This Wednesday, Google updated the iOS version of its office suite. A novelty, in particular, should please recent iPad owners: the applications are finally compatible with split-screen multitasking.
Better late than never. Almost a year after the arrival of iOS 9 and the introduction of multitasking on recent tablets marked with an apple, the iOS versions of Google Docs , Google Sheets and Google Slides are finally able to function without imposing a full screen job. This means, in practice, that it is now possible to work on a text while keeping an eye on the browser, or to fill a table while monitoring the tweets of your friends, either with a screen share of 50/50 type or with an application displayed as a banner. The only problem: not all iPads are compatible – which has nothing to do with Google.
Indeed, multitasking is resource intensive and has only been activated by Apple on four of its slates . These are the first iPad Pro of the name , its 9.7-inch little brother , the iPad Air 2 and the iPad Mini 4 .
