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.

DIOR SADDLE PURSE

Other Brands

Dior Saddle Purse

I just saw the cutest purse ever. Not only is it small, but we love the shape too. It’s the Dior Saddle Purse.

We adore Saddle Bag too, but if you’re are in need for something smaller, then this Purse will fulfill your wishes.

And just like its name says ‘saddle’, this Saddle Purse is inspired by the Horse Saddle, which also explains the shape.

These Saddle Purses are crafted in either Grained Calfskin or Oblique Printed Canvas. It’s basically a very tiny purse for coins or small accessories. The bag opens via the top zipper and there is a 1 main pocket inside.

The leather strap that’s attached to the D logo for Dior has actually a function. It’s also a style boaster, but this D is a hook for carrying keys or other items.

Measuring 12 x 8 cm, the calfskin leather is priced at €290 EUR, £270 GBP

The Oblique Canvas is priced at €260 EUR, £240 GBP via Dior boutiques.

For many, a venture out to the casino is a once in a lifetime opportunity. Many are swayed by the congregation of birthday parties or that of a Hen and Stag-do. Otherwise, it may not rank on the individual’s bucket list.

Never-the-less, this will come around at some point, and impending dread of what to wear will weigh heavy on your mind. So here we take a look at the casino catwalk and what are the clothing etiquettes for both men and women.

ELEGANCE WILL PAY OFF

For many in the modern world of gambling and betting, the garments predominately consist of pajamas or casual sportswear as players take to their favorite online establishments for their casino action. The battle for clientele has picked up between online and land-based casinos over the past decade. For players, you can either head out on a typically cold night and enjoy the selection of table games and slots provided, or stay in and take your pick of hundreds of casinos through sites like www.casinosonlinesuisse.com, which offer more than regular land-based casinos.

There is, however, a certain ‘je ne sais quoi’ when it comes to treading the plush carpets of a land-based casino.

We will tell you how to dress out of your comforts just for that one night so that you can make a grand statement in the casinos while winning plenty of your own.

FROM HOME COMFORTS TO CASINO CLASS

Casino Slot Machine Womens Style
There are indeed many forms of casino out there, and you will know before visiting what type of establishment it is and, like this, what outfit would be appropriate.
  • White Tie: Considered amongst ‘regular’ casino goers as the most formal clothing option of all the possible categories. Women can dawn a suit with what is called the Palazzo cut, matched with elegant shoes. Males: A white shirt is worn with black bowtie and plain waistcoat. A dinner jacket to be worn over the waistcoat and black shoes to match.
  • Black Tie: A slightly relaxed version of the ‘white tie’ ensemble. The Female should wear a classic evening dress with the option of a full-length gown or if themed, a cocktail dress. Males wear a tuxedo or dark suit with a white shirt, black tie and leather smart shoes with dark socks.
  • Formal Wear: Females have the option of a cocktail dress, a suitable black dress or long skirt with a top which should match. For the male, you should wear a dark suit and matching vest. Shirts that are sober in color should be added and with a plain tie. You can adorn colored leather shoes with formal socks.
  • Business: Attributed to the kind of formal wear you go to work in if they have regulations. Female can opt for suites and suitable dresses to be worn with heels and smart stockings. The Male should remain in ‘formal wear.’
  • Casual: Non-offensive prints, and appropriate footwear which must be clean and avoid sports branding.
