There is confusion about what we all should be doing. This video clears it all up. The pandemic has been good for satire :)

Can I just say, the iPad OS split-screen usability is a complete travesty. I can? Good, because I just did. How a company like Apple that prides itself on usability let this out of the barn is a mystery. I have never met anyone who likes it, or who can even explain how it is supposed to work. I finally figured out how to disable it, which was a huge relief because I kept ending up with split screens by mistake.

Onward... hope you are hanging in there, and see you [here] soon...
