Rumor claims Apple plans a ‘lite’ version of macOS for the iPad Pro next year

I’m very skeptical, but I REALLY hope this rumor is true. As noted by AppleInsider, leaker Majin Bu claims Apple is working on a version of macOS exclusively for the M2 iPad Pro.

He says it will be a “smaller” version of the operating system and arrive in2023. According to Bu, testing is being done with a 25% larger macOS UI so it is suitable for touch. However, apps run on the product would still be iPad-optimized versions, not macOS ones.

However, as AppleInsider points out, “it isn’t clear why Apple would move the iPad to a macOS interface in a half-step like this.” If the tech giant is planning on bringing macOS to the iPad Pro, let’s have the real deal. Go big or go home.

As I’ve said before, I use my iPad Pro for so much that being able to use it as a secondary Mac while traveling would be fantastic. However, until Apple works out the multitasking issues or else brings macOS to the iPad Pro, that’s still not feasible for me.
