It is a new schedule for Apple's marzipan initiative to merge iOS and macOS applications, reports Bloomberg today, this year's Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC), which kicks off the efforts of third-party developers and 2021 concludes efforts with universal applications. The new schedule expands in a December 2017 report that Apple was preparing to get apps originally designed for mobile iOS devices for Mac laptops and desktops.
According to Bloomberg, Apple will be a new software development kit this year to enable third-party applications, party developers to port iPad apps for macOS. The release is expected by 2019 WWDC, which is allegedly taking place from June 3 to June 7 in San Jose, California.
This step was expected after last year's WWDC when Apple confirmed that it had internally ported several Mac apps originally designed for iPad, including Home, News, Stocks and Voice Notes. The finished apps were released with MacOS Mojave this fall.
During 2020, Apple will report that third-party iPhone apps can run on Mac ̵
As explained earlier, this effort will facilitate the development process for third-party applications while providing the Mac with a dramatically greater flow of compatible applications, after several years of more powerful mobile creation and iteration. Universal apps can mean more revenue from developers, a single subscription that works on multiple devices, and code that can more easily run on next-generation Mac processors developed by Apple instead of Intel.
Apart from the new software development set Apple is expected to follow its traditional macOS and iOS release cadence at this year's WWDC, featuring the first macOS 10.15 and iOS 13 beta releases as the stars on the show. Today's report also indicates that the long-awaited modular redesign of Apple's Premium Mac Pro desktop machine could be previewed at the June event.
