    After seeing those supposed-to-be iOS apps running on MBP, I have a very bad feeling that future MBP is going to get worse. Any opinion?

    From a certain perspective, it's easy to think Apple's goal has been to converge ios and MacOS. Remember, though, when Jobs introduced the iPhone? He spent a lot of time talking about ios being built on OS X.

    As ARM continues to develop and scale, we're likely to see ios get closer and closer to MacOS, until they're the same, the capabilities only distinguished by the hardware it's operating on.

    Can you elaborate? If the Mac gains the ability to run iOS apps, or - even better - the developers can ship the same app with responsive design to both Mac and iOS, I can see nothing but advantages for the user.

    As to convergence... macOS and iOS are the same system, the only difference is the user-facing UI server and whether the system is locked or open. And there is no harm in further convergence (e.g. a new UI platform that’s compatible with both the Mac and the phone), as long as macOS remains an open system.
