2021 12.9-inch iPad Pro review: Pro hardware without Apple's pro softwaremelgross said:OutdoorAppDeveloper said:Summary: The iPad Pro has amazing hardware but meh software.
My take: The iPad Pro running Mac OS with full touch screen support would be a pure drool fest. An instant buy now and a huge industry disrupter. Steve Jobs would have released it immediately.
‘’to do that, get any app that allows an iPad to run the macOS Desktop. You’ll see why it’s a ridiculous idea right away.
I am also certain that Apple designers/engineers have already seen what the competition is doing as well, the MS Surface/convertible market. If that was the computing Valhalla that many here claim or want, Apple by now would've been calling it quits on iPadOS and touchscreen Macs would've already been announced.

Market pressure. Companies still selling devices with USB-A are only looking at the here and now, not the longer-term longevity of the devices. USB-C supports USB-A (via an adapter), but not the other way around, so it makes sense to provide USB-C and let consumers downgrade if they need to.Syntech USB C Female to USB Male Adapter(3 Pack), Type C to USB A Converter Compatible with Laptops, Power Banks, Chargers, for iPad Air 4/iPad Pro 2020, iPhone 11/12 Pro Max, Samsung Galaxy S20 etc https://smile.amazon.co.uk/dp/B085VT1VJT/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_glt_fabc_B3MCRRFN6NR02EHXQG68
All iPhone models sold by Apple today, including the XR come with a lightning to USBC cable.

Disgusting idea. It really seems that these who want macOS on an iPad, any iPad, haven’t given any thought to what that would be like.
Apple currently limiting M1 iPad Pro apps to 5GB RAM eachOutdoorAppDeveloper said:Apple gets to make all the decisions for how a customer can use their iOS devices. Why should RAM be any different? Apple firmly believes that people are just not smart enough to make decisions like "this app is really important to my work so it should be able to use all the RAM." or "I need to manage my personal network so I am going to let this app see the MAC addresses so it can track and identify the devices I have connected to it." You absolutely can't make a decision like "I don't like all of Apple's restrictions so I will install this third party App Store."
a) 128 GB
b) 256 GB
c) 512 GB
d) 1 TB
e) 2 TB
All this talk about RAM is pointless.
If you’ve been visiting the brothers over at MaxTech, they have videos comparing 8 GB vs 16 GB of RAM, albeit on a MacBook.
The performance differences are negligible, no matter what they throw at them.
Why would the iPP be different?
Correction, they do compare iPP of varying RAM:

I bought the iPad, I should be able to use as much RAM as I want.
That’s why the iPad cannot be used for “real work”.Any other upcoming arguments I missed?Very stupid argument.
Do you really think Apple is doing this without any reason, but just to make the user’s life miserable?
And in your imagination, how the third party OS is supposed to look like?
