The latestcropofiOS8 rumor reporting claims that iOS 8, when used on the iPad, will have multitasking support for side-by-side application usage. For an immediate feel for what that might look and behave like, check out OS Experience, a jailbreak tweak that adds windowing and side-by-side multitasking to jailbroken iPads.
While this sounds plausible, we were also toldseveralweeks ago that OS X 10.10, because it is such a huge redesign, required the teams at Apple to take focus away from iOS and concentrate on 10.10. This also sounds just as plausible, but the two don’t mix.
Listening to this week’s The Prompt, the gentlemen discuss the ramifications of iOS 8 multitasking implemented in this manner, this idea of side-by-side apps. They are apprehensive about such a thing, and discuss the many caveats and complications that arise from such a large restructuring of the iOS paradigm. You know, the paradigm in which the home button takes you home, the simple one. Gleaning from this conversation had by three people who are not on the Apple design team, you could say that such a feature would be very complicated to implement.
So as the title of this post asks, which is it? Are we getting a massive update to OS X, or a completely new multitasking implementation in iOS? Do you not also get the feeling that rumors have no memory for previous rumors?
Ultimately, Beats solves a lot of problems for Apple: it provides a meaningful revenue stream, it fixes their streaming music hole, and it’s an aspirational music brand that is increasingly rivaling Apple itself with the next generation.
Why, then, the angst among Apple fans in particular?
I don’t often link to Gruber as everyone has already read him, but this is worth repeating. Women have a hard enough time in tech; the little things that make it hard are so numerous (and sometimes innocuous) that paying attention to every thing is worth it.
