We’ve heard of late that Apple is planning on bringing Xcode to the iPad – finally – after leaker Jon Prosser suggested that it is already being tested inside Apple as part of iOS 14 and iPadOS 14.

If that is indeed the case we can expect to see if as part of the WWDC online event this coming June. But we might not need to wait that long.

That’s because designer Parker Ortolani has already created a concept of what we can maybe expect to see what Xcode comes to iPad. And it looks pretty great.

Xcode is the software that developers use when creating apps that run in Macs, iPads, iPhones, and Apple Watches and its lack of iPad version has long been used as a way to claim that iPadOS isn’t on par with macOS. But rumors of its arrival have swirled just about every year, and now they’re back.

The concept itself shows us an Xcode that features larger buttons than we’ve become accustomed to on the Mac.

But they would be vital on a device like the iPad where touch remains the main point of contact. The arrival of first-class trackpad support is a big improvement here, though.

You can check Ortolani’s concept out for yourself and see how you think it might work. Hopefully we’ll be finding out for sure in a couple of months.
