It's not about macOS, it's for iOS. They are running the same kernel and most other stuff, just different interface to the user. The header lists: 339 #define CPUFAMILY_UNKNOWN 0 340 #define CPUFAMILY_POWERPC_G3 0xcee41549 341 #define CPUFAMILY_POWERPC_G4 0x77c184ae 342 #define CPUFAMILY_POWERPC_G5 0xed76d8aa 343 #define CPUFAMILY_INTEL_6_13 0xaa33392b 344 #define CPUFAMILY_INTEL_PENRYN 0x78ea4fbc 345 #define CPUFAMILY_INTEL_NEHALEM 0x6b5a4cd2 346 #define CPUFAMILY_INTEL_WESTMERE 0x573b5eec 347 #define CPUFAMILY_INTEL_SANDYBRIDGE 0x5490b78c 348 #define CPUFAMILY_INTEL_IVYBRIDGE 0x1f65e835 349 #define CPUFAMILY_INTEL_HASWELL 0x10b282dc 350 #define CPUFAMILY_INTEL_BROADWELL 0x582ed09c 351 #define CPUFAMILY_INTEL_SKYLAKE 0x37fc219f 352 #define CPUFAMILY_ARM_9 0xe73283ae 353 #define CPUFAMILY_ARM_11 0x8ff620d8 354 #define CPUFAMILY_ARM_XSCALE 0x53b005f5 355 #define CPUFAMILY_ARM_12 0xbd1b0ae9 356 #define CPUFAMILY_ARM_13 0x0cc90e64 357 #define CPUFAMILY_ARM_14 0x96077ef1 358 #define CPUFAMILY_ARM_15 0xa8511bca 359 #define CPUFAMILY_ARM_SWIFT 0x1e2d6381 360 #define CPUFAMILY_ARM_CYCLONE 0x37a09642 361 #define CPUFAMILY_ARM_TYPHOON 0x2c91a47e 362 #define CPUFAMILY_ARM_TWISTER 0x92fb37c8 363 #define CPUFAMILY_ARM_HURRICANE 0x67ceee93

Yes! Dual OS, dual screen laptop coming soon! Top half laptop screen, bottom half iPad and Mac. Detach and connect to larger screens possible.
