Macs may run iOS apps in 2018

That would mean developers could make one app that works equally well on iPhones, iPads, and Macs. Much the way Apple plans to unify apps, it could also one day use the same main processor on Macs and iOS devices.

The next iterations of Apple Inc.'s iOS and macOS operating systems may pack a big surprise for application makers.

The Mac App Store is a ghost town of limited selection and rarely updated programs.

Others, however, had a more positive view, even while acknowledging that it could be a hard transition for Mac developers in particular. Because this is all so tentative, it's also possible that the decision makers at Apple could change their minds and cancel this endeavor entirely. 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.

The apps would work with either a touchscreen or a mouse, much in the same fashion as Microsoft's Windows platform and apps now work.

Bloomberg's sources, however, say Apple has codenamed its project to combine the app development Marzipan. Microsoft switched to its Universal Windows Platform (UWP) as part of its ill-fated mobile strategy, allowing developers to create a single title that would run - and display correctly - whether it was being used on a laptop, a smartphone, or a tablet.

An Apple spokesperson declined to comment.

Naturally, as is the case with Apple and reports about its future plans, this could prove to be a feature that Apple will decide to change course on, or ditch altogether. A universal app platform would go a long way toward bringing the two operating systems closer together. Google took an alternative approach, bringing Android app support and the Google Play Store to Chrome OS. However, a Chinese clothing brand named "Kon" with a very similar logo is now suing the iPhone maker for stealing its logo for the App Store, The Verge reports. They also advised the iPhone and iPad users to avoid downloading or purchasing the game at all cost despite "Cuphead" not being available on the device.
