notification Center

You can still view your notifications and the Today view with a swipe from the tip of the screen – save for the top-right corner.

After mastering these exercises, you have no issues getting around the iPad Pro like a, well, a pro.
