Question: Difference MAC OSX and ISO

I am,buying a I Pad,Pro,10.5”. I have discovered that there is 2 different systems on them Mac OS X and ISO.

Which would be better to buy. Does the Mac OS X do updates like the iso. I play a lot of gaming now that i’m Retired. I bought a iPad 3 years ago for 550.00 and now it will not update pass ios iOS 9. I want to make sure that what I buy is going to last.

Macintosh computers (MacBook, MacBook Air, MacBook Pro, iMac, Mac mini) run macOS (previous versions were OS X).

Apple tablets (iPads) and phones run iOS.


If you want to buy an iPad, there is no way that it can run macOS.

There are 3 now, MacOS and OSX are operating systems for Macs. IOS is the operating system for iPads/iPhones/iPods. They are not interchangeable, both can do Automatic Upgrades. Both will have an endpoint to their upgrades at some point. They can not be upgraded as infinitum.

Hi Paula,

An ISO Disk Image is like another folder on your computer.

One might think you were talking about OSX (Apple's computer software)... and IOS (Apple's iPad and iPhone software/platform). There are different games/apps to play on OSX than IOS but if you had iPad games it is advised to buy an iPad again to keep playing those great addictive games. 🙂


Hope this helps!
