There have been a lot of talk about Apple possibly looking to make all their device in the future touchscreen devices but it looks like that is not where Apple is looking to go in the near future.
When talking to Backchannel, Apple commented that it would be ridiculous to have a desktop come with a full touchscreen. Phil Schiller added that with the iMac coming with such a huge display, users will have to reach very far to control the whole iMac and that is just “absurd”.
He also said that Apple did test it out but realize that it wasn’t the way to go. Does this mean that there will be no touchscreen Macs in the future?
While Apple seems reluctant to go down that route, we know that Microsoft is more than willing to go that way as seen by their latest unveiling of the Surface Studio.
