And, for most of its existence, that’s counted the iPad out, almost completely. At least until last year… That's when Apple gave Swift Playgrounds the ability to use SwiftUI to create honest-to-Craig iPhone and iPad apps... on the iPad.

Why it became a cultural phenomenon, helped to save Apple and give birth to the iPhone… but also… why it absolutely had to die.  And I want to focus on three very specific decisions that Apple made, decisions that led to the iPod’s incredible success, but also… it’s inevitable destruction.

The Google I/O keynote had just finished and my timeline and messages are filled up with snark and snarls over all the features Android is copying from iOS, from 2021’s digital IDs to 2014’s Continuity, and pretty much every hardware feature from Apple to AirPods Pro for the Pixel Watch and Pixel Buds Pro… And you know what?

By bifurcating the higher-end Mac desktop lineup, by introducing the Mac Studio as the all-in-none, sealed, computing appliance successor to the 2013 J90 trashcan Mac Pro, Apple at the same time very neatly carved out what exactly is still needed from an Apple silicon Mac Pro, an extensible, upgradeable success to the 2019 J160 cheese-grater 2 Mac...
