iOS Multitasking in Detail

Interesting video on how memory is done while “multitasking” on the iPad:

There are five sections to this video demonstrating:

  • An app going from active to background to suspended
  • Instacast HD requesting extra background time to finish a podcast download
  • TomTom running indefinitely in the background
  • Batman Arkham City Lockdown and Real Racing 2 HD competing for big chunks of device memory
  • Batman Arkham City Lockdown forcing several smaller apps out of memory
