The iPad Pro is a first generation product evolved from 6th or so generation hardware. But no matter how much some people want to say it isn't a 1st generation product, it unfortunately is the first time Apple has created a laptop-size tablet meant for creative professionals. This is the first generation. People will now figure out what it can and cannot do. What the apps can do. And what features it needs. Following the regular 11-12 month release interval of Oct/Nov each year, we will see the iPad Pro 2 in Oct 2016. I can guarantee that it will inevitably run OS X someday. Maybe not in the 2nd generation, but no later than the 3rd, if Apple wants to remain relevant. The writing has been on the wall for a long time. OS X and iOS use the same Mach UNIX kernel, same kernel extension architecture and filesystem, they just run different userland graphical interfaces. But Apple has done their best to make OS X touch-ready, by introducing Launchpad, iCloud, Notification Center, Fullscreen, Split Fullscreen (Capitan), and Universal Binaries. And now large-enough tablet screens to fit the whole OS plus the external iPad Pro keyboard to prepare it for controlling OS X. A future universal binary will not be PowerPC+Intel. It will be ARM+Intel. The question is not if. It's when. The iPad Pro's use of iOS makes it look like a comically oversized toy. Like an iPod Touch put through a magnifying glass. It's begging for a more advanced OS. I think iPad Pro 2 is still going to be a bit too early for Apple to dare to bring OS X to the tablet world and catch up with Microsoft's multi-year lead. But I doubt it will take their brilliant engineers anymore than 2 years (iPad Pro 3, 2017). OS X is already running on ARM in internal builds, for sure. Anything else would be braindead. And Apple aren't braindead. So if they aren't going to bring OS X to iPad Pro 2, what do you think they *will* change after a year of professional use? My predictions: -64GB flash base model, since flash gets cheaper and larger all the time, and 256 or 512GB as the top model. -Higher resolution screen. This is dubious but they may try to reach 4K for some dumb-consumer reason. As if we need it in a 13 inch tablet. -Next generation ARM with 30-50% higher CPU performance and 2-3x higher GPU performance, to better handle all the pixels on the huge display. This will be vital when app makers realize how much juice it takes to render all of the iPad Pro's pixels. -Twice as much RAM since more and more desktop class apps will demand it. The IPP's 4GB is pathetically iOS-centric and will ensure the Pro 1 cannot be grandfathered in to any OS X support (this reveals planned obsolescence of the iPad "Pro" 1). The Surface Pro has up to 16GB RAM. -Fixes for all the inevitable hardware and manufacturing flaws that will be discovered in this 1 month old product. Putting it into the hands of millions of people always reveals things not found internally. I salute everyone who bought the first generation before Apple has seen what people need from the product. Considered doing it myself, but since I only use iPads to control music mixers I'll wait until the Pro 2, which will hopefully have the juice to be grandfathered in when OS X is installable on the iPad Pro 3. If not, I can always sell the 2 and buy the 3. Apart from the above list of improvements, what do you think the iPad Pro 1 lacks so far?
