Apple's iPads are about to become multitasking powerhouses much more capable of challenging laptops.
New screenshots published by AppleInsider from the latest iOS 11 software show four different windows running on the iPad's screen at once. Previously, Apple's iPads were limited to running just two apps side by side: one in a primary window and one pulled out next to it. If you wanted to watch a movie, too, you could pop that out.
As this screenshot from AppleInsider shows, iPads that run iOS 11 will soon be able to run all sorts of apps. In this picture alone we can see Slack, Safari, a video player and the calendar. The news here is the calendar widget (or presumably any other one) being popped out from the right side of the screen.
At the Apple Worldwide Developers Conference on Monday, Apple discussed many other features coming to iOS 11 on the iPhone and iPad this fall, including a revamped control center that provides quicker access to media controls, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and other shortcuts, as well as much faster app-switching capabilities.
As a quick reminder, the iPhones and iPads that will support iOS 11 can be seen by clicking here.
Apple did not immediately respond to CNBC's request for comment.
