The new iPad dock in the iOS shows up to three recently closed apps on the right side. These apps have been separated from the other apps through a vertical line. But it is not a matter of worry as you can hide the recent apps easily.
Current Applications on the right side of the dock makes it really easier to switch between them. If you want to call up anyone, then you can quickly call it by swiping from the bottom of iPad’s screen.
If you do not prefer to do so much of app switching or multitasking, then you can just hide recent apps on the dock. Doing this will leave more space for particular apps you want to add to dock instead.

If you share your iPad with other people, then it is entirely possible that you do not want them to know what you have been doing with your tab.
