At WWDC 2015, Apple introduced iOS 9, the latest version of iOS. The updated version of the operating system, offers new features, apps, and enhancements. One of which is multitasking. Included in iOS 9’s multitasking capabilities is a split screen feature called “Split View.”
Here’s Apple‘s description on multitasking for the iPad:
Do this. While you do that.
Your iPad is great for work. And for play. For creating incredible designs or powerful presentations. For building fun slideshows or video chatting with loved ones. And for tons of other stuff. Now you can make even better use of its large screen to do two of those things — at the same time.
Now you can open a second app without leaving the one you’re in. So you can quickly browse the web, respond to a text message, or jot something down in a note, then slide that app away and get back to the one you wereusing before.
With Split View on iPad Air 2, you can go a step further and have two apps open and active at the same time. Work on a sketch with the reference photo beside it. Or write a paper while copying citations from a book in iBooks. When everything you need is right in front of you, it’s easier to focus.

While using FaceTime or watching a video, press the Home button and your video screen scales down to a corner of your display. Tap to open a second app, and your video continues to play — even while you use the other app.So keep watching your favorite TV show while you reply to the email that just came in.
Apple will be rolling out iOS 9 to the iPhone and the iPad in July.
