I suspect it’s part of Apple preparing for an iOS XCode and similar development tools running on iPads. Now that the high-end iPads are essentially the same performance as decent laptops it would make sense to allow use of those ‘pro’ tools.

It certainly reads like it would cover having a real Squeak/Pharo (indeed, VA Smalltalk, VW, Smalltalk/X etc) running on an iPad. Given the glacial pace of many of these things it could even be ready for a 50th anniversary of Alan Kay’s PhD thesis.
