Report: iPhone 4.0 software to support multitasking

For iPhone users who yearn for multitasking on their handsets, a new report suggests that Apple is looking to include the function in its next OS software.

Love Apple’s iPhone, but envy Android and Palm users who can run more than one app at the same time?

Questions that remain once Apple flips the multitask switch:

  • How the iPhone will conserve resources and battery life
  • How the interface will manage notifications and switching between apps
  • If there will be a limit to how many apps a user can have open
  • What part push alerts will play now that apps can run in the background
