The days of only being able to have one application open at a time on your phone or computer are over. Apple has just patented a new method for multitasking that will be a game-changer for seamless app switching.
We’ve all been there. You’re working on one app, but need to quickly switch to another. You can either close the first application, reopen the second one and then go back to the first one, or you can just keep both apps open, but then you’ll be limited to what you can do in each of them. It can be difficult to juggle multiple applications at one time, but Apple has come up with a solution.
Apple’s recent patent (US11698716B2) outlines a new method for multitasking on a device. This patent allows users to have multiple applications open at once, and if one application has multiple windows, users can view them all at the same time. What’s more, the patent also outlines a way to quickly switch between applications without having to close and reopen them.
This new multitasking method will revolutionize the way people use their devices. For starters, it will make it easier to multitask. Instead of having to open and close multiple applications, users will be able to access them all at the same time. And they’ll be able to quickly switch between them without having to wait for them to load.
The new multitasking method will also make it easier to use multiple applications in tandem. For example, users can view a spreadsheet while watching a video, or view a map while researching online. It’s a great way to multitask and get multiple tasks done faster.
The patent also outlines a way to quickly switch between applications without having to close and reopen them. This is a huge timesaver, as it eliminates the need to wait for an application to load. It also makes it easier to quickly switch between multiple applications without having to manually close each one.
Finally, the patent outlines a way to view multiple windows within the same application. This makes it easy to compare data side-by-side, or view two documents at the same time. It’s a great way to save time and get more work done.
The new multitasking method from Apple is a game-changer for seamless app switching. It makes it easier to multitask, faster to switch between applications, and easier to view multiple windows in the same application. While the patent does not guarantee that this technology will make it to the market, it is an exciting development that could revolutionize the way people use their devices.
