New Multitasking Gestures Seen in iOS 4.3 Beta Will Not be Enabled in the Final 4.3 Release

Share This:


Apple has let developers know that those funky new multitasking gestures we’ve seen in the iOS 4.3 beta will not remain in the final public release of 4.3.

This feature will not be enabled in iOS 4.3 for customers, but [Apple is] providing this preview to gather input on how these gestures work with [developer’s] apps.

I know many users will be disappointed to hear this and my initial reaction was to feel that way as well. Having thought about it just a bit, I’m now glad to hear this though. Letting developers have a good, long while to experiment with these new gestures should help determine how useful they really are, how easy (or not) they are to use, and how they may interfere with the operation of 3rd party apps. Hopefully this will just make them better if and when they do come to iOS.
