MacBook with Baby Software and No Keyboard = iPad redesigned with supersized display. That’s it. That’s the story. In Bloomberg’s first edition of “Power On” newsletter, Mark Gurman (Gurmmy) touches on several topics anywhere from the NBA playoffs to newer iPads with bigger displays.
The current iPad Pro maxes out at 12.9-inches diagonally, so we’re talking “one in the 14-inch to 16-inch range.” Gurmmy also discloses that while this would be nice, a larger display for the iPad wouldn’t be a thing for “a couple of years down the road at the earliest” as they’re unlikely for 2022 with Apple focusing on a redesigned iPad Pro in the current sizes for 2022. He finally adds that it’s fully possible “they never come at all.”
“I’m told that Apple has engineers and designers exploring larger iPads that could hit stores a couple of years down the road at the earliest. They’re unlikely for next year—with Apple’s attention on a redesigned iPad Pro in the current sizes for 2022—and it’s possible they never come at all.”– Mark Gurman
While larger display sizes would further blur the lines between the iPad Pro and the MacBook Pro, which is available with up to a 16-inch display, the fu*king thing is still sort of cucked. Many users still believe iPadOS doesn’t take full advantage of the iPad Pro’s hardware, mainly referring to the M1 chip here.
Gurmmy further dreamed about a day the iPad came with the ability to have four or five easily resizable and movable windows like on a Mac and the ability to to run Mac apps that currently don’t exist on the iPad.
Okay, so great? It’s bigger? But it’s still an iPad.
