(NDTV Gadgets) – Apple’s rumored iPad mini 4 might support the Split View (two apps running side-by-side) feature revealed for the iPad in iOS 9.

If true, this could also mean that the specifications of the upcoming iPad mini 4 will be on par with the iPad Air 2, which runs on the Apple A8X.

Developer Hamza Sood and 9to5Mac also report about a developer tool in El Capitan that’s designed for developers to test the responsiveness of website designs allowing the simulation of an iPad mini with Safari in split-screen view.
