- Apple’s cross-device development kit is said to be codenamed ‘Marzipan’.
- The kit might enable app developers to write a single app for iPhone, iPad and Mac.
- App devs might not even need to submit the app on different app stores for review.
At last year’s MWC 2018 event, Apple announced that it is working on a platform that will cut down work for those who are developing apps for both iOS and macOS. The company’s senior VP of software engineering, Craig Federighi, also unveiled some Mac apps like Stocks, Home, News, and Voice Memos apps that were a result of the said technology. Now, Bloomberg reports, citing people close to the development, that by 2021 Apple could bring in a multistep initiative code-named “Marzipan,” which will enable developers to write apps that will work on the iPhone, iPad and the Mac. This could mean that by 2021, app devs might not have to rewrite code for developing the same app for different platforms or submit the apps to different app stores for review.
