iPadOS 15 includes most of the new changes introduced in iOS 15, but there are also some iPad-specific features designed specifically for Apple’s larger screened iOS devices. One of these new features is an update for multitasking that we highlighted in our latest YouTube video.
Multitasking can be performed in the same way as it was before, but there is also a new multitasking menu that streamlines the multitasking experience and offers crosshair options to enter Split View or Slide Over with two apps. In the App Switcher view, you can also get into a quick Split View mode by dragging one app window to another, which is convenient.
Apple also added a “Shelf”
There are several keyboard shortcuts available for multitasking to make it easier to switch between windows without your fingers having to leave the keys. Many of the shortcuts use the Globe key on an attached keyboard.
These new multitasking features will take some time to get used to, but overall it seems to make multitasking more intuitive to use. Have you tried iPadOS 15? Tell us what you think in the comments.
