Multitasking revamped in iOS 7

Multitasking revamped in iOS 7:

Tim Cook just said in California that multitasking in iOS 7 has just been revamped completely. iOS will now monitor your app usage even more closely than before, meaning it will have apps like Facebook pull in news and other updates in the background, getting them all ready when you grab the app. As you can see above, there's also a new panel for app controls, new options for switching apps, and Apple has placed important settings like brightness and Bluetooth controls right there on the screen.

The iPhone will now also adjust networking conditions to save battery life (so hopefully no more running out your battery while frantically trying to connect to Wi-Fi), and there's a new notification management system that looks a lot more cleaner and straightforward than the current implementation. These new features look terrific -- we'll get a look at them running in iOS 7 hopefully later this year.
