iPadOS 15: The App Shelf

When Apple announced iPadOS 15 and iOS 15 at WWDC in June, they introduced many new features and expanded capabilities. As my 12.9 inch iPad Pro is my primary platform, I was thrilled with the updates to the multitasking capabilities of iPadOS. While multitasking doesn’t seem to be the same as an OS like macOS, switching between different windows for the same app required more effort in iPadOS 14.

To have additional full-screen apps in iPadOS 14, it was often necessary to open the app in split-view and hide the app you wanted in a second full-screen view.
