    i have the mini 2 and it works fine for me. Not sure why Apple said it won't work unless u have the iPad Air 2 or newer models.

    The screenshot you've shared is of 'Slide over', which is not the same as 'Split View'. Slide Over actually pauses the background application while the slide over is active. Split view actually lets you use both applications at the same time.

    Also note that the info the left side is being cut off from the app to the right. So.... Maybe not so useful

    Would probably cause the 1st gen mini to crash

    I don't think the 1st gen mini can do it at all.

    Imagine if Apple enabled SplitView for the Air 1. There will be so many disgruntled users... Yet users feel adamant that Air 1 should have it.
