iOS 12: Apple is about to eat the Mac

Jonny Evans

Watching Apple since 1999. I don't say what they should do. I say what they might do. They sometimes do.

    Making iOS apps work on macOS is easy — Xcode already has iOS simulators, so mainly what Apple is doing here is integrating that simulation code into the native OS and tweaking the UI to make it more seamless. One should not take the leap from there that it means iOS will necessarily have the ability to run macOS apps — that would require something akin to “Universal Binary” support with Mac apps having to be specifically compiled to generate ARM code and with iOS needing a lot more work to enable a meaningful experience. I don’t see macOS native apps running in iOS any time soon.
