Disable iPad's Auto Hide Dock in Home Screen - iOS 11

After updateat iOS 11.1.2 pe iPad, I noticed that Dock disappears from Home Screen, can be made visible with a swipe (Drag) from up to down, started from the bottom of the screen. That is, the same movement that I would normally do to make it visible Dock Bar in an application open on the iPad.
Initially I thought it was a feature of the new iOS and that this "auto hide" can be disabled from Settings. Surprise! In "General" → "Multitasking & Dock"There is no option to prevent it automatic hiding a Dock in Home Screen.

  • Apple are only interested in the fickle, "I want the latest - better than you!" crowd – they spend without thinking and there are more of them. Whereas they used to have to compete with Microsoft, people simply buy what looks nice. Welcome to the future. Of course, as Sarah Connor says, "The future is not set in stone." and being fickle, they may decide that Apple isn't any 'fun' anymore and at that point, all the loyal Apple fans have moved to machines which are productive instead of just vapid. I can't wait
