Yesterday I finished the day reflecting on the future possibility of an iPhone remotely connecting to a dock to boot a full version of macOS and display it on an external monitor . I admit that this is something that can happen, but in the short term it is unlikely. However, a filterer with the alias Mauri QHD on Twitter seems to have data about just that.
Apple would be working with prototypes continuously to improve the concept but would already have two options ready to choose one as the final product . The release date depends on the progress of other related projects, something that the source says it believes with “95% confidence” while it reports that it has taken three weeks to gather the information.
The iPhone would not have two partitions in its storage to be able to boot iOS and macOS separately: apparently there would be a common system base with which to use the graphical interfaces of both systems. It may be something similar to what we already see with Samsung Dex, but more advanced and optimized.

The same source was filtering something very similar but with an iPad and not an iPhone a few weeks ago. At that time it said that this is a project that Apple has been working on for years:
Of course, you have to keep in mind that these are leaks coming from Twitter. My colleague Eduardo has reviewed how the history of past failures and successes can end up being seen, so we have to treat this as what it is: a rumour. But the fact that it is already circulating in the form of a leak means, as I said yesterday, that it is not impossible.
