When Apple added Split View and Slide Over multitasking to iOS, both features were appreciated by many iPad Pro users. But it turns out that not everybody needs or wants to multitask on their iPad Pro tablets.\nFor some users multitasking can actually be annoying since tapping and swiping from the right side of the iPad Pro\u2019s screen can inadvertently activate iOS\u2019 multitasking feature.\nIf you\u2019re one of those users, don\u2019t worry. It\u2019s very easy to disable multitasking on the iPad Pro.\nHow to disable Split View and Slide Over multitasking on the iPad Pro\nHere\u2019s how you can quickly disable multitasking on your iPad Pro:\n1. Open the Settings app.\n2. Tap on General.\n3. Tap on Multitasking.\n4. Tap the \u201cAllow Multiple Apps\u201d switch to the off position.\n\nNow when you swipe from the right side of your iPad Pro\u2019s screen, Slide Over and Split View multitasking won\u2019t be activated.\nWhy disable multitasking on the iPad Pro?\nSome folks might think it\u2019s crazy to disable multitasking on the iPad Pro. But as I noted above, the feature isn\u2019t necessary for all users and for some of us it\u2019s a good idea to turn it off.\nPersonally, I\u2019ve found that that the multitasking feature on my 12.9-inch iPad Pro just annoys me. For example, when I read in the iOS Kindle app I\u2019ve found that having multitasking on is a headache. I tend to swipe from the right to turn a page in my Kindle books, so I don\u2019t want to inadvertently activate Slide Over while I\u2019m reading.\nI also read comic books on my iPad Pro, and I\u2019ve encountered the same problem if multitasking is on. Each time I go to move to a new page or panel, multitasking will start to activate. So, unless I actually need multitasking for something, I keep it off on my iPad Pro.\nBear in mind that I don\u2019t work on my iPad Pro. For work I have a 27-inch, 5K iMac. So multitasking on the iPad Pro just doesn\u2019t do much for me, I prefer macOS on my iMac when I need to get work done. Your mileage may vary, of course, and the iPad Pro can be a great productivity tool for work for some users.\nDon\u2019t get me wrong, I think the iPad Pro\u2019s Slide Over and Split View multitasking are very useful features. But they just aren\u2019t necessary for all of us, at all times. So it\u2019s great that they can be disabled for folks who don\u2019t need them.\nDid you miss a post?
