One of the biggest current criticisms of the iPhone is that it doesn’t allow multi-tasking with third-party apps. However, that may be about to change.
The latest beta of the iPhone SDK includes a reference to a “multitasking dialog box” that give developers hope that multi-tasking may be on the way. And some Web sites are quoting unnamed sources who say that multi-tasking is on the way.
However, before the feature can be added, Apple will have to solve problems related to security, memory usage, and battery life.
