iPad Mini 4 Will Support Split-View Apps

El Capitan file points to iPad mini 4 with split view

One of the Ios 9’s best feature for iPad users is Split View multitasking. It lets you run two apps side-by-side.

On the other hand, because of processor restrictions of more established iPad models, the full 50/50 split-view usefulness is just present on the iPad Air 2.

Thanks to the Air 2’s A8X processor. But finally, with the assistance of developer Hamza Sood and 9to5mac’s developer it is found that this feature might soon be extending to the iPad mini 4 too.

9to5mac has found a resource file from the upcoming OS X El Capitan’s Safari 9 browser.It shows the support for a split-screen view of Safari on the iPad mini.

9to5 mac also reports that, “Additionally, a developer tool in El Capitan for testing the responsiveness of website designs allows developers to simulate an iPad mini 3 (which does not support split-view) running Safari in a split-view mode.”

The iPad Air 2 is the sole iPad in Apple's lineup that conveys its most recent A8X processor combined with 2GB of RAM.

But that may not be the case from now on. If Apple’s iPad mini 4 can run split-screen apps, then it will likely be equipped with a faster processor and will have much better specs overall.

We will be able to discover more about the iPad mini 4 and iOS 9’s public release date at Apple’s iPhone event.

The event is scheduled on Wednesday, September 9.
