Apple announced macOS 11 Big Sur to much surprise this last week at WWDC. Along with the transition to ARM came a bevy of visual changes (we won’t call them upgrades, per se) and the announcement that Apple Silicon Macs would be able to run iOS apps without modification. Not only that, but that Apple would be placing all iPad and iPhone apps available to download in the Apple Silicon Mac App Store by default unless the developer specifically states that they don’t want it listed. A bunch of multi-touch apps and games require touch input, however, and we’re as sure as ever that touchscreen Macs are on the horizon despite Apple’s insistence that they’re not coming soon. We talk about visual indications we’ve found hidden in macOS Big Sur that help argue why macOS Big Sur hidden secrets hint at a touch-capable future. #macOS #BigSur #SnazzyLabs

  • the answer is obvious. put the touchscreen flat like a piece of paper on a table. it is how i draw on my ipad pro and it is ergonomically the same as using a mouse only it is about 50 billion times more natural.

  • I’m disabled with bad hand control and I will be completely completely and utterly fucked if my 2019 Mac Pro had a touch monitor... I’m 44 years old I’ve had Macs all my life and if Apple did this then it would mean the death of Macs for me as I wouldn’t be able to use them and I absolutely hate PC’s so that would mean I can’t use any computer. Thanks a lot Tim Cook!!!

  • Me, touchscreen laptop from HP: :/ it’d change barely anything, you could just tap the screen to click, because they’d obviously keep the trackpad and the keyboard, and the mouse compatibility.

  • Hmmm, let's consider something for a moment: 1. iPhone - runs iOS on Apple silicon. 2. iPad - runs a version of iOS on Apple silicon. 3. Apple Watch - runs a version of iOS on Apple silicon. 4. Apple TV - runs a version of iOS on Apple silicon. 5. Mac - runs macOS until recently exclusively on Intel silicon. Does it make any sense for Apple to run every major device they sell on their own chips and a version of iOS and then have a completely different chipset and OS for the Mac? The answer, of course is no. This is exactly why Apple have started to switch the Mac to Apple silicon as well. The new M1 Macs share almost all of the limitations of the iPad Pro, and this is not a coincidence. macOS Big Sur on Apple silicon IS iOS with a user interface to make it look like macOS. That's exactly why it allows native compatibility with iOS apps. Is this a huge step forward for the Mac? ABSOLUTELY NOT!! It is possibly one of the worst things to happen in years. Apple don't keep around products that don't make huge profits from, and the Mac has been trailing along for years. The Mac only represents about 10% of their profits, which is around half of what they make on services (20%), so their recent focus on the Mac should be getting people wondering what they are actually up to. rejuvenate

  • Touchscreen windows laptops don’t have significant demand. How many of those people buy a touchscreen laptop without even knowing it’s touch screen? A lot of touch screen laptops don’t have a no-touch-screen option, so someone who wants it is just stuck with it.

  • Touchscreens on coming they put your off the scent. The real issue is not use upgradable or repairable in the majority of cases. So much glue holding them together that they are now disposable items with built in manufactured obsolescence.

  • It is so bad, that Apple did not get it, to make Big Sur suitable for 4k. Itself switches silently to FullHD. Set back tom4k, everything has just a quarter of its original size! That does not help at all! Why? We are expecting to have it manageble and ultra sharp, but with correctly sized texts and icons. Why they did not do it in 2021?

I used to work for a big company and would watch our salesmen lie directly to consoles faces just to make it seem like our products were the best when they were not.

  • The iPad keyboard pro wasn’t meant to just be touch based, so this doesn’t really stand. It’s meant to be used with a mouse. It’s just that, they give you the *option* to touch the screen also. The bigger spacing in the safari bar and menus is just a design choice. More negative space means less cognitive load. It’s nothing to do with touch plans.

  • if what u said is true that apple wants their users to spend more on hardware and not less, than I see a "bridge" device or a software update for using your iPhone as a joystick to a game that's natively iOs but on Big Sur. or a device like a track pad that is a glass screen that tracks just like an iPhone screen but its sole purpose is to be a touch screen. It's a stretch but its apple at the end of the day lol

  • to make it more ergonomic, it'd have to be similar to the ipad pro+magic keyboard but in one piece imo, or similar to that Surface you showed. I think it's easier to use that way because the tablet is elevated.

