I’m woefully late to this party, but although I understand what they’re driving at and have made the iPad my “personal” computer (in the sense that it is what I try to use first unless specific formats or development work are required), I hope they understand that the decades of successfully “dumbing down” consumer apps to fit touchscreens do not translate (at all) to “Pro” computer users’ wants and needs.
No, the iPad Pro isn’t good enough yet, and won’t be unless they do some radical changes to its iOS fork. So they are walking a very fine rope here, and all for the sake of their consumer audience (which I completely get), but mark my words:
The day Apple kills off the UNIX userland in macOS (which is already badly outdated), their developer (and pro user) market share will evaporate overnight, and likely take down a good chunk of the Apple developer community with it as well, because Macs will be back to being special single-purpose snowflakes instead of generic developer workstations.
Aiming for quantity instead of quality isn’t a winning strategy for an app ecosystem.
