I upgraded to my iPad Pro from my iPad Air this week. I restored from my back up on iTunes. Secondly, my split screen/slide over will not work AT ALL. Has anyone else had this problem and how did you solve it without having to visit Apple?

iOS 9 introduces a great multitasking feature for iPad is called Split View, which allows users to run two active apps side-by-side. In iOS 10, Apple has improved Split View and enables users to view two websites side-by-side in Safari. And now in iOS 11, and iOS 12, it brings more fun to us.

However, some iPad users reported that Split View not working after downloading iOS 12/11/10. This is disappointing, and in this post, we will show you some possible fixes to solve the iOS 12/11 split screen not working problem. We hope it is helpful.
