And finally multitasking comes to iPhone via iPhone OS 4.0 but right now that superpower is possessed only by Apple’s own apps, and cannot be extended to third-party applications.
“Apple has touted push notifications as superior to true multitasking, which, to Apple’s way of thinking, drains battery life and slows down device performance.But as we all know, it’s a classic Apple stratagem to downplay a feature right up to the very moment the company unveils it. We’re willing accept a pretty broad definition of multitasking: it could be as simple as making it easier for apps to save their state when you quit them, so that you can relaunch right where you left off, says PC Advisor.
