IOS Dock

February 19, 2023

The iOS Dock is a feature in iOS, the operating system used on Apple’s iPhone and iPad devices. The Dock lets users quickly access their most frequently used apps and features from any screen.

The iOS Dock can be accessed by swiping up from the bottom edge of the screen on an iPhone with Face ID or by swiping up from the bottom edge of the screen on an iPad or an iPhone with a home button. The Dock can hold up to 15 apps, and users can customize the apps that appear on the Dock by dragging and dropping them to and from the Dock. Users can add or remove apps to the Dock from the home screen.

The iOS Dock also includes a feature called “Recent and Suggested apps”, which suggests the apps the user has been using recently and makes it easy to switch between them.

In addition, the Dock can also be used as a multitasking feature on an iPad, allowing users to open multiple apps at once and switch between them easily using a gesture called “Slide Over” or “Split View” and also “picture in picture” feature, where a video can play in a small window while the user is using other apps.
