Apple’s upcoming iPad mini 4 is finally expected to get support for split view feature (will allow two apps to run side-by-side). Discovered in the data strings of OS X El Capitan by developer Hamza Sood and 9to5Mac, the split view feature will come in iOS 9.
Due to the current hardware limitations, the split view functionality is only present on Apple’s iPad Air 2. If this report is true, it could also mean that the upcoming iPad mini 4 would likely sport a faster processor that’s on par with the iPad Air 2.
The iPad mini 3 was a minimal upgrade with features such as Touch ID sensor, in-app Apple Pay and gold colour option. But from what we’ve known so far, the iPad mini 4 might be a little slimmer with 6.1 mm thickness. To distinguish itself from the iPad mini 3, it is also expected to take some design cues from the iPad Air 2. Apple is holding its media event on September 9 and it is where it could unveil the iPad mini 4 along with the set of new iPhones.
