    Another iPadOS discovery (same warning; please ignore this if I'm late to the party).

    Once you have two apps configured it Split Screen mode, swipe up from the bottom to enter app switching mode. Your Split Screen configuration stays put. You can go to a third app, and when you're finished, switch back to the Split Screen pair just like you left it.

    I try to find joy in simple things - sometimes.

    Side note: the discoverability of more advanced iOS functions sucks. I can't bring myself to memorize all the taps and swipes, and that's coming from a tech enthusiast!

    It's becoming too complicated to simultaneously function in 3 distinct OS's

    I’m hoping iPad OS 15 will be better in this regard.

    Gotta say I love "savable" app pairs and trios on the Fold 3...

    Not to pile on, but with my iPad mini, the fact that I had to watch a video tutorial to figure out how to split apps speaks volumes on what I felt about multitasking on iPad OS.

    (Okay, I am piling on. But I hope a proliferation of dual screen and foldable devices will advance the UI in this feature)
