Why Apple Might Stop 'MacBook Pro' Production Sooner Or Later
After the recent release of Apple's latest line of laptops, the MacBook Pro, there have been a lot of issues and criticism regarding the new Macs. People have been dissing on the Pro's unnecessary features, and along with subpar sales so far, people are leaning towards believing that Apple might sooner or later stop productions of the MacBook Pro.
Will Apple Stop Mac Pro production?
Is it likely that Apple is going to opt towards abandoning the MacBook Pro and Mac Pro in lieu of iOS devices? Although both the said devices are based on the same software engineering, there is still a massive philosophical difference between the two platforms.
About OS X
OS X, or the MacOS, is a traditional OS, in which each application has significant power to modify and change the state of the machine. This would give some huge utility and flexibility. But there is also the risk that the machine might become unstable over the course of time.
The growing popularity of iOS
iOS, on the other hand, has been carefully and expertly engineered for safety. The apps are limited in what they are able to do, which would make the devices a lot more reliable and better suited towards non-expert users. Whatever the users would do, they can't break the software. But this safety comes at a cost of power and flexibility, no doubt. But each year, iOS is getting some significant updates and is slowly gaining back flexibility and power since there are new, safe ways to accomplish many goals.
If this trend continues, many analysts believe that within a decade, almost every computer users will find all of their needs fulfilled with an iOS-type safe system, and those users are going to eventually migrate to the newer platform since they would most definitely want reliability.
Apple leaning more towards iOS
At the end of such a period, Apple might end up selling mostly iOS-type safe machines. With that being said, it may or may not continue with OS X. With regards to the user interface, there would also be a philosophical difference. Macs are two-surface devices (keyboard & screen), while the iOS mostly involves a one-surface, direct touch.
Currently, direct interfaces are considered as a form of amusement -and two-surface devices are heavily regarded as professional. Analysts think that distinction is artificial, and would most probably need be an obsolete concept. There would absolutely be nothing wrong with an iOS safety on a Windows-mice-keyboard device, nor is there anything wrong with OS X embracing direct manipulation, for artists and creatives.
Apple's next move
Currently, Apple is keeping these two philosophical differences as two product lines, which would also be an implication of the possibility that Apple would consider discontinuing the MacBook Pro lines and focus more on other devices that have already be incorporated with iOS. But with that being said, Apple is also open towards incorporating iOS and discontinue the OS X instead since more and more people are now leaning towards iOS. All remains to be seen.
