A Multitasking window feature is something that Apple users are waiting ever since its release from Apple giants. And finally, Apple has introduced the Picture In Picture (PIP) mode in its latest update of iOS 9.

‘Picture in Picture’ is one of the finest features that iOS 9 has to offer to its iPad users. Basically, it’s a multi-tasking feature and requires minimal efforts to integrate on existing video app. This is the first time Apple has to offer something like this. You can enable this feature with the latest update of the iOS 9, and it’s only available for the iPad. This gives you a split view multitasking where you can use two apps at the same time.

A basic definition of this can be, the user can play a video or hold face-time call, and while at the same time can use other apps, games or anything else on the iPad.

It’s not necessary that all the streaming video apps support the Picture In Picture mode; this might change in the following months because this is one feature Apple needs to standardize yet. There will be lots of changes in the upcoming updates of iOS. As of now, let’s see how this PiP works on your iPad.

How to Use Picture In Picture Mode In iOS 9 On iPad

Why Use Picture In Picture Mode?

While some of the users might think that Picture In Picture is a trick by Apple to lure in more users, but trust me it’s not. Once you start using this feature, you’ll realise how amazing it is to watch videos, movies or any of such sorry without getting stuck in one app.

This feature frees you from choosing between your video apps or any other tasks you require to do it at the same time. Minimise your videos and enjoy the taste of other apps as well. That’s what Apple has simplified.

Compatibility: iPad Pro, iPad Air and iPad Mini 2 or newer.
