Apple Plans on Combining iPhone, iPad, Mac Apps by 2021

Other Brands

Apple Inc. wants to make it easier for software coders to create tools, games and other applications for its main devices in one fell swoop -- an overhaul designed to encourage app development and, ultimately, boost revenue.

The aim of the multistep initiative, code-named “Marzipan,” is that by 2021, developers will be able to build an app once and have it work on the iPhone, iPad and Mac computers, people familiar with the effort said. That should spur the creation of new software, increasing the utility of the company’s gadgets.

Each new app is another revenue opportunity for Apple because it takes a cut of many app-related purchases and subscriptions. The company has positioned its services division as a major growth area. It plans to announce two new services -- a premium Apple News subscription offering and an original video content initiative -- at the end of March, Bloomberg News reported recently.


Later this year, Apple plans to let developers port their iPad apps to Mac computers via a new software development kit that the company will release as early as June at its annual developer conference. Developers will still need to submit separate versions of the app to Apple’s iOS and Mac App Stores, but the new kit will mean they don’t have to write the underlying software code twice, said the people familiar with the plan.

In 2020, Apple plans to expand the kit so iPhone applications can be converted into Mac apps in the same way. Apple engineers have found this challenging because iPhone screens are so much smaller than Mac computer displays.

By 2021, developers will be able to merge iPhone, iPad, and Mac applications into one app or what is known as a “single binary.” This means developers won’t have to submit their work to different Apple App Stores, allowing iOS apps to be downloaded directly from Mac computers -- effectively combining the stores.

The plans are fluid and could be altered, the people said. They asked not to be identified discussing private matters. A spokeswoman for Cupertino, California-based Apple declined to comment.

The most direct benefit of the Marzipan project will be to make life easier for the millions of developers who write software for Apple’s devices. For example, later this year Netflix Inc. would be able to more easily offer a Mac app for watching video by converting its iPad app. By 2021, Twitter Inc., which has mostly abandoned the Mac, could publish a single app for all Apple customers.

Apple previewed the apps plan, without disclosing the road map, at its developers conference last year. Bloomberg News first wrote about the initiative in 2017.

The work coincides with the company’s preparations to merge more of the underpinnings of its hardware. Currently, iPhones and iPads are powered by Apple processors, while Macs use Intel Corp. chips. Apple plans to start transitioning some Macs to its own chips as early as 2020, Bloomberg News reported last year.

Despite the app merger plan, Apple has said it won’t combine iOS and macOS into a single operating system.

Apple isn’t the first company to streamline its app ecosystems. Before Microsoft Corp. discontinued Windows for phones, it pushed a technology called Universal Windows Platform that let developers create single applications that would run on all of its devices. Similarly, Google has brought its Android mobile app store to some laptops running its Chrome OS operating system.

Apple plans to hold its annual software conference from June 3 to June 7 in San Jose, California, according to permit filings reported recently by website MacRumors.

At the event, Apple also plans to debut new software features for its devices, including a dark mode for easier nighttime viewing and new productivity tools for the iPad. The company has also internally weighed previewing a new version of the high-end Mac Pro, according to people familiar with the deliberations.

CHANEL SMALL SQUARE GOLDEN CLASS CC 2.0 WALLET

Other Brands

Remember the Golden Class CC 2.0 WOC? Or the Golden Class CC 2.0 Wallets? Well, introducing the Chanel Small Square Golden Class CC 2.0 Wallet from the Fall Winter 2018 Collection Act 2.

The Design

This new Small Wallet is eye-catching thanks to the new CC logo crafted on the front. The CC logo is linked with a leather strap for opening and closing.

What’s more? One of the identities of this style is the flat quilting. It’s also crafted from shiny lambskin, which is durable but not as durable as caviar or calfskin. This wallet is gorgeous because it’s compact yet it has the space like a long wallet.

And also, we love the gold hardware, which feels a bit vintage-ish.

The Interior

The interior is quite spacious for a small wallet. When you open, there are 2 compartments including 1 zip pocket for coins. And there are multiple compartments including 6 card slots.

The Sizes And Prices

Style code A81432, measuring TBD, priced at $1275 USD, $1500 CAD, €1050 EUR, £930 GBP, $1730 SGD, $9100 HKD, $1710 AUD, ¥143640 JPY, 4630 MYR, ₩1386000 WON via Chanel boutiques.

CHANEL DOUBLE CC SMALL CLUTCH WITH CHAIN

Other Brands

The Small Clutch With Chain has been tested over and over again, and it survived. This bag is cheaper than the WOC and in every season it comes with a new style.

For the Fall Winter 2018 Collection, the Chanel Small Clutch with Chain is even lovelier. Remember the Golden Class Double CC? The logo design looks very similar, but we feel the new one looks more modern.

The Design

The Small Clutch With Chain is one of the most affordable Chanel Bags (for now). This new style is made with shiny lambskin but in flat diamond quilting (not bubbly quilting). The front features a leather strap as closure and it’s designed with the new CC logo in 3D style. It’s very similar like the Gold Class Double CC Bag.

And just like the classic bag, it comes with woven chain leather strap for shoulder and cross body carry. The Small Clutch With Chain offers the same luxury as the bigger bags yet it’s cheaper. However, it does come with a downside and that’s the interior space.

The Interior

This Clutch With Chain is not a big bag, but perfect for the night-outs. Or when you don’t need to carry a lot of stuff. The interior is created with zip pockets.

The Sizes And Prices

Style code A81433, measuring 3.9’ x 1.6’ x 7.5’ inches, priced at $2255 USD, $2575 CAD, €1890 EUR, £1690 GBP, $3160 SGD, $15700 HKD, $3160 AUD, ¥254880 JPY, ₩2376000 WON via Chanel boutiques.
