It was reported yesterday that Apple has delayed some upcoming iOS features to next year for iOS 12 as it’s going to focus on improving the platform’s performance and security this year. The company has reportedly delayed several new iOS features that it was due to introduce at WWDC 2018 and according to a new report this focus on performance and security improvements will extend to macOS as well. However, one major feature has reportedly not been dropped and that’s the ability to run iPad apps on Mac.
The report suggests that Apple is going to try and strike a balance this year between improving the quality and performance of its software while also introducing enough new feature to satisfy fans that look forward to new features every year.
It was first reported last year that Apple had an internal project which allows users to run iPad apps on Mac. It was said that this feature will be released with a major macOS update in 2018.
Axios reports today that while the ability to run iPad apps on Mac adds a high degree of complexity to this year’s macOS update, this will be a significant new feature for Mac and won’t be dropped.
Whether or not the company actually ends up pushing out this feature later this year remains to be seen. We’ll only know for sure when the next major macOS update is unveiled at WWDC 2018 this summer.
