    With iOS 9, Apple introduced a couple of new multitasking features for the iPad, like the ability to run two apps side by side. Now Google has updated its Chrome browser to be able to take advantage of these new features.

    Besides being able to use the Split View mode mentioned earlier, Chrome on iPad also supports Slide Over, and Picture-in-Picture, which lets you browse websites and watch a pop-up video simultaneously. However, you should know that Split View only works on iPad Air 2, iPad mini 4 and the iPad Pro.

    The iOS version also brings the Autofill feature, according to a new entry on Google's Chrome blog:

    "Often on the web, we’re doing a ton of things at once -- reading up on an exotic travel location, catching up on social media or booking a hotel. With that in mind, we’re introducing Split View for your iPad (Air 2 or mini 4) to our latest version of Chrome.

    We’re also working to make it easier to make purchases on the go. We’re shopping more often than ever on our phones and tablets, but it can be a pain to re-enter credit card information every time you buy something. That’s why we’re bringing Chrome’s Autofill from desktop and Android to iOS. No matter what device you use, you can shop for what you need easily and securely

    The most recent version of Chrome for iOS also comes with improved handling of RTL languages. Go ahead and follow the link from below in order to download the updated app on your iOS devices.
