This new feature would make the iPad able to display 2 or more apps on the screen with each app shown side by side and can be interact with simultaneously; like the image shown above which is a concept render by Sam Beckett. This means that one can be watching a YouTube video on one side of the screen while creating a note on Evernote on the other side of the screen.

Currently, the Microsoft Surface and the Samsung Galaxy Tabs have this feature allowing for more productive multitasking.

Although, Apple fans are not in high numbers clamoring for a feature like this, yet, it would be nice to have this feature on an iPad. 

iOS 8 is sure going to bring a good number of features when it finally lands.  Beta versions should start showing up before the WWDC2014.
