How to move items between apps on iPad | Laptop News

Learn how to transfer items between apps on your iPad easily using features like Slide Over and a few simple gestures.

One of the nice things about iPadOS is the built-in ability to move items between apps. With a simple gesture, you can easily pull pictures from documents into emails or share links from websites to messages. Here’s how.

Before we start, it’s important to understand how to open apps in Split View or Slide Over.

How to open things in Split View or Slide Over in iPadOS

  1. Open an app
  2. Tap the Multitasking button (…) at the top of the screen
  3. Tap the Split View or Slide Over button
  4. When your home screen appears, tap the second app you’d like to open

If you select Split View, the second app will open side-by-side with the first app. If you choose Slide Over, the second app will open full screen, while the first will appear as a smaller pop-out.

Now that you know how to open two apps concurrently, you’re ready to learn how to move items between them.

Copy an item between open apps on iPadOS

  1. Open your apps in Split View or Slide Over
  2. In the app you wish to transfer from, tap and hold on the item you wish to transfer
  3. When the item lifts up, you can then drag it into the second app

You can move multiple items at once, too.

You can also select multiple items when choosing to move between apps.

Once you’ve selected your first item to move, tap any additional items with another finger. A badge will pop up to indicate the number of items you’re currently selecting. Then, you can just slide them over like a single item.
