Yesterday I ended the day thinking about the future remote possibility of an iPhone that could be connected to a base or a Dock for start a full version of macOS and display it on an external monitor. I have admitted and I admit that this is something that can happen, but in the short term it is unlikely. However, a filter with the alias Mauri QHD on Twitter seems to have data on this.
Apple would work continuously with prototypes to improve the concept, but they would already have two options ready to choose one as their final product. The release date depends on the progress of other related projects, which the source claims to believe with “95% confidence” while warning that it took three weeks to gather the information.
A hybrid part on which to start two graphical interfaces

the software is crazy
I can’t even tell you how excited they are

The iPhone would not have two partitions in its storage to be able to start iOS and macOS separately: apparently there would be a common system base with which to use the graphical interfaces of the two systems. This may be something similar to what we are already seeing with Samsung Dex, but more advanced and optimized.

The same source leaked something very similar, but with an iPad and not an iPhone a few weeks ago. At the time, I said that this is a project that Apple has been working on for years:
Apple is working on prototypes of an iPad with iPadOS and MacOS, I’ve always said it, but now I have 100% confirmation
years of work

Of course, keep in mind that these are leaks from Twitter. My colleague Eduardo has examined how the history of past failures and successes can be viewed, so we have to treat this for what it is: a rumor. But the fact that it already circulates as filtration implies, as I said yesterday, that it is not something impossible.
