Putting too much of that in iOS could be a mistake, but iOS needs more system-wide awareness along with suggestive smarts.
Fit more apps on-screen, improve split-screen modes and treat the iPad more like a Macbook alternative versus being just a large iPhone.

Apple ‘s clash with Qualcomm could hurt iPhone 8 could hurt the iPhone 8
Apple’s dispute with Qualcomm is related to the licensing fees Qualcomm charges for its patents.
According to a new report, Apple’s legal dispute with Qualcomm is going to have an effect on iPhone 8 components, and Apple might have to substitute some Qualcomm chips with Intel components.
Apple has been locked in a bitter dispute with Qualcomm, a major chip manufacturer that has historically supplied the wireless modems for the iPhone.
Qualcomm’s intellectual property is used inside every single iPhone — which Apple acknowledges — but Apple contends that Qualcomm charges unreasonably high patent fees.
The report says that 50% of the iPhone 8 modems could be supplied by Intel, with that number rising to 70% for the 2018 iPhone lineup.
