A major feature hidden inside the iOS 8 has been discovered, as a developer reveals that the latest version of Apple’s mobile operating system includes the highly anticipated split screen, multitasking feature.
According to The Inquirer, the particular function has been found by Steve Troughton Smith, an iOS app developer from High Caffeine Content, ensuring that the iOS 8 contains such hidden codes that can enable two different apps operating simultaneously with the split screen feature.
Smith tweeted, “So… just in case there was any doubt left… iOS 8’s SpringBoard has code to run two apps side-by-side. ¼ size, ½ size, or ¾ size. He also posted a video on YouTube.
For the last few months, different rumors have been surfacing throughout the internet, stating that the iOS 8 will be equipped with the split screen feature, enabling the user to work more simultaneously. For instance, the users will be able to drag a file from one app to another.
