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.

Using Siri Search / Spotlight on your iPad

When I search my iPad, I am usually only looking for apps, such as CONTACTS. In IOS 10, I had turned off the other searches so only apps came up when I did a search. With iOS 11, Apple boasts that Siri can search deeper into your iPad’s data to help you find what you’re looking for (internet references, mail, podcasts, notes etc.)

If you don’t want Siri Search/Spotlight to bring up every possible item with the word CONTACTS, then you can filter the search in Settings. Of course you can also tell Siri , ” Show Joe Blow in CONTACTS” and Joe Blow’s contact page will open… pretty cool.
