Apple to begin with, it is a universal purchase for iOS and mac os apps starting next month

A lot of Apple iPhone users are also Mac-only at that point. If you need to consume the Apple KoolAid, you’re bound to stick with the company’s eco-system. In order to make things easier for those of you who own both an iOS device and a mac os machine, in March, Apple will be in the implementation of universal purchases of apps as well. This means that if you buy an app from the Mac App Store, you have to own the App Store version of the app.

Apple sent out a notice to developers on Wednesday, in which you will see to it that their clients will be in a position to pay for an app or make an in-app purchase, and it will count as a purchase on these platforms. To put it simply, Apple wrote to the developers: “as of March 2020, you will be able to distribute the iphone, ipad, iPadOS, mac os, and the tvOS version of the app as a universal purchase allowing customers to be able to make the most of your app and in‑app purchases on a variety of platforms, with the purchase of just one.” Apple recommends that developers build and test apps-with the help of a single of the bundle IDENTIFIER in Xcode 11.4 beta.
Apple says that the categories in the App Store and the Mac App Store will be unified in order to help the developers of the apps easily accessible to users. Among these changes, windows apps coming soon titles in the following categories: “Books”, “Food & Drink”, “Magazines and Newspapers”, “Navigation”, and “Shopping”. In addition, it is the individual “Photography” and “Video” sections are available on the Mac App Store will be merged into a category called “Photos & Videos”. For Mac apps, and are waiting for an update, it will automatically be moved to the new, combined class. And the “Kids” sub-category in the “Games” list, it will no longer be seen on the Mac App Store. The developers were also reminded by Apple that they are able to change the categories and sub-categories, that is, applications are due to the distribution of an update to the app.
This is really a great news for iOS and mac os users, since they will no longer have to buy the same app twice, once for each platform. It may be recalled that last year, there was a report on the initiative, which Apple called “Marzipan.” The company would be launching as a universal app in the store, by 2021, allowing the developers to submit an app to all iOS and Mac devices.
New-universal-app-store-for-Apple-to-date return up to and including 2017. A report from that year, pulled out of the Twitter app, as a reason why the new universal applications are available for Apple devices at this time. The mac version of Twitter, at that time, it was a way behind the iOS version in terms of updates and new features as well. A universal app store, it would ensure that Mac users get the latest versions of the apps (along with their iOS-using counterparts.

The one thing that Apple has said that it does not want to do is to create a universal operating system for both iOS and Mac.
