For some time, when it comes to iPad Pro, it always starts with a question: can it replace a computer? Apple has focused marketing in recent years in this sense, with the slogan "your next computer is not a computer"At the moment, however, the answer continues to be negative: although the latest Cupertino tablets are flexible and more powerful tools than most traditional notebooks, they still suffer from too many limitations in the classic areas of productivity. Probably things are destined to change with the passage of the Mac and MacBook to the ARM architecture, which will unify the ecosystem.
Meanwhile, however, Apple is studying another answer to the problem. If an iPad isn't enough to make a computer, then maybe two can do it. Seriously, the idea proposed by the patent registered today, July 28, by the USPTO resumes and specifies what we already told you about in March, commenting on another patent: namely the possibility of using two devices of the Apple ecosystem, joining them to increase the screen surface and the possibilities of interaction.
Specifically, the document shows the possibility of joining two iPads via a hinge, and at that point being able to exploit them as if they were part of a single terminal. Of course: it is not the cheapest of solutions. But it would still remain an additional option for anyone who could have it, as well as opening the field to a series of alternative applications, with any accessories specifically designed to exploit this ability.
At the basis of projects of this kind, which we will hardly see applied shortly, there is however a very concrete concept: namely Apple's intention to provide the user with an entire ecosystem of products, capable of not only interacting fluidly with each other , but also to physically combine to take advantage of all available hardware.
