iPad Pro: 9 gestures you need to know



Apple continues to eliminate the home button from iOS devices across its setup. The latest victim is the new iPad Pro, which now has sharp features and Face ID. The problem with leaving the home button behind is that we must now revive how to navigate on iPad and iOS using gestures.

During the setup process, Apple walks through a quick tutorial that shows you how to get to the home screen, but it stays there. There are many more gestures that you need to learn to quickly move around the new iPad Pro.

Tap to Wake Up

The new Liquid Retina display can wake up with a single tap on the screen. It's an easy way to wake up your iPad Pro to control the time, read messages or adjust media playback.

Wake up and unlock

Once you've watched your iPad Pro with a faucet, swipe up from the bottom of the screen to go to the home screen.

View app dock

However, to view the app, swipe up from the bottom of the screen, about an inch or so. The app dock will pop up, so you switch between apps or drag an icon to either side of the screen to start split screen.

Return to home screen

At any time, you can come back to the Home screen of your iPad Pro by swiping up from the bottom of the screen in a fast motion. I have found that the best way to do that is to swipe halfway up the screen in a fast motion.

App Switcher

To switch between open apps, see App Switcher with a top-down swipe at the bottom of the screen. But instead of doing it in a fast motion that is the case when you return to the home screen, pause a short second with your finger on the screen. As you raise your finger, you'll see thumbnails of current open apps and saved spaces where you may have used screen mode.

Force Close Apps

To force close apps, open App Switcher and then start slipping on the thumbnails of the app. You can close multiple apps at once, to speed up things if needed.

Fixed app switching

See the box at the bottom of the screen? It's a constant reminder of where to use gestures to navigate iPad Pro. It is also the same place you can use to quickly switch between apps. Tighten right in the field to return to the last used app. As you scroll through apps, you can also drag left over the bar. Nice, huh?

Control Center

iPad Pro Control Center is located in the upper right corner of the screen. Swipe down to get all the different controls you have set for Control Center, no matter what app you are currently using.

Message Center

You can still see your messages and today's view with a swipe down from the screen tip – save to the right-hand corner.

Having mastered these gestures, you should not have any trouble getting around iPad Pro as one, yes, a professional.
