Just do not expect Apple to combine iOS and MacOS. Instead, Marzipan will rely on a software kit that allows developers to build a platform application only once. Whether or not, it provides a much-needed boost to the massive availability of the Mac App Store and is yet to be seen. Apple refuses to comment on the report. The Application Alliance agrees with its big bet on services: before WWDC, Apple will unveil the news subscription service and video streaming center as early as next month. He reviewed some of his efforts at WWDC last June, demonstrating a suite of new Mac applications including news, shares, home and voice memos that were built by their iOS colleagues using a new UIkit. Then Apple's Craig Federighi promised that the same functionality would be passed on to third-party developers this year.
