Apple has always been blunt when asked about the remote possibility of the iPad coming together in the MacBook and the MacBook on iPad. CEO Tim Cook himself has always been clear that the iPads will never replace the Mac system and they are NOT the same for them.
However, things are changing a bit and while one is not going to become the other, in one of them, the macOS could run iOS applications. If we add to this the implementation of certain new features is macOS Mojave such as Importing from iPhone or iPad photos just taken or scanning documents simply by right-clicking on the Desktop, we can intuit that Apple does want both systems to be increasingly merged but without making both products lose importance.
In this article I just want to put in mind of everyone what I was able to experience last night and that is by browsing the AliExpress store I have been able to see how everything is already prepared for the imminent arrival of new iPads. Many have been the leaks that have been seen on the network, from renderings to plans. I have investigated a little and have studied certain aspects of the leaks, design aspects that fully coincide with some protective covers that are already available sale on AliExpress.
The design of the supposed 2018 iPad Pro is very, very similar to what we have today in the body of the MacBook Pro. The iPad goes from having a slightly rounded design in the corners and rounded body has to carry a new design that resembles what we had when the iPhone 5 was released. A body with very sharp edges, zero edges and goodbye to the Home button and 3.5 audio jack port in favor of a USB-C port.
If this were the case, Apple would have already equaled the number of ports that we have in 12-inch MacBooks and it also has a USB-C port. Some time ago I also commented on the possibility that with the passage of time, the 3.5 audio jack port of the MacBook also disappears in favor of the standard.
Now, having a production mode very similar to the iPad Pro of 2018 with respect to the current MacBook Pros and who knows what that new line of MacBook that is also being rumored will be like, It's no wonder Apple wants both products to look or be very similar.
