Apple’s iPad software is taking a huge step forward with multitasking, which the company just announced as a feature of iOS 9. This isn’t a feature new to tablets—we’ve seen in over on Samsung devices, and also from Microsoft. But, finally, Apple is giving iPad users the ability to run multiple apps on the same screen.
You simply double tap the home button and you’ll see the brand new task switcher. Choose an app, and then execute a new feature known as SlideOver, which allows users to quickly swipe in another app from the side. And then you can pull down from the top and bring in other applications, which are all fully interactive. Apple show how someone might browse the Web while also having a conversation through Messages.
