iPad Pro 2 To Make 2016 MacBook Pro Obsolete Before It Even Hits The Market? Full Specs Comparison
Earlier this month, Apple released an advertisement for the iPad Pro. In it, Apple compared the tablet to a computer. At face value, the Cupertino-based company seems to be taking jabs at other hybrid gadgets, like the Microsoft Surface Pro 4. However, the successful marketing of the upcoming iPad Pro 2 could spell disaster for the 2016 MacBook Pro.
As Forbes points out, Apple's CEO Tim Cook has admitted that he himself only carries around an iPhone and an iPad during travels. However, the iPad Pro currently runs on iOS, which has its limitations when compared to the MacBook Pro's MacOS. For example, there are more editing tools and work software that are designed for the MacBook Pro. In addition, some websites that publish written work, like WordPress, have limitations on the iOS, which cannot be removed no matter how large a device's screen is.
However, the publication goes on to state that the market momentum is with iOS. It is, as users know, simpler to use. In addition, the publication quotes a source as saying that so much more could be done with iOS in the near future. To be more specific, the source says that Apple is looking into developing an operating system that has the "look and information density and multiple windows of OS X" and "the simplicity and superiority of iOS."
On the other hand, Design & Trend offers two other alternatives. One is that the upcoming iOS 10.2 will come with more MacOS X-like features. The other possibility is that the iPad Pro 2 will run on MacOS X completely. The second option, if taken, would definitely support Apple's claims that the tablet can run just like a laptop.
The iPad Pro 2 is expected to come in a 12.9 inch variant. It will come powered by Apple's A10 processor and will arrive with the Apple Pencil stylus as well. Further, it is expected to come with a Smart Connector and Smart Keyboard.
Meanwhile, The Next Web notes that the 2016 MacBook Pro will come with a new butterfly keyboard design, four USB Type-C ports and a Force Touch trackpad. It will be powered by the Intel Kaby Lake processors. Two variants are expected to arrive, the 13-inch and the 15-inch, both of which will be 4K video compatible.
