Feature was left out of the WWDC keynote, but could find its way into the public release of iOS 8

It was reported last month that Apple is working to bring split-screen functionality to its iPad family of tablets. Split-screen capabilities have been integrated into tablet from Microsoft and Samsung for quite some time, and both companies have used it in advertising to show that the iPad is not quite up to par when it comes to multitasking duties.
 
Although the following video is in no way endorsed by Apple, Sam Beckett provided this demonstration of how the functionality could be enabled on iPads.
 

Now, developer Steven Troughton-Smith has discovered code in iOS 8 Beta 1 that enables multiple split-screen modes on iOS devices. He tweets:
 
 
Apple showed off numerous new features built into iOS 8 at WWDC, but the split-screen mode was curiously left out of the presentation. However, it’s possible that Apple is saving the feature for its “One more thing” when the next generation of iPads are inevitably released in the fall.
