Major iPadOS Advances
Pretty much everyone agrees that the new M1 iPad Pro is a powerhouse, since it now features the same chip found in Apple’s newest MacBook Air, MacBook Pro, Mac mini, and iMac models.
However, almost everyone also agrees that iPadOS is holding the iPad Pro back from its true potential. The iPad Pro is capable of so much more, but that “so much more” simply isn’t achievable on iPadOS as it stands today.
While some have suggested that macOS should come to the iPad — a move that’s obviously possible now that it runs the same M1 chip — Apple has made it very clear that’s not ever going to happen.
Unfortunately, Apple is still taking baby steps in growing iPadOS into the operating system that the M1 iPad Pro needs, and while iPadOS 15 offers some nice improvements, it still falls short of giving many users what they need to turn their iPad Pro into a full MacBook replacement.
