Schiller points out that the Mac is actually a computer like Apple Watch, iPhone, and iPad, and it also serves specific consumer needs based on a number of principles. Although they did not elaborate on their respective design principles, Schiller believes that these examples will not be further questioned for Apple. One reason is that Apple's past experiments have taught them that a Mac with a touch screen doesn't really help the Apple ecosystem.

Schiller went further and said that Apple's point of view is to use the product as a platform. If the user uses the touch screen on the laptop, this must also be transferred to the desktop. However, for users, using a touch screen on a 27-inch iMac is definitely a disaster. If you really use the touch screen, it also means that Apple must redesign many of the macOS UIs, such as the top function list, which will hurt another group of users who are used to using the mouse or touchpad. Therefore, this is a trade-off in the end: UX designers can't optimize both options at the same time. A set of UI is not only suitable for pressing, it is only suitable for touch.
