Apple Has Thought About Turning Your iPhone Into A Touchscreen MacBook
An idea like this has crossed Apple's mind.
Apple is always looking for ways to innovate and set the bar even higher for their series of products. If they didn’t, we might not have the Air pods or the iPod. It would appear that Apple is going to push the envelope even further than that in the future.
There was a patent filed that has docks for iPhones on laptops. If this is the case then the iPhone appears to become the control for the laptop because it docks in the track pad section. For this example, the iPhone has most of the guts of the laptop, the processor and memory card just to name a few.
In the other instance, Apple would allow the iPad to dock in the display area and the track pad would be in/on the laptop. Your iPad becomes the monitor and this way, the iPad powers the whole thing. It will be interesting to see if anything every comes from this patent but it could be something like Apple’s answer to being able to plug a keyboard into your Windows Tablet. Let’s face it, everything in technology is based around copying each other and who can “come up with” the next big idea.( Via The Verge)
