While this feature is only totally compatible with the iPad Air 2, iPad mini 4 as well as iPad Pro (and also in limited means on some older iPads), it’s an unbelievably effective attribute that may be worth the upgrade. (Note that Multitasking does not function on any type of version of iPhone.)
Multitasking comes in 3 forms: you could have 2 apps running totally side by side in Split Sight mode, you could peek at an application and use it in limited means with Slide Over, as well as you could run a video clip in a home window all its own in a method called Photo in Picture.
Using Slide Over
Split-screen multitasking is a feature introduced in iOS 9 that actually makes the most of the newest iPads’ capabilities. You do not need the most recent equipment to use Slide Over – it also works with iPad Air and also iPad mini 2 and also 3. This helpful feature allows you run a second app on your iPad without exiting the application you’re currently utilizing. To utilize Slide Over:

3. While you remain in this method, you can switch apps by swiping from the top of the display on the Slide Over home window (similar to you were opening Notice Center). If you desire to leave Slide Over mode, either press the House switch or tap the pain bar as well as pull it back to the appropriate side of the display as well as let go.
Using Split View
After starting Slide Over, if both apps you’re utilizing assistance multitasking, after that you’ll see a nuisance take care of on the Slide Over window. Dragging this handle to the left will let you get in Split Sight method for true side-by-side multitasking.
When utilizing applications in Split Sight method, iOS 9 will keep in mind the sizes of the home windows that you’re making use of, so if, for instance, you utilize the Residence switch to go out to the Home display, then open one more application, after that return to one of the two applications that were split in multitasking method, the home windows will certainly open at the sizes they were recently. Just like Slide Over, if you desire to leave from Split Sight method, simply grab the pain handle and slide it off to the right side of the display up until the additional app vanishes from view.
Picture in Picture
Picture in Photo (generally called PIP) describes the attribute in iOS 9 that allows you overlay a tiny video clip window in addition to all various other apps as well as the House display, enabling you to keep the video playing while navigating iOS as well as going in as well as from apps.
Apps developed for iOS 9 could have this function integrateded, and all watering system applications have this attribute (including Safari, Podcasts, as well as much more). Activating PIP can typically be accomplished in one of two methods. The initial is to just play the video in a compatible application, now push the Residence button – if the developers have actually established the app as much as do so, after that the video clip will certainly reduce to a PIP home window on the Home screen.
The 2nd way is by manually switching on PIP from the video clip player window. This is how it’s done within Safari as well as other applications that use the typical gamer controls readily available in iOS. If you run into a gamer with a PIP button, you could touch this button to shrink the player down right into among the 4 edges of the screen, allowing you to keep browsing within the application or leave the application by pressing the Residence button, all while the video clip remains playable.
You could resize this small gamer by using a pinch action, play or stop the video by tapping it once after that touching the play/pause switch, stop the video by tapping the ‘X’ switch, or recover the application the video clip belongs to (and also leave PIP method) by touching the take full advantage of button.
In addition, the PIP home window could be relocated to any one of the four edges of the display by just dragging as well as launching it. You can additionally make the PIP window minimize itself even more by pressing it further in the direction of the side of the display. The sound continuouslies play, yet just a little part of the video will stay on the screen.
