Email Advertisement If you have an iPhone, there are a lot of great ways to use it in tandem with a Mac. Staying within the Apple ecosystem lets you access Continuity features like a universal clipboard, handing off Safari links, and more. But what if you have an iPhone and Windows PC?
There are millions of people who jailbreak their devices just so they can multitask. As of this writing, all generations of the iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch cannot multitask applications that are not part of the stock firmware.
This means that you cannot download applications from iTunes App Store and minimize it run it in the background. So have many of us.
Rumors are piling up that Apple will finally allow these 3rd party applications to run in the background. On white paper, this means you can run applications such as Pandora and play games simultaneously at the expense of a generous battery tax.

How cool is that? This allows users to quickly access, or activate, background processes by simply swiping a finger or quickly tapping the home button.
Of course, this genius developer also included support for using the volume buttons and the power button. Assuming all said rumors of multitasking are true, what are your thoughts on handling backgrounded applications? Activator is there… in all its glory. One thing is certain; the current gesture API will need to be updated because one home button cannot do all the work.Watch a video on how to change your iPad's wallpaper to be a custom image.
