iPads have powerful hardware, but they lack support for macOS and related programs with a desktop interface. Apparently, Apple intends to add this functionality to their devices.

Apple will turn the iPad into a full-fledged PC


The appearance of a fresh patent indicates the beginning of work in this direction. It describes the ability to connect the iPad to a physical keyboard, then the device will be able to switch to laptop mode. The screen interface at the same time changes to almost identical to what is available on macOS. Of the features, it is worth paying attention to improved multitasking with the launch of several programs in resizable windows. This will allow you to instantly move from one application to another and move content between them.



The document also states that the tablet will be attached to the keyboard using a magnetic mount. In addition, a compartment for the Apple Pencil branded stylus will be added to the keyboard hinge. The keyboard will provide for the placement of others: a camera for video communication, a microphone and a projector.

Not so long ago, Bloomberg insider Mark Gurman said that Apple could develop three modes for the iPad, which are activated automatically based on the actions of the owner of the device and other factors. So, the standard mode will practically not differ from the one available in iPadOS. When using the stylus, the interface will adjust to this device, and in professional mode the tablet will work in the same way as in the description of the above patent documentation.

It is likely that the technology will be presented at WWDC 2022. The event will begin on June 6th.
