Multitasking, the simple process of being able to toggle between two or more apps may finally come to the iPhone. According to reliable sources that Apple Insider spoke to, Apple shall be incorporating a “full on” solution that will finally enable multitasking without drastic drop in battery performance. Apple Insider writes
“From a user-facing perspective, Apple plans to deliver a multi-tasking manager that leverages interface technology already bundled with its Mac OS X operating system, according to those same people. It was requested that specifics be withheld at this time, as the iPhone Software 4.0 remains under development and reportedly has a quite ‘way to go’ before it’s ready for prime time.”
Multitasking has been one of the most vocal demands from iPhone users (Adobe Flash, front-facing camera, transparent app store policies etc. being a few other things) who want to have greater freedom on what they would like to do on their iPhones without having to deal with the Apple police.
However, disclaimer’s that this is still a rumor and the ball is still very much in Apple’s court over whether this will finally be implemented.[via Apple Insider]
