The Slide Over feature will increase the multitasking capabilities of your iDevice, allowing you to do more things simultaneously. To access slide-over, when you’re running an application, you will slide your finger from the right side of the screen, then a panel will slide out and you’ll see a column of app icon. If you’ve already opened an application, you will slide your finger down from the top of the slide-over panel to reach the list of apps.

Improved Searching Capabilities

Apple improved the search function to obtain better results. This feature can be accessed by swiping left from the main home screen and they will get a lust of the most searched applications, contacts and other information stored on their devices.
