iOS 9 brings real multitasking to the iPadSide-by-side multitasking -- long available on Android -- comes to the iPad with iOS 9.
Lets start here on my iPad and what I'm going to do first is double tap on the home button and you'll see our new task switcher. But of course often when Im in an app like Safari and then I just wanna quickly check my messages. So now with just a single finger swipe from the side I can slide it right in with what we call slide over. And of course it's fully interactive right here. I can take a look, maybe type a response, put it right back. I'm back in Safari. Do that again. Now from the top, I can pull down and bring another application. Select bring in calendar. Of course, fully interactive so I can tap into another day. Let's bring in another app. Im gonna bring in the new notes app just like that. Now sometimes of course I wanna stay working in notes and safari both at the same time so I can just tap here on the divider and now im in split view. There both completely active in fact for the first time ever multi app multi touch. I can move them both at the same time. Notes is actually pinned to the side now, so I want to show you what happens when I switch apps. I'm just gonna move over here to photos and you just know I have photos with notes on the side, this is really great if I'm taking notes while working across a bunch of different experiences. And of course, those four finger gestures continue to work great so I can just swipe my way right back into Safari like that. I can follow links of course through my notes so let me just tap on this link and you see Safari loads it right here on the side. I can adjust the split so let me just over to my 50/50 view where I'm able to stay focused right here in these two apps side by side.
