techno.rentetan.com – With additional visual functions the iPadOS 15 increases many tasks. How can I utilize them here?

Apple has recently launched a new iPad multipurpose system every two years or so. iPadOS 15 offers a newly renovated iPad and iPad pro multitasking system, but this time, Apple has made major progress to make multitasking for new users easier.

There are now real buttons for programs running side by side, and as this new system builds on in recent years, if that is what you’re used to, you can still use the drag & drop gestures. Here are the information you need regarding the new features for iPadOS 15 in Split View.

How to use the new iPadOS 15 multi-task menu

You can drag and place a new program from the Dock at the edge of the screen in split view mode. The prior approach still works. But this limits you to Dock-only applications, and the new Multitasking system of Apple finally corrects this deadly defect.

Tap the new 3-point menu button on top of the app when you open it (this is located in the middle of the status bar).

Three different options are presented. The first one will start the app in fullscreen mode, the second one will open Split View and the third will open Slide Over. Select the option Split View.

You will see the application animate and dock right. You may now access the complete iPad home screen. The home screen, app library, or search can browse and choose an application.

The app is docked in Split View whenever the app is selected. Use the black bar in the middle to resize the windows.

How to use the new iPadOS 15 application switcher

The app switcher is also updated by iPadOS 15. You still get to it through the Home Bar and hold on for a second or two. You still access it. The layout is still known (and it functions the same, like wiping up and closing an app), but slide-over windows are now finished with their own area. You can transition to any Slide Over panel here.

The greatest change, however, is that there are live and dynamic all windows and SplitView panels. A Split View pair allows you to choose and move the application window out for a full-screen display. Similarly, a split view pair can be created from an app on top of another.

You will notice a little Windows symbol when an application has many windows open (it looks like two cascading squares).

You can see all windows in the application (including Split View and Slide Over windows) on a single screen when taping it.

How to use your iPad’s shelf

A new feature in iPadOS 15, the Shelf, is invoked by multiple application windows. This is a new panel, which looks like a dock when you open a multi-Windows app.

The multi-task menu can also be accessed via taping. In essence, this is a fast visual approach to exchange several windows of the same application.

Use the fresh new shortcuts for many tasks

Although keyboard shorts on the iPad are not new, they come to life with iPadOS 15. You can hold the command key to view a floating window containing all the shortcuts linked with your application, as you might already know.

However, in iPadOS 15 you may see a Multitasking Tab, which shows you a series of powerful and new keyboard shortcuts about multitasking. If you use your iPad or iPad Pro with a keyboard adapter, you should imprint these shortcuts to your muscle memory:

Globe+Left/Right Arrow: Move fast between last and final app (or the app pairs).

Globe+Up: Switcher Open Apps.

Globle+Down: Displays open windows in all applications.

Globe+F: Turn a fullscreen application into the current Split View app.

Control+Globle+Left/Right: Tile left or right of the current application.

Control+Globe+Down: In Split View, replace the current app.

Globe+Tilde: Go to the window next to it.

Split View on the iPad how to exit

The previous multitasking system’s incarnations have always been difficult to uncouple two Split-View programs. Things are considerably simpler with the multi-task menu button.

If you want to construct a full- screen program or window, just pick the Multitasking Menu button from the top, select a full-screen icon (three-dot icon).

And here, both applications are unparalleled presently.
