What do they mean by: "iPhone doesn't have real multitasking"?
When you are not actively using an application on the iPhone, iOS puts it in a suspended state until you go back to it. It essentially freezes the app (notable exceptions are native apps and things like Pandora.) When they say "real" multi-tasking, the other platforms allow the programs to actually run in the background. While this allows the phone to do more things at once, it swallows up a lot of system resources and naturally consumes more battery and memory.
Meaning that the applications are not really running in the background but rather in a suspended state. Some applications like Pandora (only certain functions) can continue to function in the background but most are simply suspended. True multitasking would allow the application to continue functioning normally when not selected.
