Macs may run iOS apps in 2018
Apple may allow Mac computers to run iOS apps as part of its autumn 2018 macOS software update, according to a Bloomberg report. However, said iOS apps on Mac would rely on mouse and keyboard navigation in lieu of a touchscreen, something Apple remains hesitant to include on Mac computers.
Citing “people familiar with the matter” (Apple declined to comment), the effort to bring iOS apps to Mac is known as project ‘Marzipan’, and is expected to be a marquee feature of the 2018 macOS release. As such, we could see this rumored at Apple’s 2018 Worldwide Developers Conference – where we always see the next versions of iOS and macOS.
