Way back in April I wrote a lengthy article explaining how iOS 4 (iPhone OS at the time) multitasking works. Even though this is an old article, it still applies for iPad owners that have finally been graced with multitasking earlier today.
I originally wrote the article to clear up the confusion about the unique type of multitasking on iOS devices. The main myth surrounds the fast app switch bar, which people assume shows all running apps that they must constantly close to save battery life…this is not the case.
