iOS 8 Split-Screen Multitasking Feature Confirmed By Beta 1 Code Dump

Apple’s iOS 8 keynote at WWDC last Monday didn’t quite reveal the entire story and since Apple rolled out that first beta we have figuring it out on our own that many less obvious features have been packed inside the new iOS. Split-screen multitasking was one of the rumors prior to WWDC and we thought it failed to materialize as there was no mention but we have found that this feature could well be on its way now.

It was obvious that every single feature wouldn’t be dealt with at the keynote due to the paucity of time and considering that devices such as iPhone 6 and iWatch are yet to be released, we can understand that there was a need to keep things under the wraps for the time being. But even then there were plenty of references to unannounced gadgets and features. The new version of Xcode hints towards a larger iPad the multi screen features have never been made more sense before.

Another feature has been spotted inside iOS 8’s code by an all-round Apple guy Steven Troughton-Smith which is going to allow the SpringBoard to run two apps alongside each other as well as split the display space 50-50. However this feature might only become available in the iPad Air due to the comparative lack of display real estate.

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
