  • Tap the Multitasking button at the top of the screen.
  • Tap the Split View button or the Slide Over button. The current app moves aside and your Home Screen appears.
  • Tap on the Safari app on your Home Screen.
    • If you chose Split View, the second app appears side-by-side with the current app.
    • If you chose Slide Over, the second app opens full-screen and the current app moves to a smaller window that you can move to the right or left side of your screen.
