iPads That Support iOS 9’s Split View, Slide Over and Picture-in-Picture Features

iOS 9 brings some useful features in iPads; but not all iPads will have these features as RAM and processing power are two major limitations. Does your iPad allow you to use new features like picture-in-picture, split view and slide over?

iPad is one of the best innovations in the history of communication technology. It is touted as the first tablet invented by Apple – credit goes to Steve Jobs. Over the time, this tablet has seen many updates and upgrades.

With the release of iOS 9, iPad performance has been enhanced. Now, users can enjoy features like Split View, Slide Over and Picture-in-Picture. The purpose of adding these features was to give multitasking facility to users.

Split View, Slide Over and Picture-in-Picture features Supported iPads

However, not all iPads have these features as RAM and processing power are not strong enough in some iPads.

Split View

How comfortable it would be if you could use two apps on a single screen? With iOS 9 on your iPad, you can view and work in two apps, which appear side-by-side on the screen. And you can effortlessly transfer content between them. But this feature is only available in iPad Air 2, iPad Pro and iPad mini 4.

iPad Air 2 boasts a tri-core A8X processor and 2GB RAM, providing enough space to run two apps side-by-side.

Slide Over

An app is covered by another app, in other words an app over another app. This Slide Over is available in a number of iPads, thanks to iOS 9, unlike the Split View. Users can enjoy this Slide Over feature in iPad Pro, iPad Air 2, iPad Air, iPad mini 4, iPad mini 3, and iPad mini 2.

Picture-in-Picture

This came from Television but now is widely used in many communication devices. In Televisions, this feature was mainly used by users to avoid advertisements. In iPad, users can use this feature to watch a video in a small window while working on any application. You can use this feature in iPad Pro, iPad Air 2, iPad Air, iPad mini 4, iPad mini 3, and iPad mini 2.

If you have any of the above mentioned iPads, you can use the three wonderful features in iOS 9.
