Apple: We will not produce computers with touch screen – they are uncomfortable to work




Apple will not release a Mac with a touchscreen. This was in an interview with CNet said a top manager of a California corporation Craig Federighi.


After the presentation, which Apple presented its new devices, among whom was the iMac display Retina 5K, Federighi answered the question about the touch screens for computers based on OS X. «We do not think that this is a suitable interface. Mac experience suggests use in a sitting position, “- he said. Apple spokesman explained this by the fact that the use of the touchscreen, sitting at the table and constantly moving with him to the keyboard and back will be uncomfortable. In the case of tablets and smartphones is convenient, since these devices are user holds.

“We are focused on creating the most convenient trackpad when using them you are in the most relaxed position, it is comfortable to use the device. And of course, we are experimenting with all the technology, but we found that the touch screen can not be called good when it comes to computers. We are not interested in the creation of such a decision, “- added Federighi.

Lack of interest on the touch screen from Apple is somewhat different from the situation that is emerging on the market PC, but easy to use with a bunch of touch screens and keyboard appears, at most, a transformer, rather than a laptop in the bar form factor, where users continue to connect external manipulators.

Undoubtedly, to draw final conclusions about the convenience of touch screens in laptops and desktops still early, but the opinion of the company from Cupertino is often at odds with the public.

Previously, Craig Federighi denied rumors that Apple is planning to merge iOS and OS X in one operating system. Instead of combining the two platforms in Cupertino are planning to keep them separate paths of development, while making the relationship more simple and profound. Unlike Microsoft, seeking to unify its OS, the Mac maker is convinced that the multisensory control with the keyboard and mouse are designed for different systems and tools.
