As you know if you’ve got it installed over the last couple days, iOS 7 brings a wealth of exciting new features. One of them is real, intelligent multitasking for all apps.
Along with the new multitasking there’s also a new method for switching between apps and quitting apps. It’s very simple and also a more elegant method than in iOS 6.
You still get to the multitasking controls via the same two methods as before: a double-tap of the home button or a four-finger swipe up from the bottom of the iPad screen. In iOS 7 rather than seeing just app icons we now see card style thumbnails of running apps. These cards even show the current state of each app.
To switch to any of the apps, just tap on its card. To quit any of the apps, just swipe up on its card.
There’s even a card for the home screen, the one you were last on before invoking the multitasking bar. A quick tap on that card takes you back to that home screen and saves a wee bit of wear and tear on the home button.
That’s all there is to it. Hope you’re all enjoying the new multitasking controls and other new iOS 7 features.
