For developers, what is the biggest surprise for the new ecological environment? The answers are very consistent. From the winners of the Apple Scholarship to the sophisticated developers who have participated in WWDC several times, the answers to the question “What is the most exciting thing you see?” are all seeing the release of SwiftUI. 

Apple announced to hold the Developers Conference from June 3-7

At present, there are over 1.4 billion devices are using iOS, macOS, watchOS or tvOS, whose important updates will launch at the WWDC each year. Normally, new features of these systems all represent their future.

Apple: It is easy to transfer iOS apps to macOS, but no merging

Federighi emphasizes that macOS will never merge with iOS, not even for a touch screen.

At WWDC a few days ago, Apple shared a tool for developers to efficiently transfer iOS apps to macOS, announcing the feature will be available for third-party developers by 2019. But we still have many doubts. Wired has published the interview of Craig Federighi, Apple’s software engineering supervisor, who gave specific answers about this transfer project.

Federighi expressed that this project was established two years ago mainly involved the update for UIkit, as Apple needed to make this iOS frame works for macOS. He also emphasized that it did not mean macOS would be able to run iOS App right after this, it is not automatic. Developers will need to do some extra programming.

New macOS support device list: same as the last year

At Apple WWDC in 2017, the new macOS launched as expected, but it’s called macOS High Sierra, not the names of scenic spots in States as we guessed.

Just like the name indicates, its coming doesn’t exclude any type of Mac. In other words, as long as your Mac computer supports macOS Sierra, it can be updated to the this new version. Specific devices include:

  • MacBook (from 2009 and later)
  • iMac (from 2009 and later)
  • MacBook Air (from 2010 and later)
  • MacBook Pro (from 2010 and later)
  • Mac Mini (from 2010and later)
  • Mac Pro (from 2010 and later)

Starting from last year, macOS Sierra no longer supports Mac devices produced in 2007,  2008, and 2009. Apple said that Mac’s software update cycle will be closer to the hardware update cycle. So the launch of High Sierra doesn’t mean those old machines won’t be supported, which did surprise many users.

But since currently Mac hardware update frequency has been greatly lowered, many old type of machines still have their value. Although old devices will not support every feature of the new system, many users won’t be worried their devices may lose Apple’s support due to this update.
