The upcoming Apple iPad Mini 4 may come with a split-view multitasking feature, according to a new report which shows an OS X El Captain file with a depiction of the iPad Mini with two apps side-by-side. iOS 9’s marquee additions include support for the iPad’s split screen applications, a feature that’s currently available on the iPad Air 2. If Apple plans to release an iPad Mini 4 with split-screen capabilities, the new tablet will need the same specs the second-generation iPad Air 2 featured.

Although Apple CEO Tim Cook claims the company is still committed to the iPad, some wonder if the once-loved tablet can make a successful comeback.
