Split-screen Support and a Bigger iPad in the Offing from Apple

May 27, 2015, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

Just after the drying-up of all the Apple Watch fanfare, the Cupertino-based tech company is filling the fizz gain with its upcoming annual Worldwide Developer Conference.

The iOS 9 debut has already topped the speculation list. Now joining hands with the version iteration rumors is the possibility of a bigger iPad.

Reports say Apple will have two 12-inch versions of the iPad to show at the conference space on June 8.


Currently codenamed “J98” and “J99”, the variants are reported to come with the addition of keyboard, mouse and USB-C ports. They will also be running iOS 9, which too is expected to make its debut at the WWDC. An indigenous style could also be on the cards for the bigger version.

Another big announcement during the event could be the support for split-screen support for multi-tasking on iOS. This one is billed to be adapted for the upcoming tablet, and will have an option to work upon two or three app-windows simultaneously.

The support might also be expanded to Safari Browser, where you could simultaneously browse through multiple tabs. Besides, plans are also surfacing to impart multi-account support in its upcoming OS iteration.

A bigger sized tablet has remained the craving of iPad users for quite some time. Besides, indications are that the tablet business hasn’t been doing well enough, even with their smartphone sales settling to a dip.

With the advent of enthralling new models from the likes of Microsoft and Samsung, it’s time Apple surges the product segment with the addition of what’s in demand.
