Splitscreen multitasking is only supported on iPad Air 2, iPad mini 4, and iPad Pro.
The iPhone version only supports opening shared links in a modal window of Safari View Controller through an action extension.

Sidefari is a simple web browser that is designed to act as a companion to Safari.
With multitasking in iOS 9, Sidefari uses the new Safari View Controller to show an extra Safari-based browser on the side of your iPad's screen. Now you'll be able to have two websites simultaneously on the same screen while enjoying the full benefits of Safari, like content blockers.
But your iPhone won't be let out of the fun, as the app includes an action extension to open URLs in a modal window of Safari View Controller -- all without exiting the current app. All that's required is for the app being used to support action extensions sharing URLs.
