Apple wants to merge applications for the iPhone, iPad and Mac so that all users have the same opportunities. The company will provide developers with all the necessary tools and will allow them to develop one application that will work on all three devices.
The code name of the project is “Marzipan”, and it should become one of the main functions of iOS 12 and macOS 10.14 next year. Apple is still working on the project, so the presentation at the World Conference of Developers 2018 can be postponed at the last minute.
Apple plans to introduce changes in the next big update of iOS , as well as macOS . The secret project, codenamed ” Marzipan “, will become one of the company’s main functions next year. In theory, it can be presented at the developers conference in 2018, if the plans do not change.
This solution from Apple will facilitate the task of developers. They no longer have to create separate programs for macOS and regularly update them. Although many developers and release versions of their applications for computers, they often lack many functions. In addition, such versions are updated very rarely. Apple – not the first company to come up with a common application. Microsoft tried something similar to Windows Phone and Windows. However, most of these applications turned out to be substandard and inconvenient for users.
While it is not clear whether the Apple App Store will integrate macOS and iOS, it certainly would be logical.
If the company does not change its plans, the project will be presented at the World Conference of Developers 2018, and developers will have time to update their applications with the help of new APIs.