  • Love this opinion piece. Back in 2012 we were briefly using a Windows laptop and the owner casually touched the screen to scroll and my face melted. I realized then that Apple was foolish not to have it as an option. Since then I find myself touching Mac screens instinctively and slightly startled to see no response. Apple must go there and I totally agree Big Sur is staging this ability. That said Apple won’t be going back on its word. They won’t be merging the two. Like splitting iPad OS out from iOS, they have to tweak the OS to maximize the interface dynamics. I don’t think it will weaken the interface any more than the introduction of the pencil weakens an iPad. My wife paints on the iPad and uses a pencil or her finger depending on what works best... just like painters always have. Options are a good thing. There is no one way of doing things that is best for all. Every successful Apple product has that philosophy baked into its DNA. Great video!

  • The only thing big sur has me hopeful for is have a mac OS phone. It will probably be a long time, if ever. Idk why they don't make the iphone or ipad with mac os and a ios like GUI for handheld mode. Have it so you can doc your phone into a samsung dex kind of base. (Maybe that dock is built into the touchscreen monitor.) The dock could also serve as expansion to ram and rom.(an giving to much hope to Apple, a external GPU) Hopefully big sur is a step into this direction. What you were saying at the end of the video. You were saying it will end up being 2 operating systems trying to work together but end up working against each other eventually. The way they protect ios from 3rd party applications and such. My dream will probably never be fulfilled. They could probably achieve this, but it will probably force 3rd party apps to only be purchased through Apple store.

  • Touchscreen laptops are enormously sucky. Think of how quickly you adapt to using the keyboard for navigation exclusively, once you add one to a vertical touchscreen. Even a mouse or a trackpad falls largely to the wayside of the scroll keys. Or else you ditch the keyboard and wind up using the laptop as a tablet almost exclusively. The ubiquity of touchscreen laptops in the market doesn’t reflect consumer demand, so much as a hegemony in marketing strategies- it’s equivalent to all the movie studios one year saying “Oh, 3-D is what’ll fill seats!” and then movie lovers having to endure 3-D slapped onto everything for 12 months, whether viewers really want it or not. Today demand only minimally affects production; more often, consumers who want a base product are forced to endure whatever frills a marketing monopoly slaps onto a product in that monopoly’s effort to invent a need. And Apple added the stylus as an accessory to the iPad platform, and not as an integral, indispensable part of it. If I used my iPad mainly for music or for math applications, or for pretty much anything other than drawing, I could go through my iPad’s lifetime without using a stylus once. So I don’t think they went back on what they’d originally said about the stylus as a component being unnecessary to the platform. While I could be wrong about the direction of MacOS, I rather think it’s you who’s missed the mark here… no offense. One of the qualities that has set the 21st century Apple design team apart from the rest has been, with the notable exceptions of the hockey puck mouse and the nipple mouse, its excellent understanding of ergonomics. I could maybe see a laptop with a touchscreen element on the _keyboard_ half of the clamshell, like the touch-ribbon made larger… but the introduction of a straight touchscreen laptop by Apple seems unlikely to me. Then again, they had those horrible laptop keyboards from 2016 to 2019, so who knows: they could stumble again.

  • When apple removed 3D Touch from new iPhones - so removing pressure sensitivity for artist draw/paint apps, I knew they’d finally stopped listening to users. Apple success relied on their basis in BSD unix and Next system - real operating systems compared to the otoy OSs available (including Linux to some extent). I use Mac an iOS because the software works for me. I also use freeBSD - and that’s now becoming more attractive for some used.

  • Bet that’s why they held off on announcing the M1 MBP and any sort of physical redesigns. The MBP will have a touch screen and maybe even be detachable. Do you know what the reason would be for them to combine their two platforms like that? How would they justify going back on their previous promises? It does seem like they just wouldn’t sell any more iPads. Any insight on that now that Big Sur and the ARM macs are out? You know what I would love? A kind of dual-screen setup like a Nintendo DS. Even like if the laptop had a touchpad next to the trackpad or a trackpad that could become a touch pad. I do recording and it would be REALLY neat to be able to put the mixer on a little secondary screen built right in. And that would add value above it simply replacing an ipad.
