The Basics

Before you can use the new multitasking features of iPadOS, you should find your way around the iPad, especially if you do not have a home button.

Tap to wake up

All you have to do is tap twice.

You can activate the new Liquid Retina display by tapping the screen once. It's a simple way to check the time, read notifications, or customize media playback.

Wake and then Unlock

Swipe up to unlock the iPad. If it has a face ID, the process is seamless.


Jason Cipriani / CNET

Swipe up from the bottom of the screen to wake up your iPad Pro with a tap of your finger to get to the splash screen.

Show App Dock

The app dock is just below the bottom of the screen. Swipe up to see it.


Jason Cipriani / CNET

To view the app dock, swipe up from the bottom of the screen, about an inch or so. The app dock is displayed, where you can switch between apps or drag icons to one of the sides of the screen to start the split screen.

Back to home screen

If you swipe up longer, you will return to the home screen.


Jason Cipriani / CNET

You can always return to the home screen of your iPad Pro by quickly swiping up from the bottom of the screen. I've found the best way to do this by wiping across half of the screen in a swift motion.

Notification Center

Notifications and media controls are just a swipe away.


Jason Cipriani / CNET

Swipe down from the top of the screen to see your notifications.

Control Center

The Control Center is located in the same location as the newer iPhones – upper right corner.


Jason Cipriani / CNET

The iPad Pro Control Center is located in the upper right corner of the screen. Swipe down to see all the controls you've set, no matter which app you're using.

Today View

Your Today widgets on the iPadOS are still a wipe away.


Jason Cipriani / CNET

The Today view, where all your widgets are, is still to the left of the splash screen. Instead of displaying a completely new window, the widgets take up part of the screen and zoom out the app icons. You can even paste Today View to your home screen by tapping Edit at the bottom of your widgets and enabling the Stay on Home Screen screen.

Multitasking

One of the biggest problems with the iPad software is that it sometimes feels restrictive. What iPadOS is trying to do is extend the current functionality by adding more features and capabilities.

App Switcher

The thumbnails even show a preview of the opened split-screen apps.


Jason Cipriani / CNET

To switch between open apps, swipe up from the bottom of the screen to see the App Switcher. But instead of doing it in a swift motion, as is the case when you return to the home screen, hold your finger on the screen for a brief second. When you raise your finger, thumbnails of the currently open apps and any saved areas in which you used split-screen mode are displayed.

Force apps to close

Swipe up on an iPhone to close apps.


Jason Cipriani / CNET

To force apps to close, open the App Switcher and swipe over the app thumbnails. You can close multiple apps at once to speed work when needed.

Quick App Switch

Swipe left or right across the bottom of the screen.


Jason Cipriani / CNET

Do you see this bar at the bottom of the screen? It's a constant reminder of where you can navigate with gestures through the iPad Pro. It's also the same place where you can quickly switch between apps. Swipe right on the bar to return to the last used app. As you scroll through apps, you can also swipe left over the bar. Neat, what?

Opening an App in Slide Over

Slide Over lets you view an app in another app.


Jason Cipriani / CNET

Slide Over allows you to use two apps at the same time, leaving your primary app behind the second app in full-screen mode. Slide Over is useful if you want to check your emails or browse the music app without switching apps. To use Slide Over, drag an app's icon to one of the sides of the screen and release.

Move the slide-over to both sides.

Slide-over apps can be viewed on both sides of the screen.


Jason Cipriani / CNET

At the top of the Slide Over window is a small handle that lets you drag it to one of the sides of your screen. You can use the same handle to drag the window to the far right side of the iPad screen and open it in split view.

Switching between slide-over apps quickly

iPhone users feel at home when switching between slide-over apps.


Jason Cipriani / CNET

New to iPadOS is the ability to switch between multiple slide-over apps. Swipe the handle at the bottom of the Slide Over window to switch apps – the same gesture works on newer iPhones. Similarly, you can also view all open Slide Over apps by swiping up from the bottom of the Slide Over window.

How to remove a slide-over window?

Hiding the slide-over window is not very intuitive.


Jason Cipriani / CNET

You may want to hide a slide-over app by using the handle at the top of the window to remove it from the screen. This is not the case. Instead, place one finger on the left edge of the app and slide to the right. The window disappears from the screen, but can be returned to the left by swiping from the right edge of the screen.

What about Split View?

Opening an app in split view has not changed on the iPadOS.


Jason Cipriani / CNET

To use two apps at the same time, each occupying part of the screen, you should use split view. Open an app in split view by dragging a Safari tab, email message, or app icon to the right side of the screen.

Change the size of the window as well!

Change the size of shared viewports in iPadOS.


Jason Cipriani / CNET

There is a small handle between the two windows that lets you drag and change the size of each app's storage.

If you master the gestures used for navigation and multitasking, you feel like a pro when you bypass the iPad .
