I would have thought that hardware ray tracing - gone on about at length with the iPhone 15 Pro range’s A17 Pro SoC - would have had more coverage in an article which compares the M2 and M3 (in the context of the devices, of course). Hopefully AI will give more insight into this in a future article, rather than mentioning it pretty much as an also-ran at the end of a section.

What I was trying to write, and didn't, was for a desktop experience, maybe we are at a stage where a MacBook (yes thats a mac and my bad for being particularly bad about implying otherwise) can feed a nice desktop sized display...or maybe a iPad or even iPhone will do that. I'm reminded of my very first Mac, the PowerBook Duo 230 with a docking station. But still...the macOS (and iOS and PadOS) need help being much simpler. I think that was what I was trying to express, but didn't.
What do you mean they "need help being much simpler"? For whom? I don't see many people struggling to use these devices, do you?
God help you if you put an iPad in their hand, and they erroneously make a hand gesture that makes things "disappear" or "vanish off the screen." I opened someone's browser they had been using on an iPad, and it had dozens of tabbed windows,,,because they had no idea how to close or use them. Yes, they lack knowledge. But they just wanted to read a news article, not learn the intricacies of how to run a display. Yes, maybe tech is not for them, but the alternatives just aren't there for many people.
