Question: How to actually close a slide over app or open in full screen from Slide Over
Is there a way to actually close an app opened in Slide Over? For example: I have Safari opened full screen and open Mail in Slide Over. Now I want to open mail in full screen. There is no efficient way to do this. If you swipe right to hide the Mail Slide Over app then press the Mail icon on in the dock, only the Slide Over Mail app appears.
The only way I have found to do this is to convert the Mail Slide Over to Split View then slide to close it. Or use the app switcher and find mail there. Or back out to the home screen and open mail there. BUT iOS remembers that Mail is in Slide Over mode so any attempts to open Mail while another app is open will result in the Slide Over version of Mail opening from now on.
I must be be missing something. How do you close a slide over app (not hide it) or convert an open slide over to full screen?
