How to bring up the iOS multitasking bar in iOS iPad Simulator


If you're using the retina iPad simulator you will end up with the home-button-less version. Go to Hardware->Device->iPad and you'll get a simulator that has a home button you can double click.

You can also use the home button shortcut (default is cmd+shift+h) and double hit that and it will trigger the multitasking bar


The home button is now hidden from the iPad simulator. However the home button may be triggered by the following command:

Apple (command) + Shift + H

you should do this command 2 times - just like pressing home button twice.

This will show the multi-task bar


The simulator hides the bezel if it thinks there's not enough room to display it. You can try rotating it, or setting it to a smaller scaling.

But you can also hit the home button via the keyboard shortcut cmd+shift+h; this also works for homebutton double-clicking.
