The apps would be designed in such a way that they can work with a touchscreen, mouse and trackpad depending on which platform it is running.
Common apps, possibly with a single App Store, could go a long way towards helping improve the situation in the Mac App Store, which has not done almost as well in terms of consumer reception and library of offerings compared to its iOS counterpart. Unified iOS/macOS apps could then be offered on the Mac's version of the App Store, rejuvenating the rare Apple shop that has long resembled a ghost town.
The next iterations of Apple Inc.'s iOS and macOS operating systems may pack a big surprise for application makers.
But the latest iOS devices powered by Apple's A-series ARM processors have achieved CPU and GPU performance parity with some Intel Macs, conceivably enabling the company's tablets and phones to run desktop/laptop-caliber apps without stumbling. It could begin making the tools available to developers earlier, however, per the report, in advance of a broad consumer release. However, the new system, dubbed Marzipan, could be changed or canceled, sources told Bloomberg. It would also be beneficial to developers who would be able to get their apps in front of more people without putting in the extra work of creating a separate desktop version of their service. It's uncertain whether developers could still opt to create applications exclusively for one platform: that would likely be more of concern to those behind desktop software, which might be unsuitable to either mobile device displays or the processing power available in a smartphone or tablet.
Bloomberg's sources, however, say Apple has codenamed its project to combine the app development Marzipan. Apple is reportedly planning to give users a single set of apps that work equally well on iPhones, iPads, and Macs.
Apple's reported plans are reminiscent of Microsoft's efforts with the Universal Windows Platform. Google took an alternative approach, bringing Android app support and the Google Play Store to Chrome OS.
