I believe it definitely can. Why would Apple put the full-blown M1 Chip with all the Mac-specific components, like a Rosetta accelerator into an iPad? Apple will likely bring macOS, or at least support for Mac apps in some way, shape, or form to the iPad, likely just the M1 iPad Pro. Potentially, on a future iPad Pro, Apple could even have a new keyboard dock with more ports, a discrete GPU, a fan, larger battery, and more ports. If t take this Surface Book approach, the iPad Pro would probably become the best pro âlaptopâ out. Apple is missing so much by refusing to put a proper desktop OS that canât even run Chrome and the entire Chromium-based web ecosystem of websites and extensions that donât work on Safari (it can run the iOS version of Chrome which is basically just a Google wrapper of mobile Safari) let alone the many pro macOS apps the iPad Pro could theoretically run with no modification. Another benefit of the modular approach is keyboard issues. If Apple produces another âButterflyâ keyboard or something similar, users could just swap it out with a third-party keyboard, which would be way cheaper for both the user and Apple, than replacing the built-in keyboard of a MacBook. There are simply fewer breakpoints on the iPad than the Mac and fewer places it might need repair. Apple NEEDS to add some kind of macOS to the iPad. I even think as an optional install. Perhaps, users could dual boot between iPadOS and macOS in the same way that Intel Mac users could dual boot between macOS and Windows. The new iPad Pros certainly have enough RAM and storage. Also, I donât know if itâs just me, but I think macOS Big Sur would look really nice on the iPad Pro.
This would mean that you could create shortcuts without needing to download Flash or install a new web browser. I'm also interested in the idea of setting up my computer to use a VPN to make it seem like I'm in another country. I was thinking that using Chrome would be enough for this functionality, so I wouldn't want to pay for it. What are other people getting rid of? I'm afraid this may be one of those features that seems so obvious, but no one has thought of this.
