iPad split-screen multitasking

Hidden deep within the code of the iOS 8 beta is split-screen multitasking. To be clear, the presence of this code is no guarantee that the iPad will get split-screen app capability this year, but we certainly hope it does.

At the end of last year I switched from an iPhone to a Samsung Galaxy Note 3. I'll explain in more detail the reasons for my switch in a forthcoming post, but the ability to split-screen multitask was certainly one. As with much of what Samsung does, the idea is better than the execution. But still, it's a useful feature and one that I would love to see on the iPad in 2014.

Is Apple saving this for the iPad Pro?
