iOS 8 will introduce split-screen multitasking on Apple’s iPad

iOS 8 Spit-screen Multitasking

Some early details surrounding Apple’s upcoming iOS 8 update began leaking last month, and we can likely expect many of the remaining holes to be filled in now that Apple’s annual WWDC event is just a few weeks away. The latest news comes from reliable Apple reporter Mark Gurman, who also happens to be the source of just about everything we know thus far about iOS 8.

According to Gurman, Apple will introduce an exciting new split-screen multitasking feature in iOS 8 that will be made available only on iPad tablets. The feature will allow iPad users to run two applications side by side, which is a feature that many iPad users have been asking for since the tablet first debuted in 2010.

Apple’s WWDC keynote will take place at 1:00 p.m. EDT on June 2nd, and Apple is expected to unveil iOS 8 at that time. Apple is also expected to show off a huge OS X update and other new products as well.
