“Apple told me today that they will no longer be developing its professional photography application, Aperture,” Jim Dalrymple reports for The Loop.

“‘With the introduction of the new Photos app and iCloud Photo Library, enabling you to safely store all of your photos in iCloud and access them from anywhere, there will be no new development of Aperture,’” said Apple in a statement provided to The Loop,” Dalrymple reports. “‘When Photos for OS X ships next year, users will be able to migrate their existing Aperture libraries to Photos for OS.'”

Dalrymple reports, “Apple was very clear when I spoke with them this morning that development on other pro apps like Logic Pro and Final Cut Pro is continuing. Professionals in those app categories should not worry about their apps — they will continue as normal.”
