Split-screen Multitasking Code Found In IOS 8

By 07:53 Tue, 20 Jul 2021 Comments

Game and app developer Steve Troughton-Smith reports that he has discovered code in the updated Springboard on iOS 8 that will allow Apple iPad tablets to run two apps side by side. The apps can split the classy screen 50/50 or 25/75.

The split-classy screen multitasking will only work in landscape mode. Once you have two apps running together they will show up as a single classy screen in the app switcher. The code isn't ready yet as running it causes one side of the classy screen to be blank and the app crashes.

This feature is reportedly aimed at the 9.7" iPad Air and a potential larger iPad, but not the iPad mini or the iPhone.

A similar feature is available on Samsung's Galaxy tablets and on the Microsoft Surface.
