    My boyfriend was checking out the developer options menu and noticed that he had 4 of the phone apps running in the background, what could this be from why would he have more then one?

    Totally normal.

    These are system apps that have the same name and are related, but are not the same.

    Yeah really normal, you just start to really understand that you are not buying "one OS" but rather "Four OS".
