Drag & Drop Features

There is no denying the fact that touch screens have offered a better form of close interaction with various content in comparison to using the cursor or trackpad. In spite of the same, the potential ability for dragging and dropping various items across the different apps was quite a laidback feature in the iPads. In the iPads, the touch screens, therefore, were the best-suited options. However, this feature gets changed in the latest iOS 11 version. It comes with a robust option to drag & drop that is provided in the form of touch enhancements.

This feature could be used for doing several activities like moving the texts, images and even URLs among different apps on the device. The unique feature of the drag & drop of the content across not just the current apps, but also the ones present in the App Switcher has been made possible with the help of the multi-touch feature of the iOS 11 version.
