Nice video, but maybe you should point out that split view only works on later iPads, my first generation iPad Air for example can't do it.

Hi Colin, Thanks - Yes, you are quite right. I should have mentioned that.

How would you open an application (compatible) into split view if it is not on the dock; rather, in a folder on the IOS desktop?

Hi Joseph, This is not a simple process. I would usually open the first app as normal and it will appear in the right hand side of the dock as a recently opened app. Then launch the second app in full screen. Then drag the first app from the right hand side of the dock to create my split view.

You can also put a folder into the dock and open apps into split view straight from the folder.

That’s a great solution John. One for the newsletter I think!

Thanks Don. That's my approach too. Thought there would be an easier way. Apple makes the most amazing products, yet as in this case sometimes overlooks the obvious help for users, e.g. no search function for emoticons (now numbering in hundreds); same for Messages.

Love the tutorials, but why can't I turn captions off? If I turn them on there are double captions. If I turn them off there are still huge captions that often obscure significant things. It is frustrating that your introduction video says you can turn captions on or off, but you can't on any video I have watched so far.
