Multitasking Comes to iPhone 4

Comments

Apple has just announced the most sought-after feature for iPhone users: multitasking. And they've done it in style, too.

It's one of the seven new features that are coming to the iPhone OS 4, the latest version of Apple's mobile operating system that powers the iPhone, iPod touch and now the iPad.

Steve Jobs said that "we weren't first to the party, but we're gonna be the best, just like with copy and paste". And rightly so: iPhone users have waited three years for this feature, which is available on other smartphones, to come to their device.

Here's how the new feature works:
While in an app, like Mail or iPod, simply double-click the "Home" key. This will bring up a new "dock" that shows all open apps. Then, you can select the app you want, and you're taken to it. Simple, and elegant. Pure Apple.

As Jobs said, "if you don't do it right, the phone will feel sluggish." Thus, Apple has managed to devise an innovative new way of enabling multitasking, without compromising battery and performance of your iPhone.
