In iOS 11, rather than copy­ing and past­ing things or us­ing the Share sheet to send things from one app to another, you

can drag and drop them. This is a fea­ture that has to be built into an app, so some of your apps may not sup­port it – at least not yet.

Try hold­ing your fin­ger on an item in a list or some text, for ex­am­ple, and wait for a mo­ment. If it’s drag­gable, you’ll usu­ally see it lift off the page. If not, you could let the app’s de­vel­oper know you’d find it use­ful.

Many of the apps that come with iOS al­low you to drag and drop. Here you’ll learn about dif­fer­ent ways you can use it to save time.

Of­ten you’ll use drag and drop when you have two apps run­ning side by side, but that’s not the only way you can use it. Once you’ve got hold of an item, you can use your other hand to in­ter­act with your iPad as usual, switch­ing apps and nav­i­gat­ing to the right place be­fore drop­ping the item. Drag and drop makes us­ing your iPad a lot more com­fort­able.
