The iPadOS 1
Create a new window with drag and drop
iPadOS 13 continues where the drag and drop of iOS 11 stopped. In iOS 11 you can select elements, text and links and then drop them in another app.
Now you can do the same with sharing an app. This can be a note in the Notes app, an email in the Mail app or a link in Safari. The easiest way to learn this new mechanism is to use Safari as an example.
Open a website in Safari, hold a link, and move your finger. You have just grabbed a link.
Now move your finger to the right side of the screen until you see a black bar and a Safari icon .
When you lift your finger, iPadOS opens a new Safari window with the link open.
To open the window in a floating Slide Over panel, drag the link (or an element that you retrieved) to the edge of the screen, but stop before the black bar appears.
The page opens in an About slider when you lift your finger.
Similarly, you can open a link from Safari in a new full-screen window by dragging the link to the top of the screen. When you release, the Safari window will open in a new space.
Some apps (such as Safari) include an option & # 39; Open in new window & # 39; in a context menu. If you can hold down to expand or open a page in an app, you will see this option.
Manage and close Windows with App Expose
macOS users will be familiar with App Expose. Just like on the Mac, App Expose on iPadOS 13 is used to view and manage all open windows for a specific app.
To enter the App Expose mode, swipe a little up from the bottom of the screen to reveal the Dock while the app is open on the screen. You will see the icon of the current app in the Dock. Tap it.
When you tap an app icon from the Dock – while the app is already open – you are taken to the App Expose view.
Here you can see all open windows (full screen, split view and scroll over) for the app in all Spaces. Tap one of the windows to switch to it. If you want to close a specific window or space, just swipe up to close it.
It is important to note that the App Switcher also lists all open windows for all apps. You can swipe up over a single window or a room with multiple windows to close it.
What if you want to open App Expose for an app that is not on the dock? You can do this by using the new contextual app menus & # 39; s.
Go to the home screen and hold the app icon. If there are multiple windows open for the app, you will see a new option named & # 39; Show all Windows & # 39 ;. Tap it to open App Expose.

Create a new window with the Expose app
What if you want to start with a new blank window for a new blank window for an iPad given app? What if, for example, you want to create another window in Safari?
You can do this with the new App Expose function. As described above, you start by tapping the icon of the current app from the Dock (after swiping slightly up from the bottom).
Here you see a & # 39; Plus & # 39; icon in the upper right corner. Tap it to create a new blank window.
Practice makes perfect
At first glance, this may seem a bit complicated because Apple doesn't did well by emphasizing these functions. Many are hidden behind drag and drop options that do not work on all elements.
As you use iPadOS 13 and as more apps get updates that support these functions, just try tapping and holding elements of an app to see if you can drag them out to create a window . Keep experimenting and you'll find out when multitasking functions work and when they don't.
This is just one of many new features in iPadOS 13 that brings the iPad closer to a real computer.
