For a while now, Google has been trying to bridge the gap between the mobile experience and the desktop experience. Maybe you’ve tried the dynamic of running Android apps on a Chromebook. Well, as much as Apple may try to position the iPad Pro as a “real computer,” sometimes you still want the full macOS experience. But you also want iPad apps. Soon, you may have both in one machine.

According to some recent reports, Apple is hard at work developing the possibility of running iPad apps on your Mac of choice.

Presumably, there really should be no difference to this whether you want to do it on your MacBook, MacBook Air, MacBook Pro, iMac or iMac Pro. Perhaps the biggest hurdle, though, is that none of the current Mac family come equipped with a touchscreen display, quite unlike several offerings from the Windows side of the computing equation.

While this may lead us to believe that Apple may finally implement a touchscreen on a Mac, it still means that they’d need to figure out how people can use touchscreen-based iPad apps on a non-touch Mac. This internal project started at least some time last year, according to Bloomberg, but the folks in Cupertino are understandably staying hush-hush about the whole thing and continues to decline to comment.

At the same time, the new iOS 12 should be coming down the pipeline too. It’s expected that the newer mobile OS will come with a FaceTime update, improved parental controls, and possibly some more augmented reality features too.
