Fresh iOS 9 leak claims iPads are getting a feature Android tablets have had for years

June 5th, 2015 at 1:15 PM
iOS 9 iPad Multi-User Feature

Apple on Monday will introduce to the world iOS 9, which previous leaks have claimed will be focused more on bringing more stability to iPhone and iPad instead of on new features. However, the operating system is reportedly adding one iPad feature that Android tablet users have had for years.

Starting with Android 4.2 Jelly Bean, released in October 2012, Android tablets started supporting multiple users, a feature that would let a tablet owner easily share his or her tablet while protecting personal data.

According to 9to5Mac, iOS 9 will bring iPad users a similar functionality. The iPad multi-user mode will let users share tablets without sharing content. Each account will have access to its own app and files, including messages, mail, contacts, calendar and others.

However, the feature won’t launch with iOS 9.0 this fall, but sometime after that. Apparently, multi-user support is still in development, and might not be unveiled at WWDC next week.

Apple might be targeting education and enterprise markets with this iPad multi-user mode. Similarly, iOS 9 is said to bring over a split-screen app mode, which might be better suited for enterprise needs. These iPad-specific iOS 9 features may have been designed specifically for the rumored 12-inch iPad Pro, but they will work on older devices capable of running iOS 9.
