  • Apple unveils new iPad Pro with 3D scanner, trackpad support

    ...
    Apple needs to bring Xcode, Logic and Final Cut to iPadOS.
    No, they don't. People need to use Macs for the most serious work, and always will.
    I have to disagree regarding Xcode not being a good addition to the iPad Pro. For building AR apps for the iPad Pro with location based experiences involving live GPS data as an integral part of the app, this opens the possibility of testing an app in a real world setting, rather than having to simulate data. Additionally, it becomes possible to test sensors on the device and also monitor/optimize performance settings. Although this is specific to the developer community, everybody benefits from new and improved apps.

  • XCode may be coming to the iPhone and iPad very soon

    This would be a boon for developers creating apps that involve GPS, as it would be relatively easy to get and test with live GPS signals, when developing outdoors on an iPad.

  • Apple explored iPhones and iPads that dock inside larger devices like MacBooks

    @Sirozha: Sorry to beat you to it. I had this idea close to a decade ago and wrote an extensive note to Apple on their Contact Us page in the hopes that they might actually do something along these lines (though I suggested a built-in component incorporating a lot of what is already built into the iPod). I had always wondered if Apple ever took the idea seriously. In any case, having a smart trackpad that supplements touch input with visible feedback would be a welcomed feature in many circles (think of how it could do with painting in Photoshop, or how it could be applied in assistive technology, to name a few).
