Apple is working on multitasking on one screen for iPad
Sales of the iPad are not particularly good and continue to decline. Of course, this applies to the entire product category, which is cannibalized by the ultra-compact notebooks. This is perfectly logical: they are much heavier or bigger, but have full keyboards and operating systems. It seems Apple plans changes to its comprehensive concept for iPad, to improve sales. The next iPad Air and potential iPad Pro, which we expect long, will include arrangements for working with multiple applications on one screen, like some Android and Windows tablets. Applications will be able to occupy 1/3, 2/3 or half screen and will probably support different forms of interaction with each other. Developers will determine whether and how their applications will be scaled. All this is deeply connected with adaptive applications that Apple is trying to impose – the company prefers developers to do separate iPad and iPhone apps. According to recent rumors iPad Pro will not go into production until September 2015, so so probably we can’t see any details about the new multitasking capability on the WWDC.
