OK, I have a new 11” iPad Pro that is gorgeous. But... I’m so bothered to find out that Apple have still refused to make split screen function properly. (edit: and by this I mean the feature works as designed, but the design is so absolutely awful when used in portrait mode that it could be said it doesn't properly work) Just look at this screenshot. Is there honestly anyone who would ever want to use two tall skinny apps in that orientation? edit: and here is how it could be better: Of course I know all the caveats, workarounds, and “you are holding it wrong” answers. But split screen is utterly useless when holding the iPad in portrait... and it shouldn’t be. End of story. The new 11” with wider screen ratio just exacerbates the issue; it is truly awful design on the part of Apple software engineers. All they would need to do is allow for the split line to go horizontally across the screen so two apps could be top/ bottom.
