What's cooking at Apple, will iPad get a split-screen mode ?

maybe with iOS 8 - Drag & Drop - similar to Microsoft Surface and Samsung Tablets

For the upcoming iOS 8 release, ​​software manufacturer Apple apparently wants to implement a key feature of the competition. According to a report from 9to5Mac, it is at least on the iPad in future the possibility to directly represent two apps side by side.


Such functions have been around for a long time in desktop operating systems. But in the mobile space this is mainly known from Samsung's smartphones and tablets as well as the Microsoft Surface. The split-screen view has the advantage to simultaneously read an article and have a second window for taking notes. Apple so obviously hopes to meet the business area in which such functions are very popular.

Whether it turns out the report as applicable, will probably turn out in a few weeks: On 2 June, the World Wide Developers Conference from Apple is launched ans the presentation of iOS 8 is expected.
