Apple macOS specifically for iPad Pro M2
Apple has been working towards building even more powerful iPads every year and now it’s on plans of making its iPad compatible enough to work as a compact-sized convertible tablet-laptop product.
Previously, we did see Apple trying to showcase its iPad lineup which can also work as a great laptop, and then the firm even launched suitable keypads supporting these iPads. However, even though these iPads were powerful enough to compete with other expensive flagship laptops.
However, the only main drawback which kept this iPad Pro to stay behind to make its transition toward a fully functional laptop was its operating system mainly.
All these iPads came with the newly launched and efficient iPadOS onboard. Although, Apple did bring some changes to its new iPadOS 16 where they added more functionality which made their iPad lineup even more friendly for being used as a laptop too.
Even after such efforts, users did have a concern about using iPads as a laptop because there was much functionality lagging here compared to what we see in MacBooks.

Apple has understood the assignment and maybe as a solution to the user’s concern, they are working on a specific new macOS which will be only availed for the pro flagship variant.
As of now, there are no such updates about what exactly Apple is planning but we can say that this macOS which be having features inspired by both iPadOS as well as macOS. For more updates, we will have to wait a little longer.
