One of the drawbacks to iOS 8 is that you can only use one app at a time. This is compared to other platforms, like Microsoft’s Windows platform, that allows for more than 1 app to run simultaneously, kind of like a desktop operating system where you can have multiple apps running at once.
However that is supposed to change with iOS 8, at least according to previous rumors which suggested that iOS 8 would be bringing split screen multitasking to the iOS platform. Given that iOS 8 is expected to be unveiled at WWDC 2014 which is kicking off next week, we expect that we would learn more then, or would we?
According to a recent post by the New York Times’ Brian X. Chen, he claims that split screen multitasking will not be debuting at WWDC 2014. He claims that while the feature will be a part of iOS 8, it isn’t ready for show yet, meaning that if you were hoping to catch a glimpse of it next week, you’d be out of luck.
In fact according to a previous rumor, it has been suggested that some iOS 8 features are being delayed as Apple has pulled engineers from the iOS 8 team to work on OS X 10.10, kind of like how OS X’s team members were pulled to help get iOS 7 ready on time. The report stated that the “missing” features would then be introduced in iOS 8.1, which is reportedly already being worked on. In any case we guess we will learn more next week, so check back with us then for the details.
