iPhone OS 4.0 To Feature Exposé-Like Multitasking?
According to AppleInsider, iPhone OS 4.0 will finally include support for running multiple third party applications at the same time. The rumor suggests that by hitting the home button twice, users will see an Exposé-like interface displaying the icons of running apps, allowing the user to quickly switch to any of those apps.
It is possible multitasking will not appear until Apple introduces the next iPhone model, rumored to come out in June, and may only be available on the new model. Users who have jailbroken their phones in order to achieve multitasking have noticed that the built-in memory on some models is just too limiting to keep very many apps running simultaneously. Chances are, the iPad specs are already beefy enough to handle the load, and the next iPhone will likely be as powerful.
