Apple expanded the capabilities of the iPad Dock with the release of iOS 11. iPad owners can now store up to 15 apps or folders in their Dock and access it anywhere on their device. The Dock also includes up to 3 suggested apps based on recently used apps, location and Continuity. This means apps you recently opened on your iPad or other connected devices, such as your iPhone or Mac, will also appear at the end of your Dock. You can toggle both suggested and recent apps by navigating to via Settings > General > Multitasking & Dock.
