Apple's secret iOS 8 split-screen multitasking feature for iPad apps was revealed in a video. Watch the video demonstration of iOS 8 iPad split-screen multitasking feature below.

It is widely reported last month that Apple is allegedly working on a secret split-screen multitasking feature for iPad apps. And this secret feature is said to come with a new version of iOS 8.

This feature will be "the key productivity function on the Microsoft Surface," according to 9to5Mac. Apple was expected to announce this feature last week at its annual WWDC event. But Apple did not announce it. However, the several code references to this iPad split-screen multitasking feature have been found across the iOS 8 Software Development Kit.

But a video demonstration of this secret feature has been revealed by a developer Steven Troughton-Smith. He somehow managed to hack the iOS 8 iPad Simulator on which this feature was shown working partially.

The functionality of this secret feature is not unlocked completely. Video shows two different apps running side by side with Safari visible on half of the display. But this video proves that Apple is internally testing this new feature. And Apple is also said to be internally testing two finger swipe gesture control too.

iOS 8 iPad split-screen multitasking feature will allow the iPad screen "to be adjusted for apps to either take up 1/4 or 3/4 of the display, with the secondary app taking up the other 3/4 or 1/4 respectively."

 

Watch below the video that shows Apple's secret iOS 8 split-screen multitasking mode in action on the iPad simulator. 

Apple is all set to launch iOS 8 this fall. But Apple has not yet officially confirmed that it is working in iOS 8 iPad split-screen multitasking feature. Hence, we do not know that when this feature will be launched. It can come with iOS 8.1, iOS 9 or with a larger iPad. And it is also possible that Apple will completely cancel to launch this feature.
