JP Morgan analyst Mark Moskowitz says Apple may be preparing to release a platform he dubs ‘iAnywhere’ that would let you dock your iOS device into a display turning it into a full blown desktop computer.
“While not a new idea, our global tech research team believes Apple could be on the cusp of introducing a new category with iAnywhere, a converged MacOS-iOS operating system that allows an iPhone or iPad to dock into a specially configured display to run as a computer,” Moskowitz said. “In our view, this category would be a leapfrog event, potentially jumpstarting iPhone and iPad growth as well as peripherals and cloud-based software and services sales.”
It’s said that Apple could introduce ‘iAnywhere’ within 12 to 18 months.
