Solid update. Biggest feature which is invisible, is actually how they managed to expand device support even FURTHER. Even the iPhone 4s is frikkin supported!

They cannot do all this split screen on older device as they don't enough RAM, all these days Apple was proud of its OS optimization running on 512 and 1 gb ram for a active single tasks what a shame... now they follow the foot steps of others...
This is awesome I can't wait to get my hands on for my iPhone 6 Plus and iPad 4 I love Apple so much
Now you're talking that's the real multitasking not a bogus multitasking on android. Apple the best period
wait dont forget their idevices have pop-up video now, so amazing ohh boy!

I had a tweak on my jailbroken iPad 2 that let me do trully multitasking (split screen et) years before Shamsung had theirs!!!! Poor Shamsung believeres!!!! If Shamsung would said that it invented a BULB you would probably believed in that and praise Shamsung for that!!!!
Every new ios is slower and more complicated but Android is the opposite side when i upgraded my lg g2 to android 5 its get faster and smoother. ( 1 way from 1000 of iphone selling strategy).
It doesn't matter who "invented" multi tasking on tablets. What matters is that this is huge. Apple finally becomes competitive again on OS technologies. Up until lately they only had app selection to boast, year by year she leaves very little for her competitors to boast about.
Samsung had a better placing on tablet market with their note series (true multitasking, e-pen, correct aspect ratio, micro sd) but they have thrown all of these away (no epen anymore on tablets, no micro sd, mimicking of apple's aspect ratio). Good riddance I say, they take disastrous decisions time and again.
killer420, 08 Jun 2015well why can't apple use that split screen in 2007Because they just invented it :P
It didn't even exist back in 2007
Wait can they really do split screen multitasking with just 1GB of RAM?
iOS is known to flush RAM as soon as the apps are minimized to save RAM. This helps it to run on low RAM. How will they manage it now? Have they learned the importance or more RAM finally?
Split screen multitasking done right, Apple really didn't disappoint. Very nice implemention just like i expected, best in the business, very elegant.
No multitasking for iPhone 6. I think they will add that features in ios10
splitscreen was there in surface 2 which was way back...and apple brings it out as something new they discovered :P
