iOS 11 has instilled the much-needed life into iPad. Highly functional features like Dock—which is very much in line with macOS Dock—seem to have stolen the sheen away from more powerful MacBook Pro. The Dock makes app switching incredibly easy and allows you to carry out multitasking with pure fun. Even better, you have the option to fully customize the Dock on your iPad in iOS 11 to suit your needs more gracefully.
You can add your favorite apps to the Dock and remove the ones that you no longer want to keep in it. If you don’t want it to show most recent used app icons, there is an option to make it show only the ones you have added to it. That’s not all; you can also rearrange app icons as desired.
