Apple has greatly improved the multitasking switcher in iOS 7.

Multitasking has always been a smart way to switch between apps. Now it’s even smarter. Because iOS 7 learns when you like to use your apps and can update your content before you launch them. So if you tend to check your favourite social app at 9:00 a.m. every day, your feed will be ready and waiting for you. That’s multitasking in iOS 7. It knows what you want to do before you do.

In iOS 6, a double press of the Home button would bring up a tray of icons at the bottom of the display. Tapping a icon would launch the application. A long press of the icon would cause the icons to jiggle and allow you to kill an app.

With iOS 7, a double press of the Home button now launches a new full screen interface with app preview screens. Under each app preview screen is its icon. You can swipe left and right between apps, tap an app preview to open it, or swipe an app up and out to quit it.

Check out the video below to see the new multitasking switcher in action!

I don't really see this as and improvement. They just moved the furniture around or, more accurately, remodeled. Functionally, it's not better, it's different.
