The official BBC iPlayer app has been updated to pick up support for Apple's picture-in-picture feature as part of iOS 9. The app will now allow you to sit through your favorite programs while browsing the web in Safari, or checking through thousands of emails on your iPad.

What this feature will enable you to do is slide a video to one of four corners of the screen on the iPad. The video will continue playing and remain on-top of anything else you have displayed on screen. The windows can even be resized, but do remember you'll need to be rocking an iPad Air or newer, or an iPad mini 2 or newer in order to use picture-in-picture.
