Report: iOS 8 to offer split-screen multitasking on iPad

Apple will likely add split-screen multitasking to iPad in iOS 8, 9to5Mac reports. Sources claim that iPad users will be able to use two iPad applications at the same time. The new feature may also allow users to drag content — text, images, or video, for instance — from one app to the other. According to the report, multitasking has been designed with the 9.7” screen in mind, and it’s unknown if the feature would be intact on an iPad mini. The feature would work “exclusively” in landscape mode, and could feature prominently in the long-rumored larger iPad.
