La renovada multitarea de iPadOS 13 para iPad

Hace un par de días, durante el fin de semana, compartíamos un interesante tutorial sobre cómo usar el nuevo teclado flotante de iPadOS 13. Pues bien, hoy nos centraremos en la multitarea y, concretamente, en cómo abrir dos veces una misma aplicación e interaccionar con las dos versiones de la app al mismo tiempo.

Así es, con la llegada del renombrado iPadOS 13 a nuestras tablets ahora es posible abrir dos veces una misma aplicación. Y esto ofrecerá muchas ventajas de cara a la productividad de cada usuario . Ya no necesitarás estar cambiando constantemente entre dos páginas web de Safari, aunque esto ya era posible desde la multitarea Split View de iOS 9; ni salir de una anotación de Notas para consultar datos, ni copiar y pegar textos de un correo electrónico a otro, etc.

Las aplicaciones duplicadas se conservarán unidas en el App Switcher de iPadOS. Y esta no es la única ventaja. También podremos arrastrar texto, imágenes y archivos de una ventana de una app a la otra. ¡Se abre todo un mundo de posibilidades, amigos

iOS Multitasking (now iPadOS) is one of the most wonderful features you can find on any iPad model. It allows users to do virtually anything they want while bringing Apple’s tablet closer to computer productivity.

With multitasking we can listen to music while chatting, check social networks while reading the news, play our favorite Netflix series while sharing a tweet or write a shopping list while looking for a delicious recipe.

But not only that, but the iPadOS multitasking gives us the possibility to accelerate our actions on iPad. And year after year, Apple has been in charge of improving the multitasking to make the user experience much more complete.

But that’s not all, no sir. As with iOS 11 and iOS 12, Apple has continued to improve the method of activating the Split View and Slide Over features with iPadOS 13. This means that we now have the ability to switch between the open Slide Over apps with much more ease and guess what? we can even close the Slide Over apps, at last!

But we’ll talk about these developments at length in our annual multi-tasking guide. Now… what do you say we learn how to open two windows in one app?

You may be interested

Follow these steps to open two windows of a single app:

1. Open the app you want to duplicate.

2. Slide your finger from the bottom to enable the Dock.

3. Press and hold your finger in the same app and drag it to the side of your iPad to activate Split View. By the way, it doesn’t matter if the Haptic Touch options menu appears before you drag it, you can still drag it.

Open two windows directly from Safari

Additionally, in Safari for example, you can enable this function by holding your finger over a link , selecting the “Open in New Window” option. See image below.

And, on the other hand, there’s another method in Safari for opening a new window. Simply hold your finger over the tab button and select “Open New Window”.

To conclude…

At the moment, there are very few third-party apps on the App Store that can access this feature. But Apple will allow developers to incorporate the feature into their apps, but for now we can start with Apple’s native apps such as Maps, Notes, Messages, Safari…

The only bad thing about iPadOS (and iOS 12) multitasking is that if we want to duplicate an app, use Slide Over or use Split View we’ll need to keep those apps in the Dock. But then again, no system is perfect.
