Can Apple's iOS Operating System Replace Microsoft's Windows

The Question Is Not 'Can the iPad Pro Replace 600 Million PCs?' But 'Are Businesses Ready to Replace Windows with iOS?'

Estimates suggest that there are a lot of crusty old beige-box PCs out there, with some 600 million of them over five years old. Philip Schiller, Apple's senior vice president of worldwide marketing, said that this was "sad," and that he'd like to see them taken out of service and replaced with shiny new iPad Pro tablets.
There's little doubt that an iPad Pro can be set up to carry out most tasks that a five-year-old PC might be doing, whether that's running a spreadsheet application, being used to send and receive email, or whatever. That's the easy part.
