How do I fix these new problems with my IPad?

Specs: Windows 11
Just downloaded 11 recently, now I have this split screen. What can I do to remedy this? Top 3/4 is darker than bottom 1/4. Also sporadically, keys need to be pressed more firmly to register. Siri does not understand me now either.

Possibly... connect to a computer and restore ipad to factory status?

Hopefully you have a backup of the system as was prior to upgrade to iOS-11x; and also even now can you achieve a backup as is? Save the previous backup(s) to a different location as in move them from the default location. Then a new backup (if allowed/possible) will be in the default location.

That way you have a choice of two backups in terms of apps etc. to restore, as you can select either?

Ignoring the Siri issue, your problem sounds like the new split screen feature. You should be able to get rid of it by moving the black bar past the top or bottom. You can read up on it here: https://www.imore.com/how-use-slide...

*Shrug* I don't know. iOS is slowly becoming Win8, only with app icons instead of tiles.

Well, OS X and iOS are two very different beasts. OS X is a complicated OS built to support PCs and their complicated features. iOS is a simplified OS designed to run on simplified devices for browsing the web and writing emails. Apple sees laptops and tablets as two separate device types whereas Microsoft does not. That's always been Microsoft's problem, but this isn't the place for that rant.

The point is Microsoft tried to simplify Windows for tablet use, and Win8 was the result. Apple has a simple OS and are adding complexity to it, and the last few updates are the result of that.
