Why would Apple want to do this? If you want a laptop then get MacBook Pro. If you want a tablet then get an iPad Pro.

I have both. The allure of an iPad is its ease of use and light weight. When I am traveling I am way more likely to take an iPad than my MacBook Pro. If you need to "get real work done", that is what a Mac (or even a WindowsPC ) is for. For personal use, nothing beats an iPad.

Making iPads more like Macs is going to lessen the demand for one or the other. Not a good strategy for Apple.

Why not make the Apple Watch more like an iPhone? Why not make an iPhone more like a Mac? Why not make iTunes more like Spotify? Why not make Macs more like Windows PCs?

The answers are obvious.
