Apple’s macOS 10.15 could include more apps ported from iPad

“Apple’s ongoing project to make it relatively simple for developers to port iPad software to macOS is apparently on schedule. This will reportedly be a highlight of next month’s developers conference,” Ed Hardy writes for Cult of Mac. “In addition, Apple executives will unveil several of their own iOS apps ported to macOS 10.15, as well as a Mac version of the Music app.”

“The tools developers need to port iPad apps to macOS could be introduced at WWDC 2019 in June, according to Bloomberg,” Hardy writes. “To demonstrate, the iPad version of Apple’s Podcasts app will launch with macOS 10.15. In addition, the rumored combination of Find My iPhone and Find My Friends apps will also be part of this Mac upgrade.”

Hardy writes, “There could be Mac versions of Screen Time and Siri Shortcuts, as well as a redesigned Reminders app, unveiled next month at WWDC as well.”

  1. Hey. Based on my own experience of using it, I would advise downloading Combo Update if you have several poppies at home, since each model has its own delta-update build. In addition, when updating via Software Update, sometimes a strange impression occurs: this program does not check the update just downloaded for integrity. If suddenly something is not enough, she does not undertake to do it and will immediately start betting. Accordingly, after installation, any problems will arise if the computer does not want to download the updated system. A good remedy for such cases is to reinstall the Combo Update downloaded from the Apple site, as it accurately checks the update package before installation. Therefore, it is better to install Combo Update right away, especially if you have had problems with Software Update in the past.
