An idea video clip of a 13-inch “iPad Pro” running a full version of OS X has been uploaded by Italian consulting business COLLECTION Solution (via Funky Area Monkey). The iPad in the video is shown as having a big kind element with really thin bezels, and is shown presenting OS X Mountain Lion with touch controls. The video likewise flaunts the capability to quickly link an Apple Wireless Keyboard and Magic Computer mouse to the iPad, making it possible for a comprehensive desktop-like setting.
The opportunity of Apple combining OS X and iOS into one unified platform has been a popular subject of conversation just recently, as both have actually started to share a common feeling of design concepts. However, a meeting with Apple executives Phil Schiller and Craig Federighi in Macworld last month exposed that the business views the combo iOS and OS X as a “non-goal”, with the previous claiming that the effort would be a “waste of power” and the latter claiming that Apple is focused on building the best products for unique objectives.
Even with this public termination, J.P. Morgan expert Mark Moskowitz predicted previously this month that Apple is undoubtedly working on a platform that integrates OS X and iOS, which is labelled as “iAnywhere.” Specifically, the analyst states that the combination running device would certainly function in tandem with an iOS device docked to a secondary display, running as a full-blown computer. Various other business have actually explored with dual operating systems and other hybrid solutions in the past, however primarily to no acclaim from the public.
On the whole, it is extremely unlikely that Apple will certainly debut a tablet running a full version of OS X as seen in the video or a combo operating system anytime soon. However, recent reports do indicate Apple releasing a 12.9-inch iPad running a next-generation model of iOS sometime in the future, with a launch forecasted for late this year or early next year.
