Apple has been tipped to introduce a split-screen mode to the iPad and iPhone, but the feature isn’t part of its new iOS 8 platform — even though there are hidden references to it in the code base.

That hasn’t stopped developer Steve Troughton-Smith from pulling together a video that teases how the feature might work on Apple’s tablet — as 9to5Mac reports. Troughton-Smith edited the iOS 8 iPad Simulator to enable a two-finger swipe that allows the Safari browser to take up 75 percent, half, or 25 percent of the screen.

Another conference. “Great.”

This one’s different, trust us. Our new event for New York is focused on quality, not quantity.

The feature may never make it to a consumer release, or Apple might be saving it for a future iteration of iOS — or even new larger devices — but this is a tantalizing glimpse, nonetheless.
