    This is probably a stupid question but I figured I'd ask anyhow: On the iPad Pro, can you run two Portrait-Style apps (the kind that don't normally rotate) in Landscape multitasking mode? Or even just one with the notes app on the side? During the presentation they showed that the width was the size of an iPad Air 2 so I just assumed you could. I just got my iPad pro yesterday but it seems like some apps just will not rotate or multitask. Bummer (but I still love the IPP!)

    Apps need to be updated by their developers to work with side-by-side multitasking. If a developer doesn't care enough to create a landscape mode for their apps, chances are they won't bother updating their app to work in side-by-side modem either.

    Oh okay that makes sense. Unfortunately most of my apps haven't been updated yet. Hopefully more developers will come on board then .
