And my question was will they have the
intelligence to do it the way you suggest.

Apple did rename OS X to macOS which
suggest changes to the OS but what will
those changes be?

If they do it they way you are thinking it
will be one of the best things they have
in years.

On desktop they click into the field and start typing on their keyboard; on mobile they touch the field and a soft keyboard appears. Apple are just trying to help the rest of the developer community catch up with us.
