A developer named Hamza Sood has discovered that the coming faster, slimmer iPad mini 4 will support the new split-screen view in iOS 9.
The resource file shown above from the upcoming OS X El Capitan’s Safari 9 browser shows support for a split-screen view of Safari on the iPad mini. Additionally, a developer tool in El Capitan for testing the responsiveness of website designs allows developers to simulate an iPad mini 3 (which does not support split-view) running Safari in a split-view mode. With both the testing capabilities and settings image present in the upcoming version of Safari, we believe that the functionality is coming in a future iPad mini update.
Personally I think the split-screen feature will change a lot how we work on iOS devices, but personally I think it already works great to work on iOS as it is now. I like it when I only have one app at the time on the screen. No risk for procrastination and distractions.
But of course will the split-screen view be very handy when blogging for example. Because then you can have the source article open at the same time as you writing in the second screen.
I really looking forward to iOS 9.
