“iOS 8 is likely to supercharge the functionality of Apple’s iPad with a new split-screen multitasking feature, according to sources with knowledge of the enhancement in development,” Mark Gurman reports for 9to5Mac.
“These people say that the feature will allow iPad users to run and interact with two iPad applications at once,” Gurman reports. “Up until now, each iPad application either developed by Apple or available on the App Store is only usable individually in a full-screen view.”
Gurman reports, “In addition to allowing for two iPad apps to be used at the same time, the feature is designed to allow for apps to more easily interact, according to the sources. For example, a user may be able to drag content, such as text, video, or images, from one app to another. Apple is said to be developing capabilities for developers to be able to design their apps to interact with each other.”
