iPad split view

Apple has really stepped up its iPadOS game in recent years, with the ability to run two apps side by side in split screen making the iPad a great productivity tool.

Both apps will be fully usable simultaneously, and you can even drag and drop files, links, images and more between the two. Give it a try with Apple’s pre-installed apps.

First, though, you’ll need to know how to open two apps simultaneously on iPad. Here’s how it’s done.

What we used

  • We used the iPad Pro (2018), but these methods will work on any iPad Pro, the 5th generation iPad and later, the iPad Air 2 and later, and the iPad Mini 4 and later running on iPadOS 15.

The Short Version

  • Open your first app and access the multitasking toolbar
  • Open your second app
  • Resize your split screen apps
