Apple iPad Pro could feature Mac OS, iOS-integrated operating system
The 12.9-inch iPad that has been in the rumor mill for over a year now still has to be announced by Apple, but new rumors about it continue to show up online constantly. The most recent leaks reveal that two different versions of this large slate are currently under development and one of them is, in fact, a 2-in-1 device.
Apple iPad Pro is expected to launch next year and, according to industry insiders quoted by DigiTimes, this device "may become the vendor's first device to feature an operating system that integrates Mac OS and iOS." Regarding the two prototypes mentioned earlier, it is not known yet if both will hit the market or not.
Same sources mentioned that Mac OS 10.10 "Yosemite" already revealed features almost identical to those from iOS that perform the same functions, such as calendar, notification center or phone capabilities. Considering this, integrating Mac OS X and iOS seems like the next logical step, especially since Windows 10 will be compatible in PC and mobile devices as well.
Obviously, none of these rumors has been confirmed yet, but we will continue to follow this topic and to report as soon as more info comes out.
