There’s been a lot of conversation about iPadOS’ somewhat-confusing multitasking system in recent weeks. Ryan Christoffel has put together a possible fix that makes a lot of sense to me:
My proposal for a new multitasking system employs a UI mechanic that already exists across both iPhone and iPad. Without losing any of iPadOS 13’s current functionality, it brings the iPad closer to its iPhone roots again and makes multitasking accessible for the masses.
Context menus are the key to a better multitasking system.
When you long-press an app icon in iOS and iPadOS 13, a context menu appears and provides various options. These menus, I believe, are the perfect home for multitasking controls.
