Apple iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus: A Guide to Split Screen View

Hey there! Today, I want to talk to you about a cool feature on the Apple iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus: split screen view. It’s a nifty tool that lets you use two apps side by side on your device. Pretty cool, right?

So, how do you use this feature? Let me break it down for you. When you’re using your iPhone 7 or iPhone 7 Plus, you can have two apps open at the same time. This is great for multitasking and getting things done more efficiently.

To start using split screen view, all you need to do is open an app on your device. Once you have the app open, swipe up from the bottom of the screen to bring up the app switcher. You’ll see a bunch of app cards stacked on top of each other. Find the app you want to use in split screen view and drag it to the left or right edge of the screen.

Now, you’ll see a gray bar in the middle of the screen, indicating that you can slide the app to the left or right to make it larger or smaller. Once you have the first app in place, tap on the app switcher again and choose another app. Drag the second app to the opposite side of the screen, and you’ll see it appear in split screen view.

Alright, now you have two apps open side by side. You can interact with both apps simultaneously, whether you want to write an email while looking up information online or watch a video while scrolling through your social media feed. It’s all about convenience and saving you time.

If you want to make one app larger and the other app smaller, just slide the gray bar in the middle of the screen towards the app you want to focus on. You can also swipe the gray bar all the way to one side to close the second app and go back to using just one app.

And that’s all there is to it! Now you know how to use split screen view on your iPhone 7 or iPhone 7 Plus. It’s a handy feature that allows you to be more productive and make the most out of your device. So go ahead, give it a try and see how it can enhance your multitasking experience. Happy app-ing!

Hey there! So, for the longest time, Apple was all about those small phones. Back in 2007, their original iPhone with a 3.5″ display was considered pretty darn big. They stuck with that size until 2011 when they finally upgraded to a 4″ display, keeping the width the same. But while Android phones were getting bigger and bigger, Apple had a decision to make. And in 2014, they made it. They introduced the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus, with larger displays than ever before. And from then on, Apple continued with the trend. The iPhone 6 to the iPhone 8 all had 4.7″ screens, while the Plus models had 5.5″ displays. But when Apple decided to totally revamp the iPhone, they went even bigger. The iPhone XS Max now boasts a whopping 6.5″ display.

Now, with these larger screens, Apple didn’t just stop at the size. They added some cool new features to make the most of that extra space. Whether it’s viewing more information or adding more apps to your home screen, the larger displays on these newer iPhones give you some handy extra functionality. Take, for example, Split Screen View. When the iPhone 6 Plus came out, you could finally view multiple apps at once with Split Screen View. And now you can do the same on the iPhone 6 Plus, iPhone 7, iPhone 7 Plus, iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus, iPhone X, iPhone XS, and iPhone XS Max.

Now let’s talk about why Split Screen View can be a real game-changer for your productivity, especially if you’re trying to do some serious work on your phone. And of course, I’ll show you how to use it on your iPhone.

Using Split Screen View

Getting Split Screen View set up is a breeze. All you have to do is unlock the rotation on your phone and switch to landscape mode. To unlock rotation on your iPhone 7 or iPhone 7 Plus, just unlock it and swipe up from the bottom. In the top right corner of the menu, there’s a little lock with an arrow around it. Tap it once to turn off rotation lock, then swipe down to close the menu. Now, when you turn your iPhone 7 or iPhone 7 Plus sideways, most apps – especially the ones made for iPhone – will show more information on the screen. That includes Mail, Calendar, Stocks, Messages, and Clock.

For example, instead of Mail just showing you a single column of emails or the text of one email, it’ll display both the text of the email and your inbox side by side. And Stocks can go from listing your portfolio to showing you a detailed performance chart for a specific stock.

How to Disable Split Screen View on Your iPhone

Hey there! If you’re not a fan of the way your iPhone switches up its display when you tilt it, don’t worry. Although Apple doesn’t give you a direct option to turn off Split Screen View, there are a few tricks you can try. If you’re itching to get rid of the newer view, just follow the steps below to effectively disable split screen on your iPhone or iPhone 7 Plus.

  1. First, switch on your iPhone 7 or iPhone 7 Plus.
  2. Next, open the Settings app.
  3. Now, select “Display & Brightness.”
  4. Tap on “View” under the “Display Zoom” section.
  5. Choose “Zoomed.”
  6. Tap on “Set.”
  7. Finally, select “Use Zoomed.”

Keep in mind that your iPhone will need to restart for the changes to take effect. Once your iPhone has restarted, apps will no longer adjust their display when you switch to landscape mode.

Alternatively, you can also keep your rotation lock enabled to make sure you never enter Split Screen View when you turn your phone to landscape mode.
