  • Let’s say you’re working in Notes and it would be helpful to look at two notes at the same time. To do this, select a note from the sidebar and drag it to either side of the screen.
  • This is Split View on iPad. You can edit each of these notes on their own. Drag the divider to adjust how much space each side takes up.
  • Need to look at another note? Slide one finger up from the bottom edge of the screen until the Dock appears, then release.
  • Then tap that same app icon and tap the plus icon in the upper right corner to open another window in a new space. Now you can easily switch between Notes spaces by swiping along the bottom of the screen, or by swiping across the screen with four fingers.
  • To see all of your open spaces for this app, slide one finger up from the bottom edge to reveal the Dock again, and select the app you’d like to view. This is called App Expose, which shows all of the spaces where you have open windows for that app.
  • Using a split-screen on iPad, you can also work in two different apps side by side. In an app, swipe up to reveal the Dock.
  • Touch and hold another app and drag it upwards. Let’s add a photo to Notes.
  • Touch and hold the photo and drag it into your note. Done!
  • This space will show up in App Expose for both Notes and Mail.

You can exit Split View anytime. Just drag the app divider to either edge of the screen over the app or space you no longer need to view. Both of these spaces will return to a single full screen. You’ll find them in App Expose or the App Switcher, should you need them again.
