    Now, all we need to do is tap the menu button.
    It's on the lower-left side. We'll note that "Phone" has an "X" on the far-right side, which closes the Phone application. "Contacts" also has an "X". However, "Messages" has the icon with two boxes that indicates that this option will give us the split-screen mode. That is for what the two rectangles are.
