The latest Apple craze: an iPad Pro, giant? — 2022

The iPad Pro are teams that are in no man's land right now. Although many people equate them to the MacBook Pro, the truth is that it is not considered a real computer. In order to take the next step in this direction, the company could be exploring increase the size of the screens of these iPad. This is something that the guru Mark Gurman has commented through an entry in the middle Bloomberg . We tell you all the details and explore whether this may be a wise decision.

Increase the screen of the iPad Pro, a good idea?

Currently the iPad Pro has a maximum screen size of 12.9″. If Apple's plans go ahead it could be placed at almost 16″ which is undoubtedly equivalent to what the MacBook Pros have right now. This will make both teams overlap completely, but without a doubt the Mac would end up overshadowing it. And this would be a consequence of the software that iPads have, which is not quite adequate to be able to use it as a computer.

There are many shortcomings that iPadOS presents today and that are not fully resolved with the new update that will arrive in the fall. One of these problems is undoubtedly the absence of an i suitable interface to be ableconnect an iPad to an external monitor . This is something vital to be able to use an iPad as if it were a real computer, which in the end is the objective that can reach Apple and that is how they have wanted to sell it. The other big problem you have is the absence of programs that are suitable for professionals.

Between these absences stands out for example programs like Final Cut. A tool that is basic for any type of professional in the video editing sector and that obviously limits the use of the iPad Pro. This also adds to the difficulty of using a mouse with the same ease as on a Mac, but in the end If you want to have all these features, you would be facing an iPad with macOS and obviously there would be a big conflict here. This definitely makes having a larger screen on an iPad Pro not a good idea as this would make it heavier to transport due to increased dimensions and weight.

Will Apple end up launching this renewal?

As we have said numerous times, these are just rumours. This makes it cannot be confirmed that Apple will follow this path and if it does it is not in the short term. According to information from Mark Gurman, it is something that is being planned but does not have any kind of date and they have not started working on it. What is clear is that they are going to have to think about this decision a lot. In the end, what is being achieved is that the iPad Air is the equipment par excellence for features and price, and the iPad Pro remains in the background.

We will have to be very aware of the future movements that are made in this regard. But it may be something that does not end up materializing for the reasons we have discussed. It is possible that the size will be maintained and the equipment will be enriched with improved software as well as with a suite of programs that are similar to those of the Mac. With the arrival of the M1 chip in these iPads, this is a path that can be fulfilled.
