Multitasking at last comes with iOS 7
Yes, beware of the multitasking of iPhone and its brand new (hmm…) iOS 7 system! Apple managed to achieve what every other system before it, especially Android, has already developed and has been using for ages – multitasking! According to the specialists, the new version of Apple’s system covers the distance passed by Android with one big leap. According to us, someone has first to think of innovations and then someone else can freely copy them with a new design.
Now Apple’s iOS 7 has some brand new functions and features like a notification bar that can be pulled down while the phone is on lock screen, as well as… multitasking. If you click twice on the home button of your iOS 7 powered iPhone, you will see a list with snapshots of all the apps that are currently running on your system. You can now choose any of them or swipe between them. How original!
Apparently, after this breakthrough, Apple’s developers – real geniuses on salaries, found some strength left in themselves and decided they could take care of the battery life and performance of their masterpiece phone. They designed the operating system in such a way that it now monitors the current usage of resources and runs some of the most often used apps in the background. This may be exhaustive for the device and also energy-consuming, but there is a great advantage – if you decide that you need the app and you click on it, it will open for one second, not for two (I am not sure about the seconds, in fact I thought that iPhone needs much more time to load something).
So with the apps running in the background your RSS reader is constantly refreshing while your Facebook client is always updating the News Feed page. However, according to the specialists, this won’t affect the battery life, as the really smart iOS 7 downloads apps and updates in the background and when it is done, it notifies you – something unseen before!
