Apple To Combine iPhone, iPad And Mac Apps

While the tech giant Apple’s software development work – at least those we can verify – is focused on polishing iOS 11 with continuous updates, as Bloomberg has just brought to light one of the possible novelties of iOS 12 in which the tech giant Apple has been working for years. A change that would affect fully the applications available for download and installation from the App Store.

As the tech giant Microsoft promoted with Windows 10 and Windows Phone – Windows 10 Mobile – the tech giant Apple could surprise us next June 2019 with a similar idea. An idea that would correspond with one of the great novelties of iOS 12 and that is none other than the fusion of the store of applications for iPhones, iPads and Macs.

One of the possible great novelties of iOS 12

As reported by Bloomberg in its digital portal, the tech giant Apple would be able to merge iOS applications with Mac as one of the great innovations of iOS 12. A major change would apply a bombshell consideration in the software platform of the tech giant Apple.

In fact, this change would have a double effect. First of all, the tech giant Apple would be able to stimulate the creation of applications for Mac since the developers of iOS apps would have the possibility of optimizing them for macOS. It means that the applications available on the App Store would work equally on the touch screen of iPhones and iPads as in the Macbook and iMac.

A master movement if we take into account the situation in which the macOS application store is located, where the catalogue is reduced and program updates reign by their absence.

Therefore, the most benefited would be Mac users, who would see solved at a stroke the main disadvantages that they have to face in terms of software availability.

The uncertainties of Apple

While the source on which Bloomberg is based ensures that the tech giant Apple has been working on this project for years and points as a novelty of iOS 12 that will be released at WWDC 2019, in June, there is also the possibility that the tech giant Apple may cancel or postpone this idea.

This is matched by the digital medium and, in turn, rewinds in the past to rescue some of the statements made by Tim Cook and Craig Federighi, the tech giant Apple’s software chief, in this regard. Through them, managers threw balls out and hinted that it was a small possibility, a commitment for the company that would not offer the desired user experience among its customers.

So, will the tech giant Apple finally decide to include support for iOS apps for macOS as one of the great innovations of iOS 12? Undoubtedly, it would be a powerful movement, nothing crazy considering the vision of the tech giant Microsoft to embark on the same project with Windows 10.

In this case, the result has been totally disastrous, but not because of the idea itself, but because of the residual quota of users with Windows 10 Mobile smartphones, a platform evoked to disappear. Similarly, the tech giant Google has made similar movements with Android applications to be compatible with Chromebooks, although the market share of computers with the software of the tech giant Google make their efforts to this effect are inconspicuous for the sector.
