#1. Use Drag and Drop in iOS 11 on iPad
With Drag and Drop functionality being a reality, you can easily drag any item like the app, text, photos, URLs, documents and a lot more between apps with the help of the Dock or Home button.
If you want to drag anything, just highlight it, then tap and hold on the item. Then bring up the Dock by swiping up from the bottom of the screen and drop the item in the app in question.
Let’s take another example.
There is another way you can bring more convenience into the way you use drag and drop functionality. When you have selected any item to drag, use other finger/s to access App Switcher while still holding on the original item and navigate using your secondary finger to locate the app you want to drop the item in and then jump over to carry out the task.
Note: You can use Spotlight to quickly find the app you want to drop the content in.
