Can You Split Screen On Apple iPhone 8 And iPhone 8 Plus?

Posted by nik on February 1, 2019

For those that own the iPhone 8 or iPhone 8 Plus, you may want to know if you can split the screen. After all, this has been possible for some time on Google’s mobile operating system Android. It would make sense for Apple to try an stay competitive, given the prevalence of Android devices. Now that it’s possible to view things in split screen for Apple iPad and Mac, iPhone users are hoping to enjoy the same functionality on their iPhone 8 or iPhone 8 Plus.

Unfortunately, this is not possible on an iPhone 8 or iPhone 8 Plus. The iPhone 8 is not an iPad or a Mac, and it doesn’t have all of the same capabilities.

But…there are a number of apps available in the App Store that allow users to enjoy limited split screen functionality.

Split Screen Multitasking View

You see those big, bold words right above this paragraph? That is the name of a web browser you can purchase for $3.99 for your iPhone 8 or iPhone 8 Plus. It’s a solid browser that allows you to view two windows at the same time. You can use it in portrait or landscape mode, and you’re able to adjust the size of the panes.

One cool feature is when one of the panes is on one of your social media accounts. If you have an app on your iPhone 8 for that social media account, the pane will bring the app itself into the view, leaving the second pane on the side with another website. Very cool.
