Apple might be aiming to opt for the Microsoft path. The Cupertino-located tech company is allegedly aiming to unite its Mac and iOS applications into one for a reliable consumer experience. As cited by Bloomberg, Apple might be taking initial measures towards combined applications as quickly as early 2018. As fraction of it, coders will receive the suppleness to make just a single app that operates with a mouse or touch screen and a trackpad, meaning on iPad, iPhone, or Mac.
For now, coders have to develop 2 different application variants supplying to both Mac and iOS consumers. Launching combined apps will be resolving two issues mutually. It will not just make it time saving and easy for coders to make a sole app, but will also circuitously lead to a revitalization of the otherwise lifeless app store of Mac.
One of the noted Apple app coders, Steven Troughton-Smith, informed Bloomberg that combining Mac and iOS applications will assist both platforms grow and evolve as one, and not one at the cost of the other.” He claims that, “This might be the largest opportunity to software platform of Apple since iOS was launched.”
This project is dubbed as “Marzipan” inside the firm and will materialize as a fraction of the forthcoming major strategy of app update. The project is aimed to occur over various years. Since it is claimed to kick-start early 2018, we might hear something on the similar topic on the lines of the Apple WWDC 2018 meeting. On the other hand, people well known with the issue informed Bloomberg that all this is yet not fixed and strategies might cancel or alter in future.
The initiative of Apple comes after both Microsoft and Google declared their entrance in this sector. Well let us see if Apple is able to be successful in this segment as well.
