Apple makes apps for iPhone, iPad and Mac




Apple makes apps for iPhone, iPad and Mac from cross-platform from 2021

Apple is said to be making it easier for app developers to create apps that work on both the iPhone and iPad and on the Mac. From 2021, developers could submit a single app for the Mac and iOS store.

That is what Mark Gurman of Bloomberg says on the basis of insiders. Gurman publishes more often based on internal Apple information. According to the article , the Marzipan plan is called and the goal is to make it easier for developers to develop one app that works on the three devices by 2021. Every new app is an extra cash flow for the company as it receives a percentage of many app-related purchases and subscriptions.

From June on it should be possible for developers to work with a sdk apps for the iPad on a Mac. Developers still have to submit the apps separately to the iOS and Mac software stores, but they do not have to develop the underlying software twice. In 2020, it should also be possible for iPhone apps to convert them to Mac apps. However, Bloomberg reports that Apple technicians have trouble converting the iPhone apps because the phone screens are so much smaller.

By 2021 it is possible to make apps fully cross-platform, according to the plans, whereby software can be published as a telephone, tablet and computer app. Then the developers do not have to deliver the apps per platform at the app store and the app stores are effectively combined, writes Bloomberg. The media company says that the plans are not fixed and can therefore still be changed.

These plans run simultaneously with the hardware plans that the American company has according to Bloomberg. At this time, the mobile devices have self-designed socs, while the company uses Intel processors for Macs. By 2020, some Mac computers might already have Apple processors.

Apple follows with its plans include Microsoft and Google. Earlier Microsoft came with uwp and for its various platforms and Android apps are now available on Chromebooks.
