In Matt Panzerinos take on the Apple PR Event about how, no, they aren’t abandoning the Mac Pro, I spotted this gem when asked about touch screen Macs:
So Apple’s path will not lead them down the direction of touch Mac screens, as they’ve stated. Instead, Federighi suggests that making the iPad Pro, which they feel has a better drawing experience, work better with the Mac is the answer.
“We recognize customers often use both— we all certainly use both — so we’re really focused on making them work well together,” he says.
My prediction: Apple in iOS 11 and macOS 10.whateverthehelltheycallit will allow you to use the iPad Pro as a touch device for your Mac. The obvious use case is artists in Photoshop. You can do this now with Astropad, but It’s not a stretch to see it baked into the base OS.
