How to move multiple apps at the same time on iPhone and iPad (iOS 11)

Apple officially introduced iOS 11 back in June following months of endless rumors and speculation. Apple’s next version of iOS is not a significant update that will change how we have been using our iPhone and iPad since the days of iOS 10. However, iOS 11 comes with a lot of new features that encourage you to upgrade. One such feature is Drag and Drop

With iOS 11, Apple has poured a lot of love into its iPad, which was completely ignored in iOS 10. Drag and Drop feature really shines on the iPad, allowing users to easily drag content from one app and drop it in another.

In this guide, we will go through the steps to move multiple apps at one go on your iPhone and iPad running iOS 11. Before we move forward, keep in mind that, iOS 11 is still in beta, so it may include errors and bugs that make your experience less joyful.
