Apple Set To Unify iOS and macOS Apps

Studio MDHR Removes Bogus Cuphead iOS Port

By most accounts, the Mac App Store from Apple Inc.

With Apple planning on giving developers a way to write macOS and iOS unified apps, does this mean we're moving towards a single platform, or at least the end of the Mac? So if you create an app for the Mac, chances are you'll be able to use it on the iPad in some way. Application teams that wish to target both mobile and desktop users must now build a separate version of their software for each of Apple's operating systems.

Apple now plans to begin rolling out the change as part of next fall's major iOS and macOS updates, said the people, who requested anonymity to discuss an internal matter. That's a lot more work. The source noted, however, that Apple's "plans are still fluid", so dates could change or the plan could be canceled altogether.

The current emblem used in the iOS and macOS Apple's operating systems shows three sticks crossed in triangular form. Back in the Windows Phone days, the former introduced the Universal Windows Platform that would let developers release a single application that could then run on laptops, phones, tablets, and PCs.

According to a report from Bloomberg, Apple will allow developers to design applications that work seamlessly on iOS and macOS. The plan itself is likely to be announced in the summer next year at Apple's annual developers' conference. Kon also demanded that Apple stop selling devices displaying the logo in question (which is, basically, any device with access to App Store) until judgement is delivered. The closer the two platforms are, the easier it'll be for developers - but the bigger the risk of users on one platform getting an interface that feels like it was designed for other types of input. Will Apple go there? The system allows users to run mobile device app like Instagram and Snapchat on computers. Around the same time, Apple software chief Craig Federighi called the blending of iOS and macOS "a compromise".
