  • Step#5. Click on it, three or four buttons will pop up, by-default first button selected.
  • Step #6. I click on the second button, so the safari app window will move to the left side and a pop-up tells your Split view to enable so choose another app.
  • Step #7. hence, choose the second app that you want to use with safari surfing and more. I’m choosing the notes app.

So you can see both apps on a single-window screen.

  • Step #8. This feature is called Split View multitasking.

in-between of Both Apps window, you can see a bar with highlight option that help to manage an app space area in multitasking mode.

for example, I need bigger notes app viewers than safari, so I tap on a bar and drag it to the left side to make the notes app view bigger in size.

In the same way, you can act with any apps that supported multitasking windows.
