iOS 9 iPad Multitasking Feature Detailed Preview

iOS 9 iPad multitasking feature is one of the most expected features of iOS. During WWDC 2015 Apple has announced the addition of multitasking feature to the iPad.

Currently, iOS 9 is available to developers and public beta testers, so we have ability to get some info about the new feature and additional details on what Apple has brought to the table and how it work on the tablet device.

The core components on multitasking on the iPad include Picture in Picture, Slide Over and Split View. Each option lets you bounce quickly and easily between apps, but does so in different ways. Rather than one single solution, you can pick which multitasking option works best for you.

The first option is Picture-in-Picture.

Apple has added a picture-in-picture view which works similarly to the PiP function on televisions. As expected, this option allows you view one app in full screen view and overlay another app that can be tucked away in a corner. For instance, when watching a video or using a FaceTime call, the video window can be minimized to one corner of the iPad so you can easily continue to work with other apps while you watch.

The second option is Slide Over.

Slide Over allows you to work full screen in one app and access information in another app at the same time.
Like the Notification Center feature on new OS X El Captain, it can be activated by swiping from the right side of the screen, bringing up a skinny version of an app operating in its own window. It’s a perfect way to respond to a message or quickly copy a bit of text into a note without needing to divert too much attention away from the main app you’re working in.

The third option is Split View.

This option shows two apps at once and is a true multitasking feature. You can use both apps independently, they are fully functional, with each taking up half the screen.

Currently, these iPad multitasking iOS 9 features are only compatible with Apple’s stock iOS apps. Due to hardware limitations, the Slide Over and Picture-in-Picture work on the iPad mini 2/3, the iPad Air and iPad Air 2and the Split View option is only available on the iPad Air 2.

Multitasking is built into iOS 9, that is only available to developers at present time. Apple plans to launch a iOS 9 public beta in July, and the official public release is coming in the fall.
