Apple stopped innovating in ways that helped the creative process with their Macs. The touch bar was a cool idea and has some uses but overall hasn't been a huge hit and that's about all they have. And they've made a few that have set them back like the butterfly keyboard which wasn't a big improvement use wise and mostly let them have a thinner notebook. After a few years it looks like they're abandoning it soon after countless issues.
Of all companies Microsoft seems to be pushing what a computer can be, I picked up a Surface Pro 6 last month and have been thinking about making a post about it here because it's the first device which has actually changed how I interact with my work. Going to an iMac 5k was nice in terms of the screen but in the end I used LR/PS the same as with anything else and with essentially the same input devices (mouse/gamepad/wacom tablet). With the Surface though I'm using the touch screen to zoom, I just grab the pen off the side to do some touch ups, these sound like little things but really did create for a noticeably different experience. And the calibrated screen on there with a good contrast ratio doesn't hurt either.
The thing about Apple is that they have all this tech laying around with the iPad Pro. A 2 in 1 that folds like a XPS 2 in 1 or Lenovo Yoga wouldn't be a parts bin computer, but it wouldn't be far off either. Or they could go all in like Microsoft and make a tablet with a keyboard and Adobe's apps already have support for that sort of thing thanks to Microsoft. But they won't because that's the iPad Pro's market and that kinda segmentation is keeping them from having a product with broader appeal. There are a lot of people who an iPad Pro is great for, I know a few who love theirs but last month when I needed a device that was lighter to do edits on site after a lot of thought I decided that iPadOS and the mobile apps just didn't cut it for my workflow.
And I'm kinda glad because I had no idea how great the Surface would turn out to be, it was supposed to be just a system for when I needed something really small but now I'm using it more and more for my work.
